Seagate is shipping its 3.5-inch Constellation ES drive, a 2TB drive featuring 6Gb SAS and designed specifically for multi-drive nearline storage environments

The Constellation ES drive family for 7200-RPM enterprise environments enables efficient storage with capacities of 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. It supports up to 76TB per square foot and provides 6Gb/s SAS or SATA 3Gb/s performance.

Seagate said that the new drive incorporates PowerChoice optimised power and cooling technology, and comes with a government-grade security option.

Carla Kennedy, vice president of enterprise product line management at Seagate, said: “Seagate’s leadership in technology development, volume manufacturing and supply chain execution has resulted in an exemplary next-generation nearline solution. The Constellation ES drive tackles the concerns of shrinking IT budgets, floor space constraints and energy consumption, efficiently and cost-effectively.”
