Maxtor has announced a storage industry first, with the introduction of Ultra320 SCSI for its enterprise hard disk drives. The move has been enabled by a collaboration with LSI Logic Corporation, to create full interoperability between Maxtor Atlas 10K III HDDs and LSI Logic’s Ultra320 SCSI controllers.

The Atlas 10K III will offer improved performance for functions such as network storage, Internet and Intranet networks and multimedia streaming. Ultra320 SCSI allows data transfer speeds of 320MB per second, with improved signal integrity and efficiency due to technologies such as adaptive active filtration, (AAF).

“By working with LSI Logic, we are ensuring that customers can realise increased reliability, better signal integrity and doubled data transfer speeds offered by the new Ultra320 SCSI interface,” explained John Joseph, vice president of marketing for Server Products at Maxtor.

The drives, which will feature speeds of 10,000 RPM and average seek time of 4.5 ms, will be available in 1” form factor with up to 73GB storage from early Q1 2002.
