HP upgrades servers with faster drives

Hewlett-Packard will use Seagate's 36GB Cheetah hard disks--which spin at 15,000rpm--in its servers, the companies announced Tuesday. Drives have steadily been getting faster over the years, with 10,000rpm drives being the norm in servers today. A faster spin rate reduces the time it takes for a drive to find the location to read or write information and increases the data transfer rate once reading or writing begins.
