Seagate 450GB Cheetah 15K.7 Internal SAS HDD Product Details
Cheetah 15K.7 hard drives have field-proven reliability with the performance and capacities for legacy 3.5-inch mission critical enterprise storage.
The Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 is the highest performing, highest capacity 3.5-inch mission critical hard drive with best-in-class reliability for Tier 1 storage environments. This industry-leading enterprise drive reduces storage costs per GB while increasing capacity per watt. Drive power consumption is dynamically optimized at all levels of activity with Seagate’s exclusive PowerTrim technology.
Third-generation perpendicular recording delivers up to 600GB.
Unprecedented performance with sustained data rate of up to 204MB/s—a 16 percent increase over last generation
Industry’s highest 3.5-inch drive reliability at 1.6-million-hours MTBF
Seagate PowerTrim technology provides a 62 percent improvement in GBs/W at idle over typical 3.5-inch hard drives.
Read/write advances deliver nonrecoverable error rate of 1x10E16
Available in 4Gb/s FC or 6Gb/s SAS interfaces (supports SAS 2.0 feature set)
TCG-compliant Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) option cuts IT drive retirement expenses while securely protecting data and is one of the easiest, most cost-effective security measures you can implement.
FIPS Self-Encrypting Drive option provides all the benefits of SED and is NIST certified to meet U.S., Canada and U.K. federal data encryption compliance requirements.
Business and transaction processing
Storage area networks and networked attached storage
E-mail, decision support, Internet and e-commerce
Government-grade, data-at-rest security when drives leave your control
Drive retirement cost reduction and drive life extension strategies
Lowest Cost of Ownership
Seventh-generation Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 drive is the fastest, highest capacity and most reliable ever.
Lower watts/GB ratio helps achieve reduced power and cooling costs while optimizing capacity requirements.
Higher performance with fewer drives—reducing support infrastructure, physical space requirements and storage management costs
The highest reliability of any 3.5-inch drive, with increased system reliability due to the need for fewer drives
Seagate continues to focus on reliability and data protection. MTBF is an industry-leading 1.6 million hours.
Seagate-exclusive enhanced Error Correction Code better maintains performance throughout the life of the drive and reduces the probability of lost data.
The third generation of Seagate-exclusive Background Media Scan proactively scans the media for potential defects during drive idle time. It enables incipient errors to be corrected before data is lost.
Quick and Robust Download feature loads new firmware in seconds, with built-in protection to ensure no corruption in the event of a power failure during firmware switch.
Strong Enough for National Security
The Cheetah 15K.7 drive is available in SED or FIPS SED models; both eliminate the need to overwrite or physically destroy drives, enable secure return of drives for warranty or expired lease purposes, and allow organizations to securely 4repurpose or sell hard drives. For added physical security and more stringent regulatory compliance needs, the FIPS SED model is FIPS 140-2 Validated for use with sensitive but unclassified or protected (A or B) class data. These Seagate Secure models help OEMs and system builders gain competitive advantage, differentiate solutions (with strong data security), sell to new customers (that require strong data security), and protect brand equity (and customer confidence).
