A Leap on Cost-Effectiveness by Adopting Larger Capacity Drives on Storage Platforms

June  08 , 2021

Taipei City, Taiwan – June 8, 2021 - QSAN Technology Inc., a global leading brand in storage platforms, introduces the solution to storage density enhancement by supporting next-generation hard drives.

Over the past year, hard drive manufacturers such as Western Digital, Seagate, and Toshiba launched large-capacity drives one after another, marking a new milestone in drive capacity. Achieving 18TB of storage space on a single drive, these latest products benefit enterprise of all sizes in terms of cost-effectiveness.

Applying Total Cost Ownership (TCO) model to storage provides business guidance for understanding how drive capacity affects price-performance ratio. According to the model, capital expenditures and operational expenditures together contribute to the cost of devices. The consistent operational expenditure on disks of all sizes reveals that adopting large-capacity drives significantly lowers TCO per TB of storage.

QSAN has been testifying the compatibility between the latest drives and our own products. All QSAN storage support the mentioned 18TB and even larger drives, while offering on-demand upgrade prospects in terms of disk capacity. For allowing users to enlarge the space of existing systems, QSAN platforms set no capacity limit for hard drive support. In other words, further upgrade in the future would simply require physical hard drives addition or replacement.

“We aim for providing our customers storage devices with high scalability. In the initial state of deployment, it requires few as only one drive to start. By gradually enlarging storage space, enterprises could resolve the challenges during the process of data growth.”
said Phil Tai, Product Management Director of QSAN.

Hard drive providers are planning to raise the capacity to 24TB in the near future. Applying large-capacity disks on QSAN devices reduces cost for ownership of each TB and therefore improves agility for diverse application scenarios. In the age of data explosion, we stay forward-looking on the way of offering reliable solutions to storage.
