Fujitsu today announced the de
The MBD2 RC series will be released in the first quarter of 2009 calendar year, and the MBE2 RC series will be available in the second quarter.
Compared to current 2.5" models, the new series improve performance by 60% in terms of internal transfer speeds. They are also more environmentally friendly, with halogen-free design and power efficiency. Moreover, the series boast perpendicular magnetic recording, which enables increased recording density and allows the MBD2 series to have capacities up to 300 GB.
The new models are suited to a range of applications, from servers to high-capacity storage systems.
Both series use perpendicular magnetic recording, which enables capacities up to 300 GB in the MBD2 RC series and up to 147 GB in the MBE2 RC series. The new models thus reduce space requirements while providing higher storage capacities.
In addition, the new series improve maximum internal transfer rates by 60% over current 2.5" models. By supporting the latest SAS-2 interface specification, they also offer faster data-transfer rates (600 MB/s) between the drive and the host.
Environmental benefits include the low power consumption of 3.4 W at idle for the MBD2 RC series and 4.1 W for the MBE2 RC series.
