Fiber drive is to improve the speed and flexibility of multi-hard disk storage system was developed, and its emergence greatly improved the speed of multi-drive system communication.
Fiber drive has a Fiber Channel interface (FC, Fiber Channel) hard drive, with this interface hard drive in the use of fiber-optic connection with hot-swappable, high-speed bandwidth (4Gb / s), Fiber Disc remote connectivity and other characteristics limited to its high Price, usually used in high-end server areas
This professional hard drive internal transmission rate than ordinary
Hard drive much better, Fiber Disc because the use of a higher density of the disk, higher speed.
1. Up to 171MB / sec sustainability data transfer rate.
2. With vertical recording technology, the magnetic density can be as high as 225Gb / square inch.
3. Provide up to 4Gb / s Fiber Channel external interface.
Used to focus on storage systems, Fiber Disc in order to improve the speed and flexibility of multi-hard disk storage system was developed, it appears to greatly improve the multi-hard disk system communication speed.
1. Support the FC interface of high-end workstations, servers
2. A disk array system that supports FC interfaces
