DS8000 : new 300 GB 15.000 rpm disk drives

Wednesday : time to check the announcements !
Yesterday IBM announced new 300GB disk drives, now with a speed of 15.000 revolutions per minute. In fact there were two announcements : one for the new hardware models and one for the 'older' (2107) model that's no longer marketed. The key data :
The IBM System Storage DS8000 series now offers 300 GB 15,000 rpm disk drives supporting improved performance and additional priced options. The 300 GB 15,000 rpm disk drives can support up to 30 percent increased throughput and increased I/O operations per second as compared to similar-size 10,000 rpm disk drives, providing potential benefits for transaction processing workloads.
