Hitachi is first to introduce a 500 GB, 5400 RPM 2.5-inch hard drive with enhanced availability. Travelstar E5K500 uses a three disk design to deliver up to 500 GB of capacity. This new drive is extremely energy efficient, with a power profile nearly identical to its 2 disk predecessor, the Travelstar E5K250. Designed to address the needs for high capacity storage in non stop applications, the E5K500 is well suited for blade servers and other multi drive environments. Travelstar E5K500 delivers the features, design innovations and technologies to address around-the-clock access to data in lower transaction environments. Travelstar E5K500 is Hitachi's fourth generation mobile drive to use perpendicular magnetic recording technology to deliver breakthrough capacity and reliability. Multi-drive or rack systems present an additional challenge for drive stability and performance. These systems can inadvertently experience vibrations within the system enclosure. To mitigate any adverse impact on system performance, the Travelstar E5K500 is the first mobile drive to feature Hitachi patented Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) technology. RVS serves as an (early warning) system for the drive, enabling it to sense a possible disturbance in advance and take the necessary steps to stabilize the drive head and maintain performance. Hitachi employs specific firmware enhancements to allow the Travelstar E5K500 to deliver 24 x 7 access to data. These models broaden the product line to make it more suitable for data intensive applications requiring round-the-clock operation. Travelstar E5K500 provides leadership capacity, performance, durability and power utilization on a proven platform for quality and reliability. The E5K500 can support the stringent demands of (always-on) applications in lower transaction environments.
