Fujitsu is refreshing its enterprise hard drives with two new 3.5in lines to replace the MAP and MAS series.

The MAT range is available in three capacity points: 300GB, 147GB and 73GB and either Ultra 320 SCSI or Fibre Channel 2 interfaces. The 300GB takes Fujitsu head to head against Hitachi, which launched a 300GB drive of its own last month. With spindle speeds of up to 10,000rpm, the internal data transfer rate of the 300GB is 132 MB/s is 23 per cent faster than its immediated predeccessor.

The MAU range cranks out spindle feeds of up to 15,000rpm. It too is available in three capacity points: 36GB, 73GB and 147GB, and features internal data transfer at 147 MB/s, 25 per cent better than Fujitsu's previous offering. Like the MAT range, it is available in a choice of Ultra 320 SCSI and Fibre Channel 2 interfaces.

Qualification units for OEM customers will be available from April for the MAT series from June for the MAU series. Volume shipments will start shortly after that. ®
