HP's new Savvio 15K has a limited energy appetite, takes up less space, and provides lighting-fast seektimes. Another factor in its favor when deciding on HDDs for servers is that Savvio has the best reliability ever: 1.6 million hour Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF).
Sherman Black, senior VP and general manager, Seagate Enterprise Compute Business: "Seagate is committed to delivering solutions that will meet the needs of today's demanding IT environment, and no product demonstrates this better than the Savvio 15K drive. The development of the 2.5-inch Enterprise form factor represented a new way of thinking. Now, with the added number of performance and capacity choices offered, many of the leading enterprise system makers are transitioning from 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch form factor enterprise solutions."
The Savvio 15K drive is found in HP ProLiant servers; Paul Perez, VP at Storage, Networks and Infrastructure, HP:
"The Seagate Savvio 15K drives running in HP ProLiant servers and storage devices delivered record-breaking benchmarks at nearly 50 percent lower cost- per-transaction. The performance, reliability and power consumption benefits of deploying 2.5-inch Small Form Factor 15K drives are clear, and HP continues to drive the industry transition to them as the principal storage platform inside the HP ProLiant and BladeSystem solutions."
