The new Cheetah 15K.5 enterprise disc drive employs innovative perpendicular recording technology to set new standards for storage costeffectiveness. While doubling available capacity to 300GB, the Cheetah 15K.5 also delivers 36 percent higher sequential performance. This enables enterprises to meet their throughput and capacity requirements with fewer drives, significantly reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). Seagate® designed the Cheetah 15K.5 for maximum reliability in demanding enterprise applications, including a nonrecoverable error rate that's been improved by a factor of 10. Cheetah 15K.5 incorporates such Seagate-exclusive features as IRAW (Idle Read After Write), enhanced ECC (Error Correction Code) and BMS (Background Media Scan) to safeguard data integrity in the most rigorous environments.
