Drives target speed, capacity and displacement

Seagate claims its new drive is the fastest available. Meanwhile ProStor announced a new high-capacity removable disk drive as a replacement for tape media for workstations and servers in small and midsize markets.

The Seagate Savvio 15K drive is a 15,000rpm serial attached SCSI drive in a 2.5 inch enclosure. It is designed for inclusion in both rack-mounted servers and blade servers.

The Savvio drive is 70 percent smaller than other 15K drives on the market and has 30 percent less power consumption, the company says.. It has a Mean Time Between Failure (MBFT) of 1.6 million hours. The Savvio 15K drives will ship in 36G and 73GB capacities and will be first to appear in HP ProLiant servers. Both IBM and Sun are also qualifying the drives.

ProStor Systems added higher-capacity cartridges to its portfolio of removable disk systems. The new cartridges have a capacity of 160GB, a 33 percent increase over previous drives. RDX media is available in 40G, 80G, 120G and 160GB capacities and allow users to substitute them for tape media. The new 160Gbyte RDX cartridges are backward and forward compatible with all RDX drives.

The RDX cartridges and drives can back up more than 125GB of data per hour and archive data for as long as ten years. Both Imation and Tandberg manufacture RDX drives.
