- Great 8TB capacity in a standard 3.5-inch form factor
- Unrivaled power efficiency
- Reliable, field-proven HelioSeal process and 7Stac design
- Rebuild Assist mode shrinks RAID recovery time and nearly eliminates system performance degradation during rebuild
- 12Gb/s SAS provides compatibility with savvy data centers
8TB capacity and low energy consumption - that’s the power of helium. Meet Ultrastar He8, HGST’s hard drive based on the proven HelioSeal platform. Ultrastar He8 raises the standard for capacity and power efficiency in cloud and hyperscale data center environments.
Lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) has become the focus of data center architects. Through HGST’s patented HelioSeal process, the Ultrastar He8 provides the optimal TCO value proposition by delivering the extra-high capacity at 8TB, reduced weight and running 5°C cooler. The Ultrastar He8 lays the foundation for future growth in massive scale-out environments, too.
