Seagate Enterprise Performance 15K HDD v4 450GB Enterprise. The Seagate Enterprise Performance 15K HDD v4 brings an increase in capacity to the 2.5″ 15K HDD segment. The 15K v4 offers capacities of 600GB, 450GB, and 300GB in the 2.5″ form factor. Along with the bump in capacity, Seagate offers 228 MB/s in sequential performance, a 24% increase in the SDR (Sustained Data Rate) over competitive offerings. The 15K v4 also brings a 3% increase in random read performance, and a 4% jump in random write performance.
The increased speed of 15K HDDs makes them attractive for addressing Tier-1 application performance requirements. The 2.5″ form factor works well for blade, rack, and tower servers hosting transaction-based applications, and addresses increasing demands for more performance and capacity in a smaller space. The 15K v4 offers many of the inherent advantages of the 2.5″ form factor, such as lower power consumption and higher performance, in comparison to the 3.5″ 15K HDDs.
One of the newest additions to the Seagate 15K line is the arrival of Turbo SSHD models. These hybrid models provide seamless workload acceleration without any user configuration or management. We recently took an in-depth look at the Seagate Turbo SSHD, and the inclusion of a 32GB layer of eMLC NAND cache delivers incredible performance benefits. The option to choose a standard 15K HDD, or a 15K SSHD with built-in caching, provides users the flexibility to tailor their deployments to application requirements.
