"Seagate said today that it has begun to ship the fourth generation of its Savvio 10,000 RPM hard drives, which are used in high-performance servers where throughput and speed are a necessity.

"These 2.5-inch disks hold 450GB or 600GB, doubling the product's capacity. The largest capacity 2.5-inch, 10k RPM drives previously were 300GB. Also, Seagate (NYSE: STX) raised the life span of the drives, from 1.6 million hours Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) to more than 2 million hours MTBF.

"Savvio 10K.4, as the latest version is dubbed, also features Protection Information technology for drive self-encryption and to protect data integrity. It detects any data corruption in-flight between the host and the drive itself. The drive also comes with PowerChoice technology to reduce the power draw while idle."
