ICY News: Western Digital's HGST Announces Its New Ultrastar He6 Drives
6TB 3.5-inch Helium Platform Enterprise Hard Drive
World’s first helium HDD – Patented HelioSeal™ technology enables this new building block for future growth
Industry’s first 6TB HDD – Innovative 7Stac™ disk design enables the world’s highest capacity
TCOptimized™ platform – Delivers higher capacity, lower power, cooler and quieter operation in a standard 3.5-inch form factor
The reduction in turbulence for the spinning disk allows HGST to offer a seven-disk design in a traditional 3.5-inch form factor. In addition to being the world’s first helium-filled hard drive, HGST Ultrastar He6 is also the first hard drive in the industry to offer a 6-terabyte capacity. This design delivers a 50% capacity gain and still reduces the energy needed to run the drive by up to 23%.
