Seagate claims Vista needs 250GB to 1TB of storage

Posted on Thursday, September 27 2007 @ 08:28:55 CEST by

Hard disk drive maker Seagate claims that to fully leverage Windows Vista you'll need 250GB to 1TB of storage capacity in your system:
The hard drive has gone from an afterthought, says Steege, to the heart of the machine. Calling Vista the "poster child for storage" he says users need 250GB to 1TB of storage to fully leverage the operating system. And with the need for backup, that becomes 500GB to 2TB. Seagate's offering in this higher-end space is the Barracuda 7200.11, its new 1TB drive (see " Unfashionably late: Seagate, Samsung unveil 1TB hard disk drives").

"We want to equip solution providers with some solution-selling tools and a program they're used to getting from longer-term vendors like Intel, AMD and Microsoft," said Steege. "We now see the opportunity to help them like that from a hard drive perspective."

Seagate's goal, he said, is to provide partners with tools to help them sell higher-value systems by offering the right storage option for the intended use.
