Fastest and greenest HDD invented by Seagate

Fastest and greenest HDD invented by Seagate  According to Seagate, its new and latest Savvio 15K.2 HDD is the world's greenest and fastest drive.

The latest 15K-rmp drive has been designed for the mission critical 2.5in applications which demand high reliability and performance but low power consumption, and the drive would be soon added to the firm's Savvio family of server and enterprise storage drives.  

The Savvio 15K.2 HDD that has a SAS 2.0 interface running at 6Gbit/s, would be offered in two capacities for servers, 146GB and 73GB.

"The hard drives are ideal for RAID configurations, and ultimately provide up to 115 per cent greater system level performance when compared to systems based on 3.5 server-class drives," reported Seagate.

Sherman Black, Seagate Technology Core Products Group marketing and strategy senior vice president said, "Server and storage array requirements in the enterprise today are especially focused on lowering power and cooling costs, satisfying growing application performance needs and meeting government and industry compliance regulations."

He further added, "The Savvio 15K.2 drive and our Unified Storage architecture, address these needs head-on by providing IT departments with a best-in-class foundation that reduces storage complexity and costs, and provides peace of mind." It has been learnt that the drive will start shipping by December.
