Seagate to release 10 TB hard drives next year

The famous hard drive maker Seagate plans to catch up with Western Digital in terms of capacity but will do that in a different way starting next year when Seagate will launch its first 10 TB hard drives.

The intention of the company lies within the plans Seagate has shared with its partners. According to the company Seagate does not believe in helium-filled hard drives as they tend to be more expensive than necessary and to increase capacity the company will use the tested Shingled Magnetic Recording technology. It is this exact technology that will be used in the upcoming 10 TB Seagate hard drives. To reach this capacity Seagate will use six recording platters but this will not affect the performance and reliability of these drives.

In the 2016-2017 timeframe Seagate will migrate to the so-called Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) technology that will allow the company to increase hard drive capacities by 20-30 per cent every year. Thus hard drives will remain a major factor on the storage market thanks to the capacity that they can offer.
