Designed for High Density and Flexibility
The Ultrastar Data60 hybrid storage platform is a key element of next-generation disaggregated storage and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems. The compact, efficient form factor provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations for balancing capacity, performance, and cost. The Ultrastar Data60 provides up to 1.2PB of raw storage using our 20TB SMR HDDs in a compact and efficient form factor. Western Digital HelioSeal® drives ensure cool running, quiet operation and high reliability. A highperformance data tier can be set up for demanding applications by using SSDs in up to 24 of the drive slots, enabling the ability to serve both fast data and big data from a single platform.
A flash data acceleration tier can be enabled to serve both fast data and big data applications from a single platform. The Ultrastar Data60 addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, storage OEMs, cloud service providers, as well as resellers/integrators requiring dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage.

Building on 50+ Years of Storage Design Experience
Conventional dense disk shelves frequently suffer from performance degradation due to induced vibration from adjacent drives. Traditional platforms also have cooling challenges as the cooling air passes over successive rows of drives, losing effectiveness as it gets heated up along the airflow path. Developing storage devices and platforms side-by-side, we address these challenges through Silicon to Systems Design, a set of technologies developed based on a holistic view of devices, platform, and their interactions. The first two of these innovative technologies are IsoVibe and ArcticFlow. IsoVibe reduces vibration-induced performance degradation, while ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling our five-year limited warranty on the entire platform.
Designed for the Enterprise and the Cloud
This platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, storage OEMs, cloud service providers and resellers/integrators that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage. The Ultrastar Data60 provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations to balance capacity, performance and cost.
IsoVibe Patented Vibration Isolation Technology
Precise cuts in the baseboard provide a suspension for the drives in the chassis, isolating them from transmitted vibration. The result is that consistent performance is maintained, even when all the drives are working hard.
ArcticFlow Innovative Thermal Zone Cooling Technology
By introducing cool air into the center of the chassis, drives operate at lower and more consistent temperatures than conventional systems. This results in lower fan speeds, reduced vibration, lower power consumption, quieter operation and ultimately higher reliability.
Western Digital Resource Manager
A GUI-based tool that enables real-time monitoring and management of the platform and provides a consolidated dashboard displaying the most critical information. Other views allow platform configuration, health monitoring and maintenance.
