Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"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."
