Fujitsu Launches MHZ2-BK Drives

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced the release of its 2.5" hard disk drive (HDD) series line up that offers support for 24-hour non-stop operation with capacities up to 250GB. The new Fujitsu 2.5" MHZ2-BK 7200 RPM and the 2.5" MHZ2-BS 5400 RPM SATA series features enhanced performance for extended duty disk drive usage for business critical and industrial applications that require higher storage capacity.

"While it's self-evident that all HDDs get 'rested' when not being used (and are built to a 'good enough' duty cycle), it is equally true that there are many business-critical applications that do not offer any 'rest' time ... and cannot afford any downtime," commented Mark Peters, an analyst with the Enterprise Strategy Group. "Such extreme operating demands clearly require the very highest-duty-cycle disks designed specifically to support such 'always on' environments. Fujitsu's newly enhanced, extended duty hard disk drives are custom designed to address this market need for continuous operation, where a regular 'good enough' approach is simply not good enough."
