HGST announces first 10 TB hard drive for archive applications

HGST, which is now owned by Western Digital, has announced the world’s first 10 TB enterprise-class hard drive designed for next-generation active archive applications. The drive is called Ultrastar Archive Ha10 and relies on HGST’s second generation HelioSeal platform and shingled magnetic recording (SMR), which deliver capacity, low power consumption and performance.

“HGST’s helium-filled drives boast industry-leading storage density, low power consumption and proven reliability with 2.5M hours MTBF. By layering SMR on top of helium, we are enabling massively-scalable, TCO-driven storage solutions with the performance and durability necessary for the long term retention of archived data,” said Brendan Collins, vice president of product marketing, HGST. “Making SMR design investments today minimizes incremental efforts for future SMR solutions, and gives our customers a time-to-market advantage for all current and future high capacity HDDs in the market.”

The new HGST Ultrastar Archive Ha10 hard drive offers 2 million hours of mean time before failure (MTBF), a 5-year warranty, a 10-15 unrecoverable reduced bit error rate, rotational vibration safeguards and 600 000 load/unload cycles. The drive offers SATA 3.0 and SAS 6 Gb/sec form factors and the popular 3.5-inch form factor. The platters inside spin at 7200 rpm and offer 8.5 ms of typical read latency, while making just 2.0 dBa of noise. The drive also comes with 256 MB of data buffer memory.

No word on how much this HGST model costs.
