Hitachi HDDsHitachi Global Storage Technologies has announced the 15,000rpm Ultrastar 15K300, 7,200rpm Ultrastar A7K1000, and the company's first small-form-factor (SFF) enterprise hard drive, the 10,000rpm Ultrastar C10K147. The hard drives target a broad range of enterprise storage systems, from mission-critical and lower duty cycle storage applications to server.

Accelerating transition to SFF
Developed specifically for the high-performance, low-power requirements of servers, the SFF Ultrastar C10K147A is expected to capitalise on and accelerate the increasing demand of cost, space and low-power considerations in data centres.

The Ultrastar hard drives are built upon reliable technology, leveraging the system architecture and electronics of their predecessors. The 15K300 is the next generation of the 15K147, which has been qualified at major enterprise storage OEMs. The Ultrastar A7K1000 represents the next generation of the Deskstar E7K500, which has become the hard drive for Enterprise SATA applications. It is set to continue that reliability standard with a targeted 1.2 million hours MTBF.

"The enterprise market segment is an important business for Hitachi. Our customers are providing the critical storage infrastructure that supports end-users' ability to create, store and share digital content," said Shinjiro Iwata, chief marketing officer, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. "Our 2007 product portfolio helps position Hitachi to further expand our enterprise segment participation and achieve our volume-growth targets."

To be delivered in the Q2 this year, Hitachi's enterprise "triple play" of hard drives meets the needs of three critical segments of the enterprise storage hierarchy. Built for mission-critical enterprise computing environments, Ultrastar 15K300 features 16MB data buffer; RVS; TFC; adaptive format and end-to-end data protection. The Ultrastar C10K147 is optimised for the power, performance requirements of servers and features 16MB data buffer; TFC; adaptive format and end-to-end data protection. Having high capacity, low cost per gigabyte for lower duty cycle enterprise environments, Ultrastar A7K1000 is built on perpendicular magnetic recording technology and features 32MB data buffer; improved RV functionality and Self Protection Throttling (SPT) technology.
