Back in the spring, Seagate Technology LLC introduced its “Enterprise Disc Drive,” a new 2.5-inch hard disk format with enterprise-class performance and interfaces. According to marketing materials seen by, the company will brand the forthcoming drive as “Savvio.”

The drive will ship in both 36.7GB and 73.4GB capacities, according to Seagate’s materials. The product family has not yet been added to the company’s Web site.

As unique as the Savvio moniker is, the name has been used before by now-defunct, an online travel site born in the dot-com boom of 2000 and that died shortly thereafter in the first week of 2001.

Seagate, meanwhile, has higher hopes for its own enterprise drive. Even though it’s called a 2.5-inch drive, Savvio will measure 15mm high, thicker than most notebook drives. The company’s materials did not indicate how much cache memory would be included in each drive.
