I hope this is not a mistake in the 1TB drive spec’s from Seagate

Go have a look at the specs. Specifically at the read and write seek latencies.

latency of reads and writes

Everyone say it with me now …. oooooohhhhhhhhhh aaaaaaahhhhhhhh.

If this is the case, then 15kRPM FC/SCSI is pretty much over. These units come in SAS and SATA at these densities. JackRabbit will be quite happy.

  1. Yeah, it looked too good to be true. I guess no one will be tossing out those FC/SCSI 15k RPM units after all.

    It looks like they put their track to track seek time where the average seek time should be. Going to guess at a simple typo, but I did put in an email to some Seagate folks about that.

    The 1 TB SAS will be cool. Will be a bit more expensive, but I am guessing it will be worth it for some workloads.
