The Seagate Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDD is the only 2.5-inch enterprise-class hard drive delivering both 2TB capacities and enterprise reliability at the industry's lowest power per watt for storage-hungry nearline applications. Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDDs reduce per-gigabyte cooling and energy costs by packing high capacities into an SFF, low-power-consumption drive. Included Seagate PowerChoice technology can further reduce energy costs by empowering IT organisations to tailor systems for optimal performance and power consumption. This results in power savings of up to 54% over traditional 3.5-inch drives, and potentially operating at less than 1 Watt when idle. PowerChoice is based on the T10-compliant power management standard. Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDDs can help you deploy additional enterprise storage without expanding your data centre. With its 15mm z-height, the 2TB model is the third generation of the first 2.5-inch hard drive capacity optimised for dense, space-constrained data centres. This model can help you store twice as much data in the same footprint. Best-Fit Applications: Storage-hungry business applications, Storage area networks (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS), Maximum-capacity entry-level servers and blade servers, Rich media content storage, Enterprise backup and restore D2D, virtual tape and Cloud computing.
