Hitachi Rocks the Enterprise Storage Space with 10,000 RPM 900GB SAS Drive

"18 percent faster sequential and 17 percent faster random performance than the nearest competitor." just as long as the competitor is not an SSD in which case the hitachi will be hundreds of percent slower.



But writing to it will not kill it over time. Enterprise cares more about reliability than anything else, which is why most SSDs in the enterprise storage market use ridiculously expensive, tiny capacity SLC NAND. $700 for 64GB? Worth it to them since you can write to SLC ten times more often than MLC before it dies. But this 10K HDD doesn't have those issues, and will scale nicely in massive arrays for significantly less cost (~$1.10/GB vs ~$10.50/GB).
