Compellent plans 900GB 2.5-inch disk drives

15,000rpm speedsters coming too

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Compellent's hardware road map shows larger capacity and faster 2.5-inch drives coming.

The C-Drive conference was told that 900GB 2.5-inch drives spinning at 10,000rpm lay in the relatively near future. A 15K rpm 2.5-inch drive with 300GB capacity is coming too. This would be the fastest small form factor disk drive available. Drive manufacturers have not announced such products.

Compellent currently supplies a 146GB, 3.5-inch STEC solid state drive with Fibre Channel connectivity, and plans to add a 2.5-inch SAS-connected one with a 100GB-plus capacity. Multi-level cell capability would also arrive - STEC coincidentally having 2-bit MLC products available.

Drive manufacturers weren't mentioned, however both STEC and Seagate had booths at the C-Drive conference. ®
