2007-08-15 Fibrenetix certify new Hitachi one-terabyte hard drive

Bristol, UK - August 15, 2007 -- Fibrenetix, leading storage provider to the content creation, broadcast and delivery markets today announce certification of the world’s first one-terabyte hard drive from Hitachi. The Deskstar 7K1000 drive has been tested and certified to work with the entire Fibrenetix product range, starting with the unique 6 bay Qubex desktop RAID and ending with the E-Series rackmount 16 bay 3U RAID series.

 The Deskstar offers an unparalleled capacity and storage density. With 16x 1TB drives installed you get whopping 16 Terabytes of RAID protected storage (15TB RAID 5 and 14TB in RAID 6).

Jes Nagel, CEO Fibrenetix says, ¨Fibrenetix were fortunate to receive early test drives from Hitachi which has enabled us to test and certify them as soon as they became available in the market place.  The Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 hard drive delivers superior performance and reliability, as well as the highest capacity with the lowest amount of physical space needed.¨

 Nagel continues ¨The Deskstar 7K1000 hard drive is well-suited for high performance applications such as post production and digital media creation. It is built on the industry’s most reliable perpendicular magnetic recording technology, allowing Fibrenetix to extend capacity beyond that available in current products. The hard drive features a 3.0Gb/s Serial-ATA (SATA) interface and large 32 MB data buffer to provide the performance required for high-end applications.¨

Leveraging a track record for reliability from previous-generation products, the Deskstar 7K1000 hard drive is built using a 5-platter design with relaxed areal density for greater reliability. To further ensure data integrity, the hard drive features a ramp load/unload design to increase shock protection and Thermal Fly-height Control (TFC) to maintain a consistent fly-height during the read/write process.
