| Storage News | Posted: Nov 3, 2008 12:44 am

Seagate has made a big step forward in the enterprise storage market today, launching the world's fastest hard drive under its Savvio series.

 

The Savvio 15K.2 uses a SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) 2.0 interface and runs at a spindle speed of 15,000RPM. Whilst being incredibly fast, the inclusion of new proprietory power saving technologies from Seagate are used to make the 2.5-inch 15K.2 an extremely efficient drive that uses up to 70% less power than competing 3.5-inch models.

 

Capacities come in at 146 and 73GB and with the help of the SAS 2.0 interface's 6Gb/s throughput on tap, these drives are highly suited to RAID configurations.
