Product Information of the Seagate ST8000AS0002

The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive is a hard disk drive with a storage capacity of 8 terabytes (TB). It is designed for use in data centers, cloud storage systems, and other high-capacity storage environments. This drive has several features that make it suitable for these environments, including a 5900 revolutions per minute (RPM) spindle speed, a Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface with a speed of 6 gigabits per second (Gbps), and a large 128MB buffer. In this article, we will take a closer look at the features of this SATA-6GBPS hard disk drive.

Storage Capacity

The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive has a storage capacity of 8TB 5.9K RPM. This means that it can store a huge amount of data, including files, documents, images, videos, and more. For comparison, 1 TB can hold approximately 200,000 photos, 250,000 songs, or 500 hours of high-definition video. With 8 TB of storage capacity, this hard disk drive can hold up to 1.6 million photos, 2 million songs, or 4,000 hours of high-definition video.

Spindle Speed

The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive has a spindle speed of 5900 revolutions per minute (RPM). Spindle speed is the rate at which the disk inside the hard drive rotates. A faster spindle speed generally means faster data transfer rates, but it also means more noise, heat, and power consumption. In a data center or other storage environment, spindle speed is an important consideration when selecting a hard disk drive. A slower spindle speed like the one in the Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive means lower power consumption and less heat generated.


The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive uses a Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface with a speed of 6 gigabits per second (Gbps). The SATA interface is a popular standard for connecting hard disk drives and solid-state drives (SSDs) to computers and other devices. The 6Gbps speed of the SATA interface means that data can be transferred at a rate of up to 750 megabytes per second (MB/s). This is faster than the previous SATA standard, which had a speed of 3Gbps.


The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive has a large 128MB buffer. A buffer is a temporary storage area that holds data while it is being transferred between the hard disk drive and the computer or other device. A larger buffer generally means faster data transfer rates, because more data can be transferred at once. The 128MB buffer in the Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive is larger than the buffers in many other hard disk drives, which typically have buffers of 32MB or 64MB.

Form Factor

The Seagate ST8000AS0002 Archive has a 3.5-inch large form factor (LFF). The form factor refers to the physical size and shape of a hard disk drive. There are two main form factors for hard disk drives: 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch. The larger 3.5-inch form factor is generally used in desktop computers, servers, and other devices that have plenty of room for a large hard drive. The smaller 2.5-inch form factor is typically used in laptops, portable devices, and other devices that require a smaller hard drive.
