Seagate has launched its first 10TB enterprise hard drive – merging high capacity with the industry’s lowest power and weight available in a 10TB drive, said the company.
Seagate said the drive is aimed at meeting the growing storage requirements of private and public data centres.
The 10TB 3.5 HDD incorporates seven platters and 14 heads, while the drive seals in helium to create a turbulence-free, quiet environment.
The helium design decreases friction and resistance on the platters and delivers the industry’s lowest power/TB ratio and weight specifications for a 10TB HDD.
The 10TB HDD is available in both 6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS interfaces, and is now shipping to select customers worldwide.
