Enhance Technology (http://www.enhance-tech.com), a data storage
designer and manufacturer, has announced full support on the latest
Hitachi Ultrastar 2TB 7200RPM hard disks (HDDs) to enhance the
performance of its storage systems and populated storage solutions.
Storage capacities are now increased to 16TB on the 8-disk desktop &
rackmount storage arrays and as much as 32TB on its flagship 16-disk
UltraStor Professional Storage Systems, which is expandable to 160TB
through SAS storage expansion. Enhance Technology was among the first
group of technology partners to receive the new Hitachi 2TB HDDs when
they were released.
Based on the laboratory test results, the new Hitachi 2TB HDDs tested
with Enhance’s JBOD and RAID storage systems yielded an impressive
20% read/write performance increment, the company says It
purportedly reduces the power consumption for the same capacity with
25% more storage spaces than 1.5TB HDDs.
