HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.



HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.


The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

Lian Li PC-10N: Chassis with an Extraordinary Motherboard Localization

Lian Li, a well-known manufacturer of PC cases, has officially introduced its newest chassis codenamed PC-10N. The model is designed in a popular mid-tower form-factor and is ready to accommodate motherboards of ATX, mini-ITX and micro-ATX standard. The chassis differentiates itself by an unusual motherboard localization: instead of conventional tray, the layout stipulates dedicated strips that fix the board. This was done with the aim to provide for a better airflow and to facilitate cable management process. Besides, absence of the tray makes the case much lighter.



Lian Li PC-10N is delivered in two color samples: silver (PC-10NA) and black (PC-10NB). Internal framework allows for the assembling of quite powerful PC systems. It might house rather high CPU coolers (up to 155 mm), rather lengthy expansion cards (up to 300 mm), and ATX-compatible power supply units of up to 300 mm in length. There is a possibility of removing HDD bay to free space for even more lengthy adapters …
