As a member of the IBM Ultrastar family of disk drives the Ultrastar 9ES is designed to provide a reliable cost-effective storage solution for a wide range of workstations high-performance desktop systems and LAN servers running Internet/intranet CAD/CAM and multimedia applications...The Ultrastar 9ES achieves its high level of reliability performance and affordability by leveraging IBM's development and implementation experience in advanced disk drive technologies. These include Magnetoresistive Extended (MRX) advanced head technology No-ID sector formatting the Partial Response Maximum Likelihood (PRML) digital data channel and a new integrated LSI chip. MRX advanced head technology increases areal density and reduces the number of disks and heads required for a given capacity. No-ID sector formatting increases storage capacity by eliminating overhead caused by the duplicate storage of each data sector's ID field onto the disk which thereby creates more available disk.
