Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 SAS Hard Drive

SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) hard drives have been the preferred choice for server storage for years. The reason is simple: they are fast, dependable and cost-efficient.

How fast? Today’s featured SAS HDD, the 3.5-inch Seagate Cheetah 15K.7, runs at 15 000RPM, has the 6-GB/s SAS 2.0 interface for 200+ MBps read/write bandwidth and delivers an industry-leading 1.6-million-hour MTBF. This is the perfect fast high-capacity storage solution to data servers and Enterprise environments. 

With an annualized failure rate (AFR) of only 0.44%, the FIPS 140-2 validated SED (Self-Encrypting Drives) 600GB Cheetah 15K.7 model ST3600057SS has the industry’s highest reliability rating, making it – at R5 658 (available online now) – one of the world’s most cost-effective high-end storage solutions.
