HGST MegaScale DC 4000.B

Innovation to Support Low-workload Applications

The HGST MegaScale DC 4000.B is designed to meet the needs of the scale-out data center where low-power, high-capacity, cost-effective storage is essential. It runs at 5,700 RPM (officially dubbed CoolSpin), features 64 MB cache, and interfaces with host via SATA 6Gbps.

MegaScale DC addresses low application workloads that operate within 180TB per year. Typical low-workload applications include multi-drive replicated environments, disk-to-disk backup and restore snapshots, online archives, big data stores and long-term data retention that benefit from low-cost or energy usage.

Understanding Workload is Key

HGST offers a comprehensive product portfolio to address the different workloads within the data center so our customers can maximize their return. When selecting hard disk drive, it’s important to consider the application workload. Workload is defined as the amount of work stress the HDD can endure during normal operating conditions. To achieve high storage density, components within the hard drive chassis move with precision. This complex engineering requires that HDDs have an optimized design rated for a specific usage time and workload range. Our products have the highest reliability ratings for the rated workloads. To ensure optimal efficiency, it’s critical that data center managers make informed decisions when selecting the right storage design with the right specifications for the right application workload.

Use of MegaScale products in higher duty cycle environments will have a negative impact on reliability. MTBF target is based on a sample population and is estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms under median operating conditions. MTBF ratings are not intended to predict an individual drive’s reliability. MTBF does not constitute a warranty.

Minimizing Power Consumption

MegaScale DC drives leverage Advanced Power Management technology which offers five levels of granularity to help manage power consumption including: normal idle; unload idle; low RPM idle; standby; and sleep. The standby and sleep modes consume less than 1 watt, enabling archival applications to remain online and ready to respond, yet at eco-friendly power levels.

HGST Quality

HGST’s MegaScale DC extends the company’s longstanding tradition of performance and capacity leadership. The proven drive design enables high reliability and availability to customer data. HGST is dedicated to providing a complete portfolio of HDD/SSD solutions to satisfy today’s monumental computing needs.

Not a happy camper 1/5/2020 7:49:25 PM

Pros: None at the moment.

Cons: Received this hard-drive on 4/29/2019 and went to install it on 12/20/2019 and found it was already partitioned off in two partitions, one at 2 TB and the other at 1.?? TB can't remember exactly right now. Went to remove both partitions as I wanted it as a straight 4 terabyte or 3.whatever it partitions out as hard-drive to store movies but found the smaller partition cannot be removed by any partition software including Windows 7 Pro or AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional Edition 8.2 . Very disappointed in this hard=drive. GoHarddrive support was no help as they did not send me an RMA form or tell me exactly what needed to be done to RMA it. I am a builder and never had a problem removing a partition or wiping a drive before. This was for my own computer so I guess I will have to use it as is.

Overall Review: Would not recommend this product.

excellent hard drive 6/11/2019 7:40:51 AM

Pros: Big and quiet. When the first worked splendidly, I ordered a second. That came, but was defective (It screeched, and was not recognized by either windows or linux.). I emailed GoHardDrives about the problem, and they were more than helpful in that they responded immediately, picked up the return shipping cost, and sent me a replacement, which works wonderfully. I am delighted!

Cons: none so far - uefi formatting is painful. Fortunately Linux Mint can handle that.

Super deal on storage medium 5/2/2019 12:52:20 PM

Pros: 4 TB at a price anyone can afford these drives arrived within 2 days well packaged and exactly as described. A refurbished product normally offers you a 90-day warranty these come with one year. Popped it in and it was immediately recognized by my computer once initialized it was good to go no problems.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would recommend these drives to anyone on a budget or not they are a good deal for storage and backup.

Inexpensive 4T and it works 4/17/2019 9:52:42 AM

Pros: Price of course. 4TB for the sale price of 54 bucks is decent even if it is a refurb..
Painless install, initialization and format.
Speedy enough. Writes top out at 127\MBs and settle to around 100\MBs for large video files.
I like Enterprise class drives. When they are good they usually last for years.

Cons: S.M.A.R.T capabilities are disabled. I have no way (yet) of checking drive health.

Overall Review: Buying refurb is always a gamble. I'm using this only to store movies so if it fails it's not the end of the world. I just wouldn't use it to store important data.
