Seagate Savvio 15K.2 Hard DriveSeagate’s Savvio 15K.2 second generation, 2.5-inch hard drive claims to be the fastest and greenest mechanical disk drive in the world, with the highest performance and reliability of any HDD on the market today.  The 15,000 RPM drive also features a self-encrypting option that helps protect data from being stolen or hacked, while maintaining minimal power requirements with Seagate’s onboard PowerTrim(TM) technology (70% better power efficiency than comparable 3.5-inch 15,000 RPM drives).  Power consumption is a major factor for server farms that run hundreds of hard drives since any decrease in power consumption can make a significant impact on the monthly power bill.  146GB and 73GB versions are available.  Both variations use the same SAS 2.0 6Gb/s speed interface, which offers 100% faster maximum data throughput and higher signal strength from the previous interface revision.  The new interface makes the drive particularly well-suited for RAID configurations, which can yield as much as a 115% improvement for system-level performance.  The Seagate Savvio 15K.2 will begin shipping in December, 2008.

  1. 146GB not big enough. Period. End.

    In fact, until 10K.3, VelociRaptor was the only 300GB 2.5″ in town.

    Sad to see the mighty seagate producing boring products.

    They call these “green,” yet its far greener to stripe the crap out of 1.0TB disks if you need to get to a multi-TB volume size. 7 of these little disks = 1 1TB disk.

    Crap. Boring. Make a 300GB version and I’ll start to look. 150GB is already obsolete.
