HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.



HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.


The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

Western Digital Enters the Market with My Cloud EX2 Ultra NAS

WD came out with a new enterprise-class storage, entitled My Cloud EX2 Ultra. The model is intended for the installation of two HDDs with the maximal capacity of 12 TB. According to the manufacturer, this NAS will be a perfect choice for professionals who require automatic data synchronization, file sharing, data backup, etc.



WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra is based on 1.3-GHz CPU accompanied by 1 GB DDR3. The pair ensures the realization of fast data transferring as well as smooth video streaming. The compatible drives support RAID 0/1, JBOD & Spanning operational modes. Backup process might be realized in several ways: data backup to the other NAS, to the external storage via USB 3.0 port or to the cloud storage via LAN/WAN network.


The model is shipped with pre-installed HDDs (WD Red with support for NASware 3.0 technology), configured to operate in RAID 1. NASware 3.0 is called to improve solidity, minimize data loss prospects in case of power off or voltage surge. If required, …

SilentiumPC Offers a Budgetary Fortis 2 XE1226 CPU Cooler

SilentiumPC, a comparatively ‘fresh’ player in the cooling market, has recently introduced a new CPU cooler for budget-oriented customers. Codenamed Fortis 2 XE1226, it features 130x95x155 mm dimensions and weighs 880 g. It is intended to support the majority of modern platforms, including Intel LGA 775/1366/2011/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+.



The model is all about two-section aluminum heatspreader with a copper polished base, six U-shape heatpipes (6 mm each), and a single 120 mm fan DF12025. The latter is based on a hydraulic bearing and supports PWM technology. It is able to alter speed from the minimal 500 RPM to the maximal 1500 RPM. Herein, the ultimate noise level does not go beyond 22 dBA.


The DF12025 fan requires 12V rail and 0.2A current to be powered via 4-pin PWM connector. On the maximal rotational speed it produces 65 CFM airflow. Besides, testing results prove that this fan is estimated for about 50.000 hours of fail-proof operation.
