Fujitsu to Release New Line of Enterprise Hard Disk Drives

Fujitsu Limited yesterday announced the development of two new series in its line of 2.5" enterprise hard disk drives (HDDs), the 10,025-rpm MBD2 RC series and 15,000-rpm MBE2 RC series, both of which provide standard support for the 6Gb/s SAS interface. The MBD2 RC series will be released in the first quarter of 2009 calendar year, and the MBE2 RC series will be available in the second quarter.

Compared to current 2.5" models, the new series improve performance by 60% in terms of internal transfer speeds. They are also more environmentally friendly, with halogen-free design - a first for Fujitsu's enterprise HDDs - and industry-leading power efficiency. Moreover, the series boast perpendicular magnetic recording, which enables increased recording density and allows the MBD2 series to have capacities up to 300 GB, noteworthy for 2.5" HDDs. The new models are well-suited to a range of applications, from servers to high-capacity storage systems.

Environmental benefits include the low power consumption of 3.4 W at idle for the MBD2 RC series and 4.1 W for the MBE2 RC series. This represents an improvement of as much as 28% over current 2.5" models, and as much as 74% over current 3.5" models, contributing to lower energy costs for customers.
