Fujitsu Ltd has developed a new series of 2.5-inch HDDs specifically designed for 24hr continuous operation and are available in a capacity of 250Gbyte and a rotational speed of 7,200 RPM. Sales of the MHZ2 BK series will start at the end of July.

The MHZ2 BK series will serve demanding environments with high-frequency access, including entry-level servers or storage systems in enterprise IT equipment, and ATMs or POS systems in industrial applications, where reliability is paramount. According to Fujitsu, one of the features of the new series is that it has industry-leading power conservation, requiring a low 2.3W for read and write operations.

Meanwhile, the MHZ2 BS series, which will be available starting the end of the month, has a rotational speed of 5,400 RPM.

According to Fujitsu, both series were designed with the environment in mind, requiring a low 2.3 W for read and write operations, while the MHZ2 BS Series requires only 2.1 W, ranking them both among the most power-efficient HDDs in the industry. They are also manufactured in compliance with the EU's RoHS Directive.

Both series use the high-throughput 3.0 Gbit/s SATA interface and minimize the rotational vibration that poses problems in enterprise IT equipment and industrial applications, helping ensure continuous high performance.
