RapidSwitch Offers High Capacity 5TB and 6TB Hard Drives


Data Centre Storage Technology to Meet Enterprise Demand


RapidSwitch has become the first UK hosting company to offer the new range of high capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) coming onto the market to support the enterprise storage needs of customers.

The HDDs which come in 5TB and 6TB sizes are the latest development in hard disk storage, giving customers increased storage densities for their hosted platforms.

The range of high capacity HHDs available from RapidSwitch are the fastest on the market. They include the helium-filled Ultrastar He6 from Western Digital, which was the first 6TB model to be released, and the recently announced Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD v4 which is aimed at cloud-based data centres where near-line storage is king.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director for RapidSwitch, said: "We are providing the latest innovations in enterprise storage to our customers. Our new range of higher capacity hard disk drives means we can meet the workload requirements of enterprise business by providing drives with the highest capacity, greatest reliability and the capability to meet the most demanding of workloads."
