Seagate Unveils Cheetah

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX) today announced the Cheetah NS hard drive, developed for mission-critical enterprise network storage applications where the highest available storage capacity and the lowest power consumption are required. With its combination of features that include Seagate's PowerTrim(TM) technology optimized for these environments, the Cheetah NS provides the lowest price-per-gigabyte and watts-per-gigabyte value for the enterprise.

Leveraged from the same platform as the 15K-rpm Cheetah 15K.5, the Cheetah NS is a new 10K-rpm hard drive that delivers best-in-class capacity, energy savings and performance when compared to standard 3.5-inch form factor 10K-rpm enterprise drives. The Cheetah NS and Cheetah 15K.5 drives provide IT professionals with a choice in optimizing their enterprise systems for capacity or performance. Choose the Cheetah 15K.5 for the highest IOPS-per-gigabyte transactional performance in its class, or the Cheetah NS for the best capacity and price-per-gigabyte available in mission-critical enterprise storage.

The Cheetah NS also features up to 33% more capacity at 400 gigabytes along with a 33% reduction in power and cooling requirements. This additional capacity and reduced cooling profile in the data center means that the Cheetah NS ultimately delivers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a wide range of mission-critical enterprise network storage applications.
