Enterprise Performance V.6 Specifications




The SAS interface onboard the Enterprise Performance 10K HDD V.6 (Savvio 10K.6) provides enterprise class features along with an enhanced instruction set that eases management of the drive. The drive comes in a 2.5" form factor with a 15mm Z-height.


The V.6 delivers sustained speeds of 204MB/s, an average latency of 2.9ms, and 64MB of segmented cache. The drive provides a prefetch (read look-ahead) and multi-segmented cache control algorithms that in many cases can enhance system performance. When the Prefetch feature is enabled, data in contiguous logical blocks on the disk immediately beyond that which was requested by a Read command are retrieved and stored in the buffer for immediate transfer from the buffer to the host on subsequent read commands that request those logical blocks.


T10-compliant Seagate PowerChoice technology enables users to tailor systems for optimal performance and power usage.


The V.6 implements a temperature warning system that signals the host if the temperature exceeds a value that would threaten the integrity of the drive. The V.6 also saves a S.M.A.R.T. data frame on the drive when it passes the threshold.


The 900 GB drive features three platters with six heads and an areal density of 538Gbit/sq. This is a jump from the 508Gbit/sq density offered from the previous generation 10K.5. The ECC maximum burst correction length is 530 bits, and the logical block sizes are user-configurable at 512, 520, 524, or 528 bytes per logical block.


The V.6 sports an AFR (Annualized Failure Rate) of 0.44%, an MTBF of 2,000,000 hours and a five year warranty. The rated MTBF is based upon a sustained case temperature of 122F (50C), and the maximum allowable drive case temperature is 140F (60C).
