Toshiba releases 10 000 RPM drives
Toshiba’s Storage Products Business Unit announced on Wednesday a new line of 10,000 RPM, 2.5-inch 6 Gb/s SAS interface hard drives that offer enterprise-class performance.
"The AL13SE Series provides enterprise customers with capacities up to 900GB that support a broad range of enterprise applications," said Joel Hagberg, vice president of marketing at Toshiba’s Storage Products Business Unit. "The increased performance and reliability of the AL13SE reflect our collaboration with our key partners to deliver small form-factor hard disk drives that address market requirements for mission-critical storage."
According to the Toshiba, the AL13SE series is the first of Toshiba’s drives to employ a dual-stage head positioning actuator that provides additional performance gains, including a 32-percent increase in sustained transfer rate. The new HDD line also features an operating reliability rating of 2,000,000 power-on hours.
