Improves Storage Efficiency
The Savvio® 10K.5 drive is the highest-capacity 2.5-inch, 10K drive and the first SFF drive platform to offer four capacity points on a single SFF platform. This drive enables OEMs, system builders and end users to improve storage efficiency by providing up to 900GB in a single drive, helping data centers manage more data without increasing the number of drives, all while increasing sustained data rates by 18% (over previous generation) and maintaining favorable power consumption rates. Seagate PowerChoice™ technology enables OEMs and data centers to tailor systems for performance and power consumption, enabling green IT initiatives. The 2.5-inch small form factor allows end-user enterprises to solve space constraints through higher-density storage.
Reduces Costs and Complexity
The Savvio 10K.5 drive reduces system complexity by standardizing on a common form factor, storage interface and encryption technology. This means fewer device types, form factors, interfaces and security technologies need to be deployed, inventoried and managed.
Enables Smoother Transitions
OEMs and data centers have the flexibility to maintain or upgrade capacity, transition from 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch form factors, and/or migrate from Fibre Channel to SAS drives in one or more steps. With four capacity points on the same drive platform, the Savvio 10K.5 drive enables easier support for current systems and optimized return on existing investments.
Protection Information and Self-Encrypting Drive options protect data from corruption during the storage process and from exposure should the device by lost, stolen, or retired—helping organizations meet compliance and data security objectives.
