HGST releases highest capacity 10K hard drive

HGST, formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies and now owned by Western Digital, has announced the industry’s highest capacity hard drive that spins at 10 000 rpm.

The new UltraStar C10K1200 hard drive sports a 2.5-inch form factor and 64 MB of cache, but its major trump is the offered capacity of 1.2 TB. Other features include support for SATA 3.0, optimized read/write response time and the staggering MTBF of 2 million hours that gives owners of databases a reason not to worry for their data.

But this is not everything – the integrated fluid dynamic bearing motors deliver low noise and improved data integrity, while the HGST Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) technology works to protect the drive against disturbance. Finally the HGST UltraStar C10K1200 comes with lowered power consumption that also decreases heat for improved reliability and lower power bills.

The new 1.2 TB 10 000 rpm UltraStar C10K1200 is available now. Pricing is unknown though.
