Designed for High Density and Flexibility

The Western Digital Ultrastar Serv60+8 has dual high-performance Intel® Xeon Scalable Processor-based CPUs to deliver the performance to manage demanding workloads in Software-Defned Storage (SDS) environments. With over 780TB1 in the enclosure, it delivers high density (up to 195TB per rack unit). With a choice of CPUs, memory and drives, it provides the flexibility to balance performance with cost. Western Digital HelioSeal® HDDs ensure cool running, quiet operation and high reliability and the SSDs provide a fast data tier for additional performance.

Building on Western Digital’s 40-plus Years of HDD Design Experience

Developing storage devices and platforms side-by-side, enables the benefts of vertical innovation. The frst of these patented innovative technologies are IsoVibe and ArcticFlow. IsoVibe reduces performance degradation in traditional platforms due to induced vibration from busy adjacent drives. ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues in a conventional dense chassis by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both these technologies contribute to long-term reliability enabling a fve-year limited warranty on the entire platform.

Designed for Big Data and Software-Defned Storage

The new, high-capacity storage server addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, OEMs, Cloud Service Providers and resellers/integrators that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage with compute included.

isovibe     IsoVibe Patented Vibration Isolation Technology

Precise cuts in the baseboard provide a suspension for the drives in the chassis, isolatingthem from transmitted vibration. The result is that consistent performance is maintained, even when all the drives are working hard. 
 ArticFlow   ArcticFlow Patented 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.
