EMC CLARiiON CX-2G10-73 73 GB 10k RPM Drives
The EMC CLARiiON CX-2G10-73 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) 73 GB hard disk drives dramatically increase performance through improvements in disk operations such as rotational latency and seek rates – the factors that most directly affect access times. The 73 GB 10k RPM hard disk drives deliver 5.2 ms average read seek times and 3.0 ms average rotational latency times – both the fastest available for drives of these capacities available on the market.
Applications of the 73 GB 10k RPM Drives 005047873
Using the 10k RPM drives such as part number 005047873 in applications that use small block, random I/O is an important factor in realizing higher performance benefits. These applications have a tendency to minimize any caching advantages of the storage system. In addition, with applications such as these, the physical access to data on the disk has the greatest effect on overall performance. These small block, random I/O applications reap the greatest benefits from storage-system performance improvements achieved through the drive’s improved seek and rotational latency times.

EMC CX-2G10-73 / 005047873 Enabling Technologies
These performance breakthroughs are made possible as a result of improved HDD spindle motors, as well as head / media designs that allow the disk media surface to rotate at incredible speeds. The improvements include:
- Advanced ferro-fluid bearing design to limit heat buildup and reduce power requirements.
- Advanced motor stator design to improve power-to-revolution ratios and also limit heat buildup.
- Improved head / disk interfaces, which allow for higher rotational speeds and improved head flying height performance and stability.
