Seagate Savvio 2.5-inch Server Hard Drives Accepted by Industry

Seagate announced that its Savvio 2.5-inch small form factor enterprise hard drives have achieved unprecedented levels of adoption among leading system suppliers and solution builders. The rapid adoption rate of this innovative solution marks a new trend in the enterprise as a shift from the 3.5-inch to the 2.5-inch form factor accelerates. Whether in blade servers, compact 1U, 2U, or larger 3U or 4U servers, or storage arrays, Savvio drives enable cooler-running systems that deliver higher performance and greater reliability than those based on conventional 3.5-inch 10K-rpm enterprise drives.

Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX - News), today announced that its ground-breaking Savvio 2.5-inch small form factor enterprise hard drives have achieved unprecedented levels of adoption among leading system suppliers and solution builders. The rapid adoption rate of this innovative solution marks a new trend in the enterprise as a shift from the 3.5-inch to the 2.5-inch form factor accelerates.
 
"Enterprise storage customers are juggling demands for space and power in addition to improved performance and cooling efficiencies in data centers," according to John Rydning, IDC's research manager for hard disk drives. "A growing number of customers are beginning to realize the benefits of a smaller 2.5-inch form factor enterprise hard disc drive as a solution to these datacenter challenges."

Savvio Maximizes Efficiency

Key to building more flexible and competitive systems, Savvio drives are fast becoming the hard drive of choice for major system suppliers and channel solution builders. Leading system suppliers including HP, IBM, and Sun are boosting their systems' efficiency with storage powered by Savvio drives. HP has standardized its server product line to this 2.5-inch form factor across the vast majority of its new ProLiant, Integrity & BladeSystem offerings with compatibility in Storageworks MSA external storage. IBM offers the 2.5-inch drive in all of its BladeCenter® servers and includes Savvio drives in the majority of its newest System x(TM) servers. Sun has adopted 2.5-inch enterprise class drives across its entire server portfolio, from entry level, to data center, to blade server product lines.

Whether in blade servers, compact 1U, 2U, or larger 3U or 4U servers, or storage arrays, Savvio drives are spearheading a new era of high-density enterprise storage. Savvio drives enable cooler-running systems that deliver higher performance and greater reliability than those based on conventional 3.5-inch 10K-rpm enterprise drives.

"The demand for our new ProLiant G5 Servers and BladeSystem C-Class introduced this year based on the SFF Serial Attached SCSI drives has been tremendous," said Paul Perez, vice president of Storage, Networking and Infrastructure, at Hewlett-Packard. "Customers clearly understand the performance & efficiency value propositions for the new SFF Serial Attached SCSI system; adoption has surpassed our most aggressive expectations."

"In today's space constrained, power hungry datacenters, clients are constantly battling how to pack in more computing power without blowing the energy budget," said Alex Yost, director of Product Management for System x, IBM. "IBM's adoption of the Savvio 2.5-inch drives in all our BladeCenter technologies and in a majority of our System x server line is a direct result of the drives' small form factor and energy-efficiency benefits. It is one of many components that enable our servers to provide enterprise class, energy-smart performance for businesses large and small."
