Seagate Announces Cheetah Drives With Perpendicular Recording
Seagate’s Cheetah drives are some of the fastest in the industry, offering rotational speeds of 15,000 RPMs coupled with low seek times. However, it doesn’t take a genius to recognize that standard desktop drives long ago surpassed enterprise offerings in capacity if not speed. To help bridge the gap, Seagate has applied the principle of Perpendicular Recording to their Cheetah 15K.5 series drives, bumping the maximum capacity from 146GB to 300GB. With a June 2006 ship date, the 15K.5 is being offered in Fibre Channel and SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) versions only, so non-enterprise users need not apply. However, desktop users can fall back on the blazingly fast Raptor drives to fix their need for speed.
Pricing is not currently available, but is sure to be right in line with typical enterprise-oriented products (really expensive that is).
