Applications of the 500 GB 7.2k RPM Drives 005048596, 005048696, 005048809

Using the 7.2k RPM drives such as part numbers 005048596, 005048696, 005048809 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-2G72-500 / 005048596 / 005048696 / 005048809 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.
