Reportedly offering up to 18% faster sequential I/O than its predecessors, the 2.5-inch Ultrastar C10K900 is available in capacities including 300GB, 450GB, and 600GB.

Aimed at data center use in servers and storage arrays, this announcement comes just days after Hitachi disclosed that it now expects the deal to sell its GST hard drive business to Western Digital to close in March 2012, four months later than scheduled due to delays in obtaining approval from regulatory agencies.

Hitachi claims the new C10K900 hard drive is the fastest available in its class. It has sustained sequential read/write speeds as fast as198MB/sec and 117MB/sec, respectively, Hitachi said, adding that it doesn't disclose random read/write speeds.

Hitachi GST is now shipping Ultrastar C10K900 qualification units to system manufacturers. Volume shipments are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2012.
