Seagate releases 2.5-inch Savvio 10K.4 HDD

Claims to achieve 2 million hour MTBF reliability rating

By CBR Staff Writer

Seagate said that it has started shipping high-capacity 2.5-inch hard disk drives, which it claims to double the capacity of its nearest competitor.

The new Savvio 10K.4 hard disk drive (HDD) achieves 2 million hours mean time between failure reliability rating and offers capacity of 650GB. It has 6Gb/s and 4Gb/s connection options.

According to Seagate, the new offering features Protection Information for protection of data-in-flight, a self-encrypting drive (SED) option for the protection of data-at-rest and PowerChoice that allows the hard drive to offer improved power savings during idle.

The combined features of the 10K.4 deliver greater overall value and can reduce the total cost of ownership to IT organisations and administrators. It serves as a storage building block by leveraging the enterprise 2.5-inch small form factor as its platform, the company claims.

John Rydning, research director for hard disk drives at IDC, said: “A transition to 2.5-inch enterprise-class HDDs by server and storage system OEMs is building momentum. There continues to be nearly insatiable demand for digital content accessed via numerous applications and devices, content that is increasingly delivered from storage systems equipped with high capacity enterprise-class HDDs such as Seagate’s Savvio 10K.4.”
