The 600GB Cheetah 15K.7 Fibre Channel 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (OEM) from Seagate is a high performance, high capacity data storage drive that has been designed for environments such engineering workstations, network servers, mainframes, and supercomputers. It is also well suited for business and transaction processing, storage area networks and network attached storage, E-mail, decision support, Internet, and e-commerce.

This 3.5" drive features a 600GB capacity and a 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel interface that provides external data transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s, internal data transfer rates of up to 2370 Mb/s, and sustained data transfer rates of up to 204 MB/s. It also features a fast rotational speed of 15,000 rpm, which will allow data to be accessed more quickly than with a 7200 rpm drive and its 16 MB/s cache will help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. Additionally, the drive's 1.6 million hours MTBF combined with its AFR of 0.44% and non-recoverable read error rate of 1 x 1016 will help to ensure that this drive has a strong operational life.

Cheetah 15K.7 drives further help to enhance durability by using a dedicated landing zone at the innermost radius of the media to help eliminate the possibility of destroying or degrading data by landing in the data zone. The heads automatically go to the landing zone when power is removed from the drove. Furthermore, an automatic shipping lock helps prevent potential damage to the heads and discs that results from movement during shipping and handling. The shipping lock disengages and the head load process begins when power is applied to the drive. Lastly, the drive also uses a high performance actuator assembly with a low-inertia, balanced, patented, and straight arm design that helps to provide strong performance with minimal power dissipation.
