Technology launched its first 10TB enterprise capacity hard disk drive (HDD) on Wednesday.
Named as Seagate Enterprise 3.5 Capacity HDD, the product features industry’s lowest power and weight available in a 10TB drive to meet the growing storage requirements for private and public cloud-based data centers.
“Cloud-based data center storage needs are expanding faster than many current infrastructures can sustain, rendering the capacity demands of users a herculean task for cloud managers,” said Mark Re, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Seagate.
“Built on our years of research and development of sealed-drive technology, our new helium-based enterprise drive is designed precisely to help data-centric organizations worldwide solve the needs of their growing storage business.”
Seagate claimed that the 10TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD provides maximum storage capacity for easy system integration by using the standard 3.5-inch CMR design.
“More and more data centers are being put into operation as a result of data growing at an exponential rate. With this in mind, we are laser focused on lowering our TCO and confident the new Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD can help us with this endeavor,” said Li Shu, senior expert technical support for storage and research and development, at Alibaba.
“We value the drives winning combination of higher storage capacities, increased performance and low power consumption— making it a win-win for both us and our customers.”
Most recently, Seagate launched Seagate NAS HDD 8TB, the highest-capacity drive optimized for RAID, Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and server storage.
