The Savvio 15K.3 drive enables Tier 1 applications to read and write both random and sequential data faster. Data centers can store and access important random data up to 10% faster and sequential data up to 21% faster over previous generations, enabling them to process more transactions within a given time period. Providing up to 300 GB capacity, the Seagate Savvio 15K.3 drive stores twice the amount of data without increasing the total number hard drives used. This helps data centers keep up with the growth of data while improving storage efficiency. The Savvio 15K.3 drive provides protection information and self-encrypting drive options to help companies achieve corporate and/or government security compliance goals. The drive helps protect data from inadvertent change from the moment of creation until the end of life, and from exposure if the device is lost, stolen or retired.
