    Seagate Technology today announced its second generation Savvio 10K.2 2.5-inch 10,000RPM enterprise hard drives. Savvio drives consume less power than equivalent 3.5-inch drives - 5.7W for 143GB, 5.4 for 73GB at idle - thus reducing system temperatures while the smaller size enables more airflow to cool processors. Smaller platters ensure faster seek times (3.8/4.4ms), while the compact chassis enables more drives per system to maximize IOPS/U performance. Savvio drives also make room for additional memory modules and processors. The new drives are available with SAS, SCSI and fiber channel interfaces. Seagate claims that its Savvio 10K.2 drives have an average failure rate of only 0.55%, even when running 24/7, making it the most reliable disk drive in Seagate’s roster.
