Doubling the capacity density

As data center professionals across the globe work to meet growing enterprise needs, they
face the dilemma of storing more data in the same footprint while also reducing power and HVAC
consumption. The new Ultrastar™ A7K2000 provides twice the data storage capacity of the
prior generation Ultrastar A7K1000 drive, and does so using fewer watts. It is now possible to
achieve a colossal 1.2 petabytes (PB) in the footprint of a standard 19-inch enterprise storage
rack by deploying the 2TB A7K2000 in a stack of ten 4U, 60-bay enclosures.

Combining 7200 RPM performance and granular power control

Operating at 7200 RPM, the Hitachi Ultrastar A7K2000 offers better overall performance than
slower-RPM, capacity-oriented drives at impressively low power-consumption rates. When
compared to the previous generation Ultrastar A7K1000, the A7K2000 offers up to a 155%
improvement in sustained data transfer rate, and a 120% improvement in watts-per-GB. With
five Advanced Power Management modes, a 36% reduction in watts during low-RPM idle
mode, and using less than 1W during standby/sleep mode, the Ultrastar A7K2000 can help
data centers achieve lower AC power and HVAC requirements, freeing up precious headroom
for growing enterprise needs.
