75% less power and 70% less space than 3.5″ drives
HP’s making the move to 300GB 2.5″ SAS drives. The Seagate-built drive is twice the capacity of previous 2.5″ SAS drives. HP began shipping the Savvio 10K 300GB SAS drive worldwide to resellers this week.
This is another step in the rapid enterprise storage form factor transition underway. 2.5″ is mainstream for datacenters starting now.
