Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Quantum said it has introduced the industry's highest capacity desktop hard drive. The Bigfoot TS series of drives comes in capacities of 6.4Gb, 8.4Gb, 12.7Gb and 19.2Gb in a 5.25-inch form factor and includes Quantum's shock protection system. That was previously only available on its Fireball L and Fireball EX hard drives. The drives, manufactured by Quantum's Japanese partner, Matsushita-Kotobuki, are aimed at consumers, small business users and commercial customers. Suggested retail prices for the drives are $169 for the TS 6.4, $199 for the TS 8.4, $299 for the TS 12.7 and $399 for the TS 19.2. Quantum claimed that the Bigfoot TS range has better performance over the previous range, including improved firmware and a 512K buffer. The drives include an Ultra ATA interface, a PRML read channel and 6.4Gb capacity on each of the platters. One of the first OEMs to use the Quantum drives is Hewlett Packard, which will build them into its HP Brio range. ® Click for more stories
