Seagate Names its Future Small Enterprise Drive Line
Seagate Technology this week named its forthcoming 2.5-inch hard drive line that will support enterprise-class performance and interfaces. According to marketing materials seen by eWEEK.com, its new name will be "Savvio."Back in the spring, Seagate Technology LLC introduced its "Enterprise Disc Drive," a new 2.5-inch hard disk format with enterprise-class performance and interfaces. According to marketing materials seen by eWEEK.com, the company will brand the forthcoming drive as "Savvio." The drive will ship in both 36.7GB and 73.4GB capacities, according to Seagates materials. The product family has not yet been added to the companys Web site. As unique as the Savvio moniker is, the name has been used before by now-defunct Savvio.com, an online travel site born in the dot-com boom of 2000 and that died shortly thereafter in the first week of 2001.
Seagate, meanwhile, has higher hopes for its own enterprise drive. Even though its called a 2.5-inch drive, Savvio will measure 15mm high, thicker than most notebook drives. The companys materials did not indicate how much cache memory would be included in each drive.
