Seagate has shipped its one millionth solid state hybrid drive for laptop PCs after launching the product – Momentus XT – in spring 2010. Major computer makers including Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Sony and Toshiba now offer laptops powered by the 2.5-inch drive that blends performance rivaling solid state drives with the enormous capacity and much lower cost of hard disk drives.

The Momentus XT solid state hybrid drive, a 7200RPM drive with up to 500GB of capacity, boots up to 50 percent faster than traditional 5400RPM drives and sets new benchmarks for real-world system performance for laptops and gaming systems. Seagate's Adaptive Memory™ technology is key to the drive's speed, optimizing its performance by moving frequently used information into the 4GB of onboard solid state memory for faster bootup and application access.

"Seagate's shipment of its one millionth Momentus XT drive is just the beginning of a bright future for solid state hybrid drives," said John Rydning, research director at IDC. "Fast, capacious, and economical hybrid HDD and NAND flash storage solutions like the Momentus XT drive will be found in roughly 25 percent of all new PCs shipped in 2015."

The mini-SAS port equipped Mercury Rack Pro is like having four eSATA outputs for the ultimate in data transfer rates, but “bundles” those four channels of data output into the convenience of a single cable connection. Now SMBs, SOHOs, and creative production professionals have a simple, high performance, yet cost-effective mass storage solution that reduces cable complexity.

For massive capacity with the highest degree of drive access flexibility, the Mercury Rack Pro mini-SAS can be immediately used like a four bay drive dock. All four drives in the Mercury Rack Pro show up as individual drives, so users can then mix and match drives of any size and brand and hot swap the drives. The Mercury Rack Pro mini-SAS can also be used to RAID drives in a desired array with the additional purchase of third party RAID software or a SAS-SATA RAID controller card.
