Fast and then some
Seagate® Savvio® 10K.3 and Savvio 10K.3 FDE1 drives offer the best combination of enterprise performance and power efficiency, with up to 300-GB capacity for mainstream servers and external storage arrays. This third-generation Savvio drive gives you more than twice the number of drives over 3.5-inch products within the same rack configuration, and delivers a staggering 60 percent system-level performance increase. The Savvio 10K.3 and Savvio 10K.3 FDE drives are the world’s first to operate at 6-Gb/s transfer rates, which is part of the new SAS 2.0 feature set. SAS 2.0 was developed to provide additional signal and data integrity features to enable SAS to be ideally suited for use in highend network storage applications.
Lower power requirements = lower costs
The 2.5-inch footprint enables the lowest power profile of any tier-1 mission-critical drive. The Savvio 10K.3 drive with PowerTrim technology uses 67 percent less power than a 3.5-inch 15K drive. The lower power footprint of 2.5-inch drives enables lower cooling costs. The 2.5-inch drive advantages translate into greater overall value and reduced total cost of ownership to IT organizations and administrators who want to optimize their data center power and performance efficiency.
Government-grade security available
Delivering on the Seagate commitment to add security features throughout its product portfolio, the Savvio 10K.3 FDE drive is offered with selfencrypting FDE technology and will provide government-grade data-at-rest protection through its entire life cycle.
