Part number 5502671
The Ultrastar 146 Z10 family of serverclass drives is the first of its class to incorporate our storage breakthrough technology - antiferromagneticallycoupled (AFC) media. Informally known as "pixie dust", this technology sandwiches a three-atom thick layer of ruthenium, a precious metal, between two magnetic layers on a disk. AFC technology provides greater stability of the recording media, enhancing reliability.
Drive Fitness Test enables drive selftesting and analysis - for more robust system management. To help ensure data protection, Hitachi Ultrastar drives include exclusive reporting tools, such as Predictive Failure Analysis (to signal potential drive problems) and Drive-TIP (to monitor the drive temperature and avoid malfunctions).
Hitachi Ultrastar drives provide high data throughput for data-intensive applications with a choice of 2 Gbit Fibre Channel and Ultra320 SCSI (backwardcompatible) interfaces. The Ultra320 SCSI adds greater speed, reduced overhead, improved diagnostic capabilities and data protection.
