The Seagate Cheetah 15K.6 drive has higher performance and lower power consumption
There’s been lots of talk in the blogs about how SSDs are the future for performance storage in the enterprise. Absolutely! But that future is years away for broad adoption.
15K drives now, SSDs later
Today, 15K disk drives are powering the performance servers out there. Glad to see Seagate is upping the ante on what these drives can do.
Seagate’s new Cheetah 15K.6 has 28% faster data transfers and uses 61% less power at idle. This is incremental, Moore’s Law-ish progress, just what is needed for transaction-strained servers and storage systems.
Hard to believe that performance15K drives now go up to 450GB!
Has anyone tested this drive yet?
