All-in-one storage solution
The latest addition to the Hitachi portfolio combines ultimate performance with high capacity
in the same drive. The Ultrastar™ 15K600 can store up to 600GB of data while spinning
at 15,000 RPM. That amounts to a capacity growth of 33% over its predecessor to keep
pace with digital data growth and improve space efficiency in today’s data centers. At the
same time, sequential performance increased by 23% compared to prior generation to keep
data moving faster. The 64MB cache buffer is the largest in the industry in its class and the
15K600 is designed for Hitachi reliability. The 6Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and 4Gb/s
Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FCAL) interfaces support the reliability required in the most
demanding enterprise computing environments like on-line transaction processing, intensive
data analysis, multi-user applications and data warehousing.

Friends of the earth
Compared to its predecessor, power usage is reduced by up to 31% to help reduce the
cooling requirements in data centers. In addition, Advanced Power Management feature
enables multiple idle modes in order to optimize power usage and save even more on energy
costs. The 15K600 also saves money because the larger capacity enables higher data storage
density in the current footprint without further expansion of the data center. These eco-friendly
features qualify the 15K600 for the EcoTrac classification.

Compromise nothing
The Ultrastar 15K600 self-encrypting models conform to the Trusted Computing Group’s
Enterprise A Security Subsystem Class encryption specification. Now, customers can reduce
costs associated with drive retirement and extend drive life by enabling repurposing of drives.

Hitachi quality and service
Hitachi’s Ultrastar 15K600 extends the company’s long-standing tradition of performance and
reliability leadership. A balanced combination of new and proven technologies enables high
reliability and availability to customer data.

Hitachi drives are backed by an array of technical
support and services, which may include customer and integration assistance. Hitachi is
dedicated to providing a breadth of hard disk drive solutions to satisfy all of today’s demanding
computing needs.
