Seagate Intros Savvio 10K.3

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- To meet the growing demand for higher-capacity, more efficient enterprise storage systems, Seagate (NYSE:STX) today introduced the Savvio(R) 10K.3 hard drive -- the world's highest-capacity, small form factor 2.5-inch enterprise hard drive built for the demands of enterprise servers and storage arrays. This latest generation of 2.5-inch drive offers 70% lower power and greater than 60% performance density over traditional 3.5-inch drives. As the only 10K-rpm 2.5-inch enterprise design backed by two prior generations of field-proven reliability, the Savvio 10K.3 drive leads the industry with 300GB of capacity, reliability of 1.6 million hours MTBF, and an advanced SAS 2.0 (6Gb/sec data rate) interface. Seagate's Savvio 10K.3 drive is also the industry's first 2.5-inch self-encrypting enterprise drive with government-grade Full Disk Encryption (FDE) data protection.

"The combination of higher capacity and 6Gb SAS on an enterprise-class small form factor disk drive, like the Savvio 10K.3 drive, continues to entice the industry to move from 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch based solutions for use in enterprise storage systems and arrays," said Dave Reinsel, vice president of Storage Research at IDC. "IDC predicts that shipments of small form factor enterprise drives into enterprise solutions will outnumber 3.5-inch enterprise drive shipments by 2010."
