HP promotes smaller server drives

Posted on March 23, 2005


Hard drives in servers today are 3.5 inches wide, but Hewlett-Packard plans to start shipping a new generation of 2.5-inch drives starting in May, said Paul Miller, vice president of industry-standard server marketing for the company. The drives are slightly thicker than the models used in notebook computers. This is one of two shifts the HP server group announced recently: in addition to smaller hard drives there is an emphasis on IP-based networking technology, which has the potential to be more mainstream than other types of networked storage.http://techrepublic.com.com/2100-10586_11-5622506.html?tag=nl.e040
