HITACHI CLAIM DISK SALES INCREASE OF 33%

By CBR Staff Writer

Hitachi Ltd claims that sales of its large-capacity disk drives in the second half of its fiscal year to March 31 increased by 33% to 7,700 units, as a result of the delays that held up IBM’s 3390, which slipped to December 1989; Hitachi is looking for its computer division to grow 20% this year to shoot through the 1 trillion yen – $6,500m – mark for the first time; Hitachi was particularly successful with the 15Gb H-6586-K, launched in fiscal 1989, and subsequent introduction of the low-priced H-6585 10Gb version; both IBM and Fujitsu Ltd are expected in Japan to announce new drives in the near future – outside Japan, no-one knows when to expect IBM’s 5.25 arrays any more – making for even more competition in this market; Fujitsu’s 30Gb F6427H is due out in December this year, and orders for the thing were accepted from February.
