In recent months, we've seen HDDs reach capacities of 14TB, but that doesn't mean that there won't be advances that help increase performance along the way. That's where Seagate comes into focus with what it is calling Multi Actuator technology. Seagate explains that while today's HDDs have greater areal densities than ever before, it has handicapped overall drive performance. To combat this lull in performance, Seagate is taking aim at the drive actuator. A HDD's actuator... Read more...
