Western Digital is excited to announce the new Ultrastar® DC SS530 SAS SSD, our organization ’s highest-density drive along with the fastest dual-port SAS SSD available on the market. The Ultrastar DC SS530 doubles the maximum capacity compared to this prior-generation SAS SSD to a whopping 15.36TB1. Its performance sets new business records one of SAS SSDs with around 440,000 random read operations per minute as well as 320,000 random write operations per secondtwo . The Ultrastar DC SS530 proceeds to push storage bounds for SAS SSDs, supplying the much needed horsepower required to handle massive gains in both unstructured and structured data for mission-critical data warehouse and cloud software.
What Can 15TB in a Single Drive Do?
Let’s take a little time to consider exactly what this high capacity SSD can perform. One major tech company made accessible to the populace a 13.5TB (or 13,500GB) data collection that contains approximately 110 billion consumer interactions of its various properties that are online. That dataset is now able to fit inside a single Ultrastar DC SS530 SSD that may provide adequate performance to drive high-throughput data mining activities utilized in AI and machine learning algorithms.
SAS Interfaces for Flexibility and High Availability
The SAS interface is a well understood and dependable way to scale drive counts to 48 or 60 drives in a 4U server. Employing the Ultrastar DC SS530 it now becomes possible to set up up to 737PB to 921PB of all blazing-fast solid-state storage in a single server. Alternatively, you can pair the Ultrastar DC SS530 using Western Digital’s 14TB Ultrastar DC HC530 hard disk in a hybrid setting to balance high density and performance within software-defined storage environments, reducing TCO. This flexibility of easily picking between hard drives and SSDs is among the major benefits of the SAS interface.
Another major benefit of this Ultrastar DC SS530’s SAS interface is its dual-port configuration. The SAS connector on the drive may connect to 2 separate SAS controllers, which allows for seamless transitions in the case of connectivity or server failures and helps ensure that the data you want is available once you require it.
SAS Storage for AFAs and Hybrid Arrays
Many All-Flash Arrays (AFAs) and Hybrid Arrays in the Market Now leverage the SAS protocol. The Ultrastar DC SS530 empowers the manufacturers of these storage systems to maintain their existing investment in SAS storage while providing their clients with much higher performance and double the storage frequency.
With increasing international regulations for data privacy and the rising consequences of non-compliance, data protection and security are top-of-mind for IT professionals now. The Ultrastar DC SS530 will supply the most recent data protection options, such as TCG Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) and TCG FIPS-validated versions, which can be required for certain government programs.
Easing Adoption with Proven Quality and Characteristics
Western Digital has a long history of working closely with OEM customers and supplying trusted enterprise storage apparatus. Our proven track record of quality and service minimizes qualification efforts for OEMs and variety manufacturers, along with the Ultrastar DC SS530’s unique value proposition is ideal for decreasing TCO:
