Play Well with Others
Broadly compatible with most PC and major enterprise operating systems. Specifically designed for use in enterprise-grade data centers and storage systems.
Leading the Way
Energy-assisted magnetic recording (EAMR) technology enables higher media precision and increases areal density. The triple-stage actuator (TSA) enhances the accuracy of head-positioning and delivers better performance and data integrity to also increase areal density. Both EAMR and TSA are available only in 16TB capacities and above.
