Seagate Unveils 400GB 10K-rpm Cheetah NS Hard Drive
Seagate Technology announced the Cheetah NS hard drive, developed for mission-critical enterprise network storage applications where the highest available storage capacity and the lowest power consumption are required.
Benefits of the novelty:
- The Cheetah NS provides high capacity for mission-critical network storage environments. Using the perpendicular recording technology, the Cheetah NS enables 33% more storage per drive to deliver up to 400GBs.
- With a seek time of 3.9 ms, and operating at 10K-rpm, random performance is increased by 10% while sequential performance is improved by as much as 23%. The Cheetah NS is also available with the 3Gbps Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or 4Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces.
- PowerTrim Energy Efficiency - Seagate's PowerTrim technology is a set of proprietary features that together reduce the Cheetah NS drive's overall power consumption in the enterprise. Using PowerTrim technology, the Cheetah NS consumes just 8W.
The Cheetah NS is rated with a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 1.4 million hours and is backed by Seagate's five-year warranty. Seagate is now shipping the Cheetah NS to leading OEM customers. The Cheetah NS is expected to be available to the worldwide distribution channel during the third quarter of 2007.
