Hard Disk Drives Guide
Seagate has announced that it has just shipped the world's first 8TB drives to selected enterprise customers.
Western Digital has just introduced the all-new WD Red Pro series as well as new 5TB and 6TB WD Red drives for NAS applications.
Prototype WD PCI Express hybrid drive benchmark spotted in the wild at Computex 2014 and appears to achieve the current gen SATA Express 1GB/s bandwidth utilization.
WD's prototype introduces the new SATA Express interface, a form of PCI Express technology, which is offered on recently launched Intel series-9 chipset motherboard platforms. The SATA Express interface provides a roadmap for faster speeds, lower power consumption, and increased flexibility for future OEM designs.
The new HDD builds on an 8th-gen platform that enables the drive to deliver up to a 25% increase in performance over present 6TB drives, making it ideal for 24x7 bulk data storage. Utilizing the latest generation of 12Gbps SAS, the drive provides customers with the scalability for future-proofing their systems.
A helium-filled HDD offers many benefits over a conventional HDD, such as a reduction of up to 23% in power consumption and 4°C in overall operating temperatures. However, we found out that the price difference between these two is rather significant.
Toshiba has announced new additions to its enterprise capacity HDDs, the AL13SXB and the self-encrypting AL13SXQ, while HGST has introduced its Ultrastar C15K600 family of enterprise-class HDDs.
Designed to scale video storage, the drive now incorporates rotational vibration (RV) sensors enabling it to reliably perform in systems with up to 16 drives, making it ideal for SMEs where bulk storage for HD video and video analytics are highly valued.
Recognizing the growing need for storage for video surveillance systems, Western Digital has just announced the Purple, a HDD specifically designed for video surveillance purposes.
Toshiba has just announced the industry's largest non-helium gas filled hard disk drives with 5TB of capacity.
