Western Digital (WDC +0.8%) is hoping its new Se hard drives will find their way into Google, Facebook, and Amazon's data centers (among others). Meant for NAS storage systems and (more importantly) "scale-out" data centers (they typically feature thousands of cheap, densely-packed, energy-efficient servers), Se drives features many high-reliability and high-performance features associated with enterprise drives, but cost just $160-$310. Web/cloud services firms have avidly embraced scale-out architectures, and are accounting for a growing chunk of server sales. The announcement comes as IDC forecasts PC shipments will fall 7.8% this year.
