Singapore, June 26, 2007

Leading regional IT and communications solutions provider Fujitsu Asia today announced the launch of three new series of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drives (HDDs).

The MBA3 series of 3.5-inch HDDs rated at 15,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) offer storage capacities of 73.5 gigabytes (GB), 147 GB and 300 GB, while the MBB2 series of 2.5-inch 10,000 rpm HDDs is available in 73.5 GB and 147 GB versions. The MBC2 series of 2.5-inch 15,000 rpm HDDs include 36.7 GB and 73.5 GB models.

With maximum buffer sizes of 8 MB, short read and write times, the three series are designed for mission-critical server or storage system applications requiring high input/output performances, low power consumption, minimal heat dissipation and other benefits.
