New Western Digital 2.5-inch, Hard Drives Spin at 10,000 RPM


WD announced today the WD VelociRaptor 10,000 RPM enterprise SATA hard drives in an enterprise-class 2.5-inch form factor for blade servers and 1U and 2U rack servers.

The newest WD VelociRaptor hard drive is built for business-critical applications with enterprise-class mechanics and packs up to 300 GB of capacity into the enterprise small form factor bays, while consuming 35 percent less power than the previous-generation WD Raptor drive. The drive is also rated at 1.4 million hours MTBF.

Features of the new WD VelociRaptor hard drives include a speed of 10,000 RPM, SATA 3 Gb/s interface and a 16 MB of cache. The Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) technology optimizes performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis while the NoTouch ramp load technology does not allow the recording head never touch the disk media.

WD VelociRaptor 2.5-inch hard drives (model WD3000BLFS) is under evaluation with OEM customers and will be available through select commercial distributors by the end of the month.
