Fujitsu intros SAS HDDs

Fujitsu on Monday announced the launch of its 2.5-inch, 10,000RPM MBD2 RC- and 15,000RPM MBE2 RC-series of 6Gbps Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) enterprise hard disk drives. Compared to the previous-generation drives, capacity is doubled thanks to Fujitsu's use of perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology, which also reduced power consumption to class-leading levels, according to the company. As part of the company's Green Policy Innovation program, the drives in both ranges feature halogen-free construction and are RoHS-compliant.

The new drives are about 28 percent more energy efficient compared to their predecessors and as much as 74 percent better in terms of power consumption at idle compared to larger, 3.5-inch, 15,000RPM drives. Either is also 60 percent faster than the outgoing model, thanks to internal transfer rates of 6Gbps. The MBD2 RC is available in either a 147GB or 300GB capacity. They feature an SAS-2 interface which improves system performance and reduces cabling footprints, along with a 16MB buffer size.

The 15,000RPM MBE2 RC drives can be ordered with 73.5GB or 147GB capacities and the same SAS-2 interface and 16MB buffer as the MBD2 RC drives.
