- 1TB - 14TB in SATA and SAS
- Enterprise Data Center Grade Drive
- 5 Years Limited Warranty
The breadth and depth of Big Data is driving the universal need for higher capacities across a broad spectrum of applications and workloads. Laying the foundation for a worry-free data center, Western Digital delivers the capacity to conquer the data explosion with the Ultrastar DC HC500 series of hard drives. Built using HelioSeal technology, the industrys only fifth-generation helium platform, the DC HC500 series is
designed for public and private cloud environments, where storage density, Watts/TB and $/TB are critical for creating the most cost-efficient infrastructure. HelioSeal technology is key to achieving higher drive capacities, greater reliability ratings and extreme power efficiency. The result is a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our cloud and enterprise customers.
Solves TCO Challanges

What is the Highest Capacity of WD Ultrastar Drive available ?
Can I use a WD Ultrastar Drive in Servers, NAS and Surveillance ?
What is the meaning of Limited Warranty ?
What interface are WD ultrastar Available ?
Are there 4K native drives in Ultrastar ?
What are the encryptions available on WD Ultrastar Drives ?
How do you read the part numbers of WD Ultrastar? what does E6,52 signify
WU = Western Digital Ultrastar
H= Helim ( S = Standard) All the drives from 1 to 8 tb ( and new 10TB AIR) have S. 12,14 TB have H to denote helium platform
72= 7200 RPM
1414 = 14TB full capacity , 14TB capacity of this model. ( 1412 would mean 14 full capacity and 12tb capacity of this model)
AL = generation, height
42= interface. (52 = 512e SAS, E6= 512e SATA, N6= 4kn SATA, 42 = 4Kn SAS)
0 = power Diable
5 = Encryption ( 1 = TCG, 4 = Secure Erase, 5 = TCG/FIPS)
What is the relation between WD ultrastar and HGST/Hitachi Ultrastar
What is the difference between WD Gold and WD Ultrastar drives, they are both Enterprise drives.
1. Ultrastar Is Available in SAS and SATA. Gold is available only in SATA
2. Ultastar can be ordred in 512e, 512n ( in lower caps) and 4Kn . Gold format is fixed and can't be changed ( 512n/512e)
3. Ultrastar Can be had in TCG, SE, FIPS encryptions unlike Gold.
