Fujitsu designs hard drive for 24 hour heavy use

Maybe I should rethink leaving my computer running 24/7. How do you define ‘heavy use’? Hard drives in servers? Yes. Daily web surfing? No. Fujitsu clearly is aiming this product at big business and technology corporations. Hello? Google? This if Fujitsu, we’ve got some new hard drives we think you’ll love.

The 2.5″ hard disk drives are specifically designed for 24-hour continuous operation and are available in a category-leading capacity of 250 GB and a speed of 7,200 RPM. Sales of the new MHZ2 BK Series will start at the end of July 2008.

Demanding high-frequency usage, servers or data storage systems in enterprise equipment, including ATMs or POS systems in industrial applications, where daily uptime is required.

Another feature of the new series is that it has industry-leading power conservation, requiring a low 2.3 W for read and write operations. The series is one of many new products announced as part of Fujitsu’s Green Policy Innovation program, unveiled in December 2007 to promote energy-efficient products and services as a way to help customers lower their ecological footprint.
