Seagate debuts its first 10 TB enterprise-class HDD

The major maker of hard disk drives Seagate Technology has officially presented its first enterprise-class hard disk drive with a capacity of 10 TB. The new hard drive merges ultra high capacity with low power consumption and low weight and meets all storage demands of today and tomorrow.

“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.”

The new hard drive belongs to Seagate’s Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD family and comes in the standard 3.5-inch form factor. Internally the drive consists of seven recording platters and fourteen recording heads but to increase reliability Seagate has filled the hard drive with helium. Thus the Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD 10 TB model will be able to enjoy a turbulence-free and quiet environment, no air friction, lower temperatures, lower power consumption and more. Furthermore the new hard drive improves performance by using advanced caching algorithms and Seagate’s PowerBalance technology for optimized IOPS/watt results for even more efficiency. The drive offers an improved MTBF of 2.5 million hours and can be used in 24×7 systems with no problems at all. The new Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD 10 TB is also available in 12 Gb/s SAS and 6 Gb/s SATA interfaces.

The new Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD 10 TB is now on the market. No word on pricing, though.
