The essential guide to IT transformation

Seagate has launched a new drive for entry-level server and high-end desktops, the Barracuda 36ES.

Following on from the Barracuda ATA, the 36ES drive has a high speed Ultra 160 SCSI interface with bus data rates of 160MBps. It has an average seek time of 8.5ms and a mean time between failure rating of 800,000 hours. It is also available with the single-ended narrow and wide SCSI interface solutions for those legacy systems needing additional storage resources.

The Barracuda 36ES is available in both 18.4GB and 36.9GB capacities. The recommended retail price is $319 and $519 respectively, per single unit, but Seagate says that the resellers will determine the actual price.

The Barracuda will be in volume production by the end of the year. ®
