The date for the 146GB 15k drive has not been fixed yet.

Anyway, you will first see the introduction of a 300GB 10k FC drives for the EVA and XP.

Remark: 15k drives are manly used to improve system OLTP read performance. In order to get real good OLTP performance you need lots of disks. Therefore I prefer to use more but smaller drives in these cases!

Oops, 146GB of course!
Yes, we need it for Oracle DWH, the most I/O demanding application I ever saw...

If performance is your issue remember the more spindle you have the better...

Why not keep the 72GB 15k's and grow your capacity in the group this way.
