Seagate ships 10 TB helium-filled hard drives in volume

The major maker of hard drives Seagate Technology Plc. has announced that it now ships its 10 TB helium-filled Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD in volume. The drive is designed for cloud storage usage scenarios and Seagate says the drive comes with the industry’s lowest power and weight for maximum space efficiency at the lowest energy usage, which reduces the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) of today’s large scale data centers.

“Seagate has the most comprehensive Nearline portfolio in the industry. Each of our Nearline products – including our new flagship 10 TB helium enterprise drive shipping today – is designed to help customers take maximum advantage of top technology trends that have the highest impact on their business,” said Mark Re, CTO at Seagate. “While we offer a number of impressive technology advantages, at the end of the day customers really want solutions and insights that help them better leverage the value of their data so they can offer services and capabilities unmatched by their competitors. Seagate’s 10TB helium drive is designed with these market mandates front of mind.”

“Seagate’s 10 TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD expands Supermicro’s hyperscale server and storage solutions optimized for cloud solution providers. With Supermicro’s 4U 60/90 3.5″ top-load hot-swap bay server and single expander JBOD storage solutions, Seagate helium-based high capacity drives provide a robust foundation for building OpenStack cloud infrastructure, delivering maximum performance, scalability and capacity density at the lowest overall TCO,” said Don Clegg, vice president of marketing and business development at Supermicro.

The 10 TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD model offers new levels of performance by using very advanced write caching algorithms that help cloud data center managers manage the constant influx of data more quickly. The drive also sports Seagate’s PowerChoice technology that reduces the power that the drive needs and keeps it cooler, thus prolonging its useful life. In addition the Seagate PowerBalance technology that the drive uses further improves the IOPS/watt ratio for even greater efficiency.

Seagate has not disclosed any pricing details so if you are interested in this hard drive you should check with your local Seagate representative.
