NetApp X306A-R5, 108-00157 2TB SATA Hard Drive Technology

Recent measures such as data de-duplication and thin provisioning have not been able to stem the explosive petabyte (PB) growth requirements in cloud storage and data centers. Pervasive Internet computing with remotely stored email, pictures and social media, all being accessed from light-weight tablet and notebook computers, is changing consumer expectations. Ongoing worldwide government data retention regulations and security requirements are also driving up data center and private cloud storage needs. At the same time, tile space and megawatts remain at a premium, while in some highly built-out metropolitan areas both are at an absolute “no-growth” state. To meet these demands, the NetApp X306A-R5 delivers 50% more capacity in the same footprint and does so at a 32% reduction in watts/GB versus our prior generation NetApp X306A-R5 product.

NetApp X306A-R5 Tech Highlights

  • SATA 6Gb/s for configuration flexibility
  • Advanced Power Management optimizes power consumption
  • Largest 64MB cache buffer in the industry
  • Dual Stage Actuator (DSA) and Enhanced Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) for robust performance in multi-drive environments
  • Advanced Format SATA with 512-byte emulation (512e)

NetApp X306A-R5, 108-00157 2TB 7.2K 6Gbps SATA Hard Drive Features

With five Advanced Power Management modes, the X306A-R5 achieves a 59% reduction in watts during low RPM idle mode, and uses less than 2W during standby/sleep modes, freeing up precious headroom for growing enterprise needs.
