Seagate Introduces Fast Hard Drives With Perpendicular Recording Technology
Posted on 19-Apr-2006 11:30. | Tags Filed under: News.

Seagate Technology has announced its Cheetah 15K.5 hard drive, the latest generation of Seagate's flagship enterprise product line. The new Cheetah 15K.5 drive delivers fast performance with high reliability.

Available with up to 300 gigabytes capacity and 30% increased performance, the Cheetah 15K.5 hard drive enables a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a wide variety of enterprise applications from e-mail, Internet, and e-commerce, to business processing and decision support.

The Cheetah 15K.5 leveraged Seagate's R&D to create an enterprise hard drive with perpendicular recording. Perpendicular recording technology lets the Cheetah 15K.5 deliver twice the capacity of 15K drives currently available while providing a performance increase over previous generations by as large as 30%.

Seagate is now shipping the Cheetah 15K.5 to OEM Customers. The Cheetah 15K.5 will be launched to the Distribution Channel later this quarter.

The Cheetah 15K.5 is available in a choice of 3 Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), Ultra320 SCSI, and 4 Gb/sec Fibre Channel interfaces with capacities of 73, 147, and 300 gigabytes. It delivers an industry-leading Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) reliability rating of 1.4 million hours at full duty cycle.
