MaXLine III drives provide large-capacity enterprise disk storage ideally suited for midline and nearline applications that require increased performance beyond traditional optical and tape solutions, as well as higher reliability than traditional desktop hard drives. MaXLine III drives provide IT managers with faster, more efficient alternatives to traditional backups, such as point-in-time copies, snapshot clones and remote replication. Businesses also have the option of maintaining more information on midline storage to supplement their online storage, offering them greater flexibility in managing their data. The third-generation MaXLine drives offer up to 300GB storage capacity designed for Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) of 1 million hours for low I/O duty cycle midline and nearline applications. Offered with a five-year limited warranty, MaXLine III drives are available in either parallel or serial ATA interfaces. Features: Large capacity up to 300GB. 7200 RPM. Serial ATA150 interfaces. 16MB cache buffer. Native command queuing for 2X improved random read performance over previous generation MaXLine. 12.5 rad/sec2 rotational vibration. Rated to 1 million hours MTTF for midline and nearline applications at low I/O duty cycles. S.M.A.R.T. features. RoHS compliant version available.
