Dell Expands Server and Storage System Capacities Using New Hitachi Ultrastar HDDs

Hitachi Combines Performance and Power Efficiency in an Enterprise-Hardened 450GB Drive.

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies today announced that Dell (DELL) is using Ultrastar™ 15K450 hard drives, which have a low power efficiency index of 0.03 watts/GB, to deliver higher capacities across multiple platforms in its PowerEdge™ Server and PowerVault™ Storage product families.

Hitachi is driving the new industry metric of “watts/GB,” as customers are increasingly making decisions based on power profile for the increasing amounts of data that they store. Hitachi’s latest Ultrastar drive clearly raises the bar for the industry with respect to “green” hard drives, without sacrificing enterprise class performance. The 3.5-inch, 15,000 RPM drives deliver 450GB of storage and a 30 percent improvement generation-to-generation in sequential throughput. They also have 50 percent more available capacity than their 300GB predecessors, but similar low power characteristics. IT managers will benefit from a lower total cost of ownership for enterprise storage, with reduced datacenter footprint and energy usage.

Dell server and storage solutions are designed for businesses seeking maximum performance and availability for email, database and other demanding enterprise applications.

“We are pleased to be the first to ship server and storage systems using high performance 450GB SAS disk drives based on Hitachi's new Ultrastar 15K450,” said Darren Thomas, vice president and general manager, Dell Enterprise Storage. “We selected Hitachi Ultrastar drives for our PowerEdge and PowerVault product families because they have always delivered the performance and rock solid reliability that customers have come to expect from Dell.”

About the Ultrastar 15K450

The Ultrastar 15K450, announced in April, 2008, is designed for use in mission-critical server and storage applications, such as online transaction processing, intensive database queries and other multi-user applications. The drive features average seek times as low as 3.3 milliseconds and the fast rotational speeds reduce average latency time to 2 milliseconds, enabling customers to access data more quickly and efficiently. The drives are available with either 3Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or 4Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC) interfaces.
