The Seagate Enterprise 3.5 inch Hard Disk Drives, formerly known as Constellation ES series are capacity-optimized hard drives that support the highest density storage per square foot capable of up to 4TB per drive allowing for maximum density server and storage solutions. Drives are also perfect for reliable, 24×7 bulk data storage and have predictable 7200-RPM performance in SAS or SATA environments. The drives are energy efficient with low power and cooling requirements. Seagate has also implemented their Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology validated as FIPS 140-2 Level 2 conformant for sensitive but unclassified data into the drive’s firmware.

High capacity RAID storage in multi-drive chassis requires predictable and consistent performance. The Seagate Enterprise drives provides enhanced error correction, super-parity and end-to-end SAS-based data integrity for accurate data storage each and every time. With its robust 7200-RPM performance, multi-drive firmware, ramp based load-unload technology and a humidity sensor. Seagate says these drives provide the perfect solution for maximizing your enterprise system with consistency and reliability in even the harshest environments.
Seagate Enterprise hard disk drives uses less than 11.86W on average. Seagate “PowerChoice” technology enables organizations to tailor systems for optimal energy usage resulting in up to 90% more power savings.
It appears new Seagate Enterprise series hard disk drives are a good solution for data centers that need reliable storage devices to meet the growing demands of unstructured data. We have not as yet tested these drives to confirm our real world specs.
