The backbone of your next-generation disaggregated software defined storage (SDS) architecture.
An essential building block for any large storage deployment, Western Digital has unveiled an innovative new series of enterprise storage systems. Ideal for cloud providers, large enterprises, and storage OEMs, WD JBODs offer the flexibility to specify the combination of SSD and HDD to perfectly balance capacity, performance, and cost. Maximum value is achieved, as the renowned performance and longevity of Western Digital Ultrastar drives can be fully realized in these dense, flexible, reliable, and easily serviceable storage platforms.
These systems pack an incredible amount of storage into just four rack units. The Ultrastar Data102 delivers up to a whopping 1.4 PB of raw capacity, while the Ultrastar Data60 offers up to 840 TB of raw capacity. HelioSeal® helium filled WD server HDDs protect your investment with the coolest, quietest, most reliable operation.
The platform is configurable for a wide variety of workloads. If maximum data availability is paramount, dual-port SAS will ensure maximum performance. If budget is more of a factor, single-port SATA balances performance with cost.
For the most demanding environments, a high-performance data acceleration tier can be set up by putting SSDs in up to 24 drive slots. This allows for fine tuning of performance vs. capacity, combining fast data and big data in a single Western Digital JBOD.
The enterprise class 2U24 Flash Storage Platform is designed without compromise, taking on the most challenging enterprise storage projects requiring near-instantaneous data deliverability. This all-flash platform ensures high IOPS and low latency with capacities up to 184 TB from 24 2.5” SSDs. Scalability is prioritized, allowing for initial configurations with as few as 12 flash modules. SSDs can be added as needed at the front panel without even pulling the chassis from the rack.
WD has implemented creative solutions to common issues that can arise in densely packed disk shelves. Drive longevity and performance can be compromised by induced vibration from adjacent hard drives. Extreme temperatures arising from the lack of airflow in densely packed hard drive arrays can also create challenges.
Every Western Digital RAID storage solution we sell is backed by over twenty years of excellence in storage solution design. Our storage engineering team puts every system through a stringent series of tests before to ensure flawless performance and compatibility.
