Constellation 3 TB in 7200 rpm Seagate

Yesterday, Seagate announced SSDs and hard drives 2.5-inch Savvio for professionals. But there are also listings for lovers of storage, with the Constellation ES.2. This new range offers a capacity of 3 TB hard drives in 3.5 inch. There are four versions of the Constellation ES.2: SATA 6 Gbit / s with or without hardware encryption and SAS 6 Gbit / s with or without encryption.

Hard drives have a MTBF of 1.2 million hours, a 64 MB cache and spin at 7200 rpm. The maximum flow rate announced is 155 MB / s, slightly less than the Savvio 10K.5 announced at the same time. Consumption is obviously high, 3.5 inches requires: 7.4 W and 11.3 W in idle operation. Seagate is the servers that need large storage space while maintaining good performance, Savvio range is limited in capacity.
