Targeted at enterprise blade and general server applications, the Pulsar is a 2.5 inch SATA drive, and it will come in variants with up to 200GB capacity.

“Our strategy is to provide our customers with the exact storage device they need for any application… and you can expect additional products in the future from Seagate using a variety of solid state and rotating media components.”
