Seagate unveils several new 8 TB hard drives

The famous manufacturer of hard drives Seagate Technology has unveiled a brand new portfolio of 8 TB hard drives that includes three models as of now – the Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD, Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD and Seagate Kinetic HDD. The new drives are targeted at small- and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises that need more and more storage space.

“Customers today need storage solutions to support a diverse, and sometimes very specialized, set of applications and workload requirements,” said Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate. “In designing our products, we look closely at the type of data being stored, performance needs, power requirements, environmental operating conditions, network topologies, uptime demand and more, to ensure our customers receive the right storage technology for the job. This thoughtful approach has enabled us to deliver the most compelling 8TB portfolio available in the industry.”

Each new 8 TB model has tech advantages that will please users. The Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD 8 TB offers an improved magnetic recording technology along with a 100 per cent increase in random read/write performance compared to previous generations. The 8 TB Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD provides one third more storage density when compared to the previous 6 TB generation drive. The new drive also provides lower power consumption, the ability to install fewer drives without sacrificing capacity and more. The 8 TB Kinetic HDD is focused on total cost of ownership (TCO) and uses Shingled Magnetic Recording. The drive also supports the Kinetic Open Storage platform.

Wide availability of the new 8 TB hard drives is expected later this year. No word on pricing as of now.
