The HGST Ultrastar 7K3000 is the first HGST 7200 RPM drive available in both 6Gb/s SATA and 6Gb/s SAS interfaces and also available in two encryption options. The Ultrastar 7K3000 SATA model integrates easily with legacy SATA and Fibre Channel to SATA environments. The Ultrastar 7K3000 SATA model is available with a bulk data encryption (BDE) option. The Ultrastar 7K3000 dual-port SAS model is targeted at emerging 6Gb/s SAS enterprise infrastructure and is available with industry standard TCG Enterprise_A encryption. When enabled, both of these hardware-based implementations encrypt all data on the drive using a private security key as it is written to the disk, and then decrypt it with the key as it is retrieved, giving users an extreme level of data protection. These security options not only protect sensitive data but also reduce the time and effort involved in re-deploying hard drives since without the key, the data is unrecoverable. Operating at 7200 RPM, the HGST Ultrastar 7K3000 offers better overall performance than slower RPM capacity-oriented drives, and does so at impressively low power consumption rates. When compared to HGST's previous generation Ultrastar A7K2000, the 7K3000 is up to 3 times faster in sustained data transfer rates. The Ultrastar 7K3000 can help data centres achieve lower AC power and HVAC requirements. With five Advanced Power Management modes, the Ultrastar 7K3000 achieves a 59% reduction in watts during low RPM idle mode, and uses less than 1W during standby/sleep modes, freeing up precious headroom for growing enterprise needs.
