The compact 10-bay array is a good choice for add-on JBOD PCI RAID server storage applications in space-constrained data centers. The InfoStation, which shipped at the end of August, is the first RAID array Ive seen that uses Seagate Technologys Savvio small-form-factor Ultra320 hard drives. The Savvio Ultra320 high-density drives support the SCSI and Fibre Channel interfaces.
The Savvio line has capacities of only 36.7GB and 73.4GB, but the drives 2.5-inch form factor means storage vendors can pack high storage density into compact arrays, as demonstrated by StorCases InfoStation.
