The Atlas™ 10K IV drive is the industry’s fastest 10K SCSI drive, with a seek time of 4.3ms and maximum sustained data transfer rate up to 72MB/sec. Thanks to its speed advantage, the Atlas 10K IV drive provides up to a 30% increase in sustained data transfer rates and delivers 9% faster seek times over the previous 10K SCSI generation.
With capacities of 36.7GB, 73.4GB and 147.1GB, these drives are ideal for the most demanding high-bandwidth and high-capacity enterprise server applications. The Ultra320 interface includes features such as packetization and quick arbitrate and select, which greatly increase data throughput. The Maxtor-developed Ultra320 interface includes MaxAdapt™ (adaptive active filtration), a closed-loop method of improving signal quality. MaxAdapt allows the drive to adapt to changing system conditions and components, which translates into lower error rates, easier integration, and increased bus efficiency for optimal system performance.
Like other Maxtor drives, the Atlas 10K IV drives provide superior shock durability with the Maxtor Shock Protection System, which guards against the effects of mistreatment during handling and integration. The result f.......
