And vertically stored data bits mean increased data density—which means higher performance to increase productivity.
The Eco-Friendly Choice
The Seagate® Barracuda® 7200.12 drive delivers power savings without sacrificing performance. Customers can manufacture eco-friendly PC and external storage systems that meet energy-savings requirements.
The drive combines proven technology with expert manufacturing to deliver up to 1TB of desktop storage. Customers can have the best of both worlds—top harddrive performance and a high-capacity drive with a very small eco-footprint. Seagate minimizes the impact of our products and operations on the environment with efficiency measures, such as replacing or renovating less-efficient equipment, resulting in a 20 percent increase in production efficiency on a per-hard-drive basis. This delivered a 158.93 million kWh savings in six months, or enough energy to power nearly 15,000 U.S. homes for one year. Seagate also has deployed aggressive waste minimization and recycling programs in facilities worldwide.
Seagate hard drives have long been produced with the environment in mind, and not just with low power consumption. With Seagate and the Barracuda 7200.12 drive, our customers can have the best of both worlds—top hard-drive performance and the satisfaction of knowing they are using a high-capacity drive with a very small eco-footprint.
