The 250GB Notebook hard drive and Barracuda FDE

 

Seagate Technology has announced a new 250GB 2.5 inch notebook hard drive, and in addition to that a "world's first" desktop PC drive with native encryption, Barracuda FDE (full disk encryption).

The new 2.5 inch 5400rpm hard drive feature 250GB of capacity on just two platters and Serial ATA 3.0 interface. As the press release states, newest Seagate notebook drive has 325 Gs (operating) and 900Gs (non-operating) shock resistance, which makes him ideal for systems that are subjected to rough handling and high levels of vibration.

As for the Barracuda FDE, it is the first 1 TB desktop hard drive with "government grade" encryption. It has a native encryption that prevents unauthorized access to data on lost or stolen hard drives or systems. The encryption used is an AES encryption, the strongest protocol commercially available.

The 2.5 inch Momentus 5400.4 will ship to system builders in the fourth quarter and the FDE Barracuda will be available in 2008.
