  Detailed Product Information

Economics and Access Speed: Key Requirements

for Low Capacity HDDs in the Data Center

As the industry evolves to develop purpose-built solutions for growing data storage

requirements, IT managers continue to rely on lower capacity drives that are

economical to acquire, yet deliver quick and reliable data access for traditional data

center applications. UltrastarR DC HC310* is a low-capacity HDD, with 6TB and 4TB

offerings, that helps address economic and access requirements of many traditional

IT workloads. Low capacity drives also help address architecture limitations. Part of

our mid-capacity DC HC300 series, the Ultrastar DC HC310 is designed for traditional

storage and server applications as well as distributed and scalable computing,

including block and fi le storage architectures, providing fast 7,200 RPM performance

and lower acquisition cost to help ease budget constraints. Ultrastar DC HC310 is

offered with either 6Gb/s SATA or 12Gb/s SAS interface in a choice of 512e or 4Kn

formats. A 512n option is also available on 4TB models to support legacy systems with

native 512-byte block sizes.

Technology Innovation Delivers Effi ciency and

Performance for Traditional and Legacy Systems

Ultrastar DC HC310 is based on a new 4-disk air platform design that uses conventional

magnetic recording (CMR) technology in a 3.5-inch large form factor. Compared to the

prior generation, Ultrastar 7K6000, the DC HC310 delivers a 12% performance boost

and uses slightly larger-diameter media. It features a second-generation, dual-stage

micro actuator to enhance head positioning accuracy for better drive performance.

Write performance gains are also supported by Western Digital’s media cache

architecture, a disk-based caching technology that provides a large cache area on

the disk, which also improves reliability and data integrity during unexpected power

loss. Finally, the addition of fl ash-based non-volatile cache (NVC) on both SATA and

SAS models helps improve write performance. The Ultrastar DC HC310 also includes

a Rebuild Assist feature, which helps dramatically reduce RAID rebuild times and

maintain system performance during the rebuild process. Learn more in our Rebuild

Assist technical brief.

Data Security with Trusted Quality, Reliability

Compliance and privacy requirements drive the need for increased data security.

Ultrastar DC HC310 helps protect data from unauthorized use by offering security and

encryption options. SAS models offer hardware-based encryption options, including

a Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Enterprise_A, TCG with FIPS 140–2 certifi cation,

Level 2. The Ultrastar DC HC310 extends Western Digital’s long-standing tradition of

reliability leadership with a 2M-hour MTBF2 rating and a 5-year limited warranty.
