HGST, a Western Digital Company announced the world’s first enterprise-class 10TB HDD for cloud-to-cold storage applications. This 10TB hard-drive sets unprecedented capacity leadership at the lowest $/TB and watts/TB by harnessing two complementary technologies: HelioSeal technology and host-managed Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR).

As the first and only company to ship a hermetically sealed, helium-filled HDD, the HelioSeal platform provides the long-term path for delivering the highest capacities, while significantly lowering power and cooling and improving storage density. To better serve the evolving data center’s capacity and efficiency needs, all future HGST enterprise capacity HDDs will be built on the HelioSeal platform.

By combining two foundational building blocks, HelioSeal and SMR, HGST is able to deliver unprecedented capacity points at an accelerated rate with very low TCO. This platform enables new storage applications for data that is past its create-and-modify phase of life and is in need of efficient, accessible, long term retention.

HGST is currently sampling the new 10TB HDDs. Via the HGST site.
