he Seagate Cheetah 15K.5 hard drive is the first to break the 100-MB/s sustained transfer rate barrier. These drives lead the industry in reliability, performance and value by delivering higher throughput with fewer drives than conventional 10K-RPM solutions. The Cheetah 15K.5 enterprise hard drive sets a new standard for storage cost effectiveness with an unprecedented blend of storage performance, capacity and reliability.
Key Features and Benefits - 16-MB cache. - Perpendicular recording technology for maximum capacity. - Up to 125-MB/s sustained transfer rate. - 30 percent more IOPS than 10K 3.5-inch drives. - Reduced RAID rebuild times. - Highest reliability rating in the industry. - Lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Applications - Workstations. - Midrange and high-end servers. - Direct attached (JBOD/RAID) storage. - Storage area networks (SAN). - Network attached storage (NAS). - High-performance computing (scientific/technical data). - Data streaming, mining, visualization and analysis. - Online transaction processing (OLTP). - Collaboration (groupware, email, e-learning, messaging).
