Ultrastar SATA Series SSD

Purpose-Built for Cloud, Boot and Edge


Optimized for Read-Intensive Workloads in the Cloud and at the Edge

Cloud and Software-defined Storage environments require elastic infrastructure to be able to adapt to continuously changing workload and data requirements. Delivering performance and capacity at the right time, while staying on budget, is essential to success. Our purpose-built Ultrastar DC SA210 drives deliver price/performance to edge servers and read-intense CDNs, and are also well-suited for use as boot drives. With capacities as low as 120GB up to 1.92TB, you can choose the right capacity point for your operating system and logging requirements.

One megabyte (MB) is equal to one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000MB (one billion bytes), and one terabyte (TB) is equal to 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to storage capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting, system software, and other factors.


Endurance rating based on DW/D using 4KiB random write workload over 5 years.


1MiB=1,048,576 bytes or 220, 1KiB= 1,024 bytes or 210


Average Write Latency at 4KiB QD=1


MTBF and AFR targets are based on a sample population and are estimated by statistical measurement and acceleration algorithms under median operating conditions. MTBF and AFR rating do not predict an individual drive’s reliability and do not constitute a warranty.


The warranty for the product will expire on the earlier of (i) the date when the flash media has reached one-percent (1%) of its remaining life or (ii) the expiration of the time period associated with the Product.
