Fujitsu MAS3184NC hard drive specifications

Fujitsu Enterprise MAS3184NC - hard drive - 18.4 GB - Ultra320 SCSI

Fujitsu's latest generation of 15K RPM Enterprise hard disk drives now offers capacities of up to 73GB in a 1-inch high, 3.5-inch form factor. The new MAS series is the next generation of hard disk products from Fujitsu offering low profile, high speed and high capacity to high performance enterprise computing applications. The MAS series comes with a spindle speed of 15K RPM. Areal density has doubled and internal drive transfer rates have been increased by 28% to 114MB/s and is equipped with an 8MB multi-segmented data buffer combined with a 32-bit wide internal data path for faster data access. Moreover, using Fujitsu's Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) technology as standard across the 15K RPM series reduces acoustic output remarkably to 3.6 Bels in ready mode respectively. The MAS series supports the Ultra 320 SCSI (320MB/s) interface which offers new performance and reliability enhancing features such as data packet protocol, quick arbitration and selection, and signal pre-compensation. Leading edge technology enables industry leading performance specifications blended with the latest advances in interface technology, to provide a cost effective storage solution that meets the most demanding enterprise storage requirements.
