Seagate Savvio Hard Drives to Be Incorporated in IBM eServer(TM) xSeries(R) 1U Servers

Seagate's 2.5-inch Savvio Disc Drive Enables Pure Enterprise-class RAID Performance and Reliability

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., Aug 4, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Seagate Technology (STX) today announced that IBM (IBM) will be the first to market with its new IBM eServer(TM) xSeries(R) 1U systems using Seagate Savvio 2.5-inch enterprise disc drives. The Seagate Savvio drives will be integrated into IBM xSeries 336(R) servers, making them the world's first 1U servers with four drives and enabling the capability for RAID 0, 1, and 5 functionality. Current 1U servers can only perform basic mirroring, due to the limitation of having space for only two drives. As the world's first 2.5-inch enterprise disc drive, Seagate Savvio delivers an improved return on investment (ROI) result for IT professionals because of its faster performance, improved space utilization and reduced infrastructure requirements.

"Customers are demanding systems that provide the utmost reliability and performance so they can reap the full benefits of the space and scalability advantages offered with 1U servers," said Alex Yost, IBM's director of Product Marketing for IBM eServer(TM) xSeries(R). "IBM is pleased to be working with Seagate to be the first to deliver Savvio 2.5-inch enterprise drive technology for 1U servers, which allows us to provide our customers the performance advantage of RAID on a 1U platform."

"Using Seagate Savvio, IBM's servers will be able to quickly and reliably handle the increased transactional demands of today's businesses," said Jeff Loebbaka, Seagate vice president of Global Marketing. "IBM's use of Savvio drives reaffirms Seagate's leadership in driving the 2.5-inch enterprise form factor transition and IBM's commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions that are tailored for the needs of their customers."

IBM will begin shipping Seagate Savvio drives within IBM xSeries 336(R) servers in early September. For more information about IBM enterprise storage solutions, visit www.ibm.com. For more information about Seagate and its family of enterprise disc products, visit www.seagate.com.
