Highest capacities and best reliability available in an SFF, 7200-RPM enterprise-class nearline drive
Best-in-class rotational vibration tolerance ensures unrivaled performance in high spindle-density applications, and multi-drive firmware maximizes system availability
Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) models with Seagate Instant Secure Erase technology
6Gb/s SAS with improved data integrity, scalability and fastest data access
2.5-inch 1TB capacity-optimized drive for dense, space-constrained data centers allows you to store twice as much data in the same footprint
The Seagate Constellation.2 drive is the only 2.5-inch enterprise-class hard drive delivering both 1TB capacities and enterprise reliability at the industry’s lowest power consumption for storage-hungry nearline applications. Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) and FIPS 140-2 Validated SED security options available to help you protect your data. The Constellation Hard Drive maximizes data center footprint with up to 76TB per square foot, plus it provides energy efficient storage at under 3.9 watts (idle). In addition, this drive provides the highest nearline reliability with an MTBF of 1.4M hours and 6Gb/s performance in both SAS and SATA interfaces. This drive is the perfect solution when you need to: maximize capacity in servers and blade servers, build high-density direct attached storage (DAS); storage area networks (SAN); and network attached storage (NAS), store rich media content and centralized surveillance data, serve cloud-computing storage requirements, secure sensitive data at rest, simplify your drive life extension and drive retirement strategies.
