Maximize Data Storage ROI with Western Digital Ultrastar-based Storage Systems

We know that when you plan your data centers and storage environments, total cost of ownership (TCO) is a key consideration point. That’s why Thinkmate offers storage servers featuring Western Digital’s Ultrastar series of enterprise hard drives.

Western Digital Ultrastar based servers help lower your TCO by providing reliable, high-density data storage for HPC, AI, cloud, data warehousing, and many other uses. With up to 18TB per drive, Ultrastar hard drives can provide up to 648TB in a single Thinkmate storage server, and up to 1.6PB in a single Thinkmate JBOD Expansion Chassis.

That added density can make a huge difference in the data center. For example, using 18TB HDDs instead of 14TB HDDs can require 22% fewer racks while consuming 21% less power per TB at idle. That means lower deployments costs but also, over time, it leads to major savings in operational costs.

Western Digital Ultrastar hard drives provide a variety of storage options in Thinkmate storage systems:

  • Capacities from 1TB to 18TB in a 3.5” form factor
  • SAS or SATA interface options
  • Up to 7,500 RPM
  • Up to 269MB/s sustained data rate
  • 2.5 million hours MTBF

Thinkmate offers a wide range of storage system types and form factors to support any use case. From 1U cloud servers to 5U, 106 drive bay JBODs for maximum capacity. Whether you’re looking to support an HPC or AI cluster, build out a private cloud, or build a storage array for data warehousing, Thinkmate has the right Western Digital storage solution for you.
