Seagate first revealed its 10TB enterprise-class hard drives to us back in January, and at the time, the storage monsters were being sampled at Alibaba and Huawei. Now, those same drives, which Seagate claims are the “highest capacity drives available worldwide,” have entered regular production and are currently shipping. The drives come in a 3.5-inch form-factor and are filled with helium, which helps to reduce power consumption. Given that these drives will likely be occupying space in countless server racks within data centers around the globe, any reduction in power is appreciated because companies... Read more...
Seagate is a bit late to the helium party, but this week announced its first 10TB enterprise-class helium-filled 3.5-inch hard drive. Although they have yet to reach retail shelves (neither brick and mortar or online), e-commerce giant Alibaba and smartphone darling Huawei are currently sampling the drives. Western Digital/HGST has fielded helium-filled hard drives since 2013, so it’s quite odd that Seagate waited this long to bring its offering to the table. With that being said, Seagate claims that it has emerged with a 10TB device that has the “industry’s lowest power and weight” profiles. We... Read more...
We've come a long way since the days when hard drives were measured in megabytes. Underscoring that point is the industry's first 10TB enterprise-class HDD, the host-managed Ultrastar Archive Ha10 SMR built by HGST, a division of Western Digital. HGST says the capacious HDD is intended of next-generation archive applications. The 10TB monster is a helium-based drive, the third of its kind by HGST in the past two years. HGST says it's deployed over a million helium-based HelioSeal HDDs to date and is super confident in the technology's reliability. In the task the new drive was purpose built for... Read more...
Fusion-io reminds us why we love technology so much. How so? Well, it's awfully hard not to perk up and get excited when you learn about a 10TB storage device with multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory. Yes folks, that's ten freaking terabytes Fusion-io managed to cram onto its ioDrive Octal, or twice as much as was previously available on the single double-wide PCI Express device. "The 10TB ioDrive Octal packs increased raw flash capacity in a server, enabling customers to accelerate even very large data sets with an intelligent and efficient ioMemory solution," said David Flynn, Fusion-io...
