Ultrastar DC HC53014TB3.5-inch Helium PlatformEnterprise Hard Drive
- High Capacity – 14TB PMR HDD, drop-in ready for capacity workloads
- Low Power – 56% lower idle W/TB than 8TB Ultrastar air-filled drives
- More Reliable – Unbeaten MTBF rating for an HDD at 2.5M hours
The breadth and depth of big data is driving the universal need for higher capacities across a broad spectrum of applications and workloads. Laying the foundation for a worry-free data center, Western Digital delivers capacity to conquer the data explosion–the 14TB Ultrastar® DC HC530 hard drive. Built using HelioSeal technology, the industry’s only fifth-generation helium platform, Ultrastar DC HC530 is designed for public and private cloud environments where storage density, Watts/TB and $/TB are critical parameters for creating the most cost-efficient infrastructure. HelioSeal technology is key to achieving higher drive capacities, higher reliability ratings and extreme power efficiency for lower levels of total cost of ownership (TCO) for cloud and enterprise customers.

MODEL NUMBERS: For a complete list of available model numbers, visit the P/N Selector tab.
CAPACITY: One MB is equal to one million bytes, one GB is equal to one billion bytes and one TB equals 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to hard drive capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the hard drive, the computer’s operating system, and other factors.
RELIABILITY: MTBF/AFR - Specifications are based on a sample population and are estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms under typical operating conditions for this drive model. MTBF and AFR ratings do not predict an individual drive’s reliability and do not constitute a warranty.
SECTOR SIZE: Advanced Format drive means 4K (4096-byte) physical sectors.
DATA BUFFER: Portion of buffer capacity used for drive firmware.
TRANSFER RATE: MiB/s is 220 bytes, MB/s is 106 bytes.
SEEK TIME: Excludes command overhead.
OPERATING POWER: SATA models: 8KB Queue Depth = 1 @ 40 IOPS, SAS models: 4KB Queue Depth = 4 @ Max IOPS.
IDLE POWER: specification is based on use of Idle_A.
