WD Prepares Voluminous Re+ HDDs for Data Centers

Western Digital announces a new high-capacity 3.5-inch HDD for data centers. The WD Re+ will be available in versions of up to 6 TB. All of them are designed with power-saving ideas in mind; hence, their maximal power consumption index does not go above 6 W. The new-comer employs five-platter architecture and SATA 6 Gb/sec interface that guarantees the maximal efficiency level. Moreover, its MTBF index approximates 1.2 million hours on average workload index of 550 TB per year.

The WD Re+ is distinguished by the following advantages:

— the incorporation of dual actuator positioning system that improves the drive’s working efficiency;

— the implementation of RAFF technology that monitors HDD parameters in real time and compensates for the linear and angular vibration;

— the employment of StableTrac technology that reduces vibrations and stabilizes drive platters;

— the usage of TLER technology that prevents latencies or an abrupt destruction of RAID … …

Crucial Teases New TLC-Based BX200 Solid-State Drive

Crucial has found a way to consolidate the needs of budget- and efficiency-oriented customer groups. Therefore, it developed a new series of SSDs, based on TLC memory. The BX200 2.5-inch drives (7 mm case depth) come equipped with 16-nm chips by Micron as well as Silicon Motion SM2256 controller. All the models share SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and are compatible with Crucial Storage Executive & Acronis True Image HD utilities.

Crucial BX200 are available in three capacity versions: 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. Their maximal sequential Read/Write speed makes up 540/490 Mb/sec, whereas the maximal random Read/Write index achieves 66.000 & 78.000 IOPS correspondingly. As far as one can see, there is no visible decrease in performance, if compared with MLC memory showings.

The new-comers are estimated for 72 TB of data lifespan; this equals to 40 GB of daily loading over a span of 5 years (MTBF – 1.500.000 hours). In order to provide for the utmost reliability, Crucial adds a …
