Eurocom breaks 3TB storage barrier in its notebooks with Seagate Momentus 7200rpm drives
Eurocom, which specializes in desktop replacements, has cracked the 3TB storage barrier on a single laptop by cramming up to four laptop hard drives in its mobile server and mobile workstation lines.
High capacity laptop drives typically require three platters, resulting in a thicker drive. However, not only has Seagate managed to pack 750GB in two platters (and hence a standard 9.5mm drive height) in its latest Momentus, the ST9750420AS, the drive has a rotational speed of 7200rpm too. With massive storage capacity and speed, virtualization and cloud computing are just some of the tasks that can be done with Eurocom’s new high powered mobile solutions.
Eurocom Press Release
Eurocom has been able to crack the 3TB 7200rpm barrier in its Mobile Servers and Mobile Workstations thanks to Seagate hard drives that have reduced in size from 12.5 mm to 9.5 mm. Now Eurocom has been able to cram up to 4 hard drives into such models as the EUROCOM D900F Panther, EUROCOM X8100 Leopard and the soon to be released EUROCOM X7200 Panther 2.0. This new piece of technology will increase the already very high processing power, speed and storage space of the Eurocom products.
Eurocom notebooks can be used for a wide range of uses due to their 3TB storage, extremely fast Intel i7-980X Extreme or Xeon 5500/5600 with up to 6 cores and 19 inch displays and superfast NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M, Quadro FX 3800M, ATi Radeon Mobility HD5870 in single or dual VGA operation (SLI or CrossfireX).
With Eurocom’s ability to fit up to four physical hard drives in their high performance mobile workstations in combination with the large storage capacity of the Momentus 3Gb/s 750GB Hard Drive the total storage capacity in the mobile workstation can get up to 3 Terabyte. The multiple hard drives also allow the usage of RAID 0/1/5/10 which provides both data redundancy and increased disk performance. Amazingly enough no other notebook manufacturer offers mobile products with 3TB of hard drive storage.
Eurocom mobile servers and workstations are designed to replace traditional desktop computers by offering high performance computing in a portable and mobile platform with maximum upgradeability, expandability, and reliability.
Eurocom now gives users the ability to use these massive 3TB hard drives for a large array of practical uses such as a Virtualization, workstation-class applications, cloud computing and any other applications that require high end computing power combined with high storage capacity demands and RAID 0/1/5/10 capabilities.
3TB of storage is supported in the following models:
1) EUROCOM D900F Panther Workstation
with Intel i7-980X Extreme processor and NVIDIA GTX 480M or Quadro FX 3800M
2) EUROCOM D900F Panther Mobile Server
