On another note it looks like the manufacturers are focusing mostly on the enterprise sector. Makes sense given that SSDs these days are cheap enough and large enough for most non-enterprise users.
I just want to know who is going to be the first to roll out a modern 5.25" half height drive with like 14 platters in it. They could probably get 25TB+ in one.
Can't wait for Merc's reaction to this. :rofl:
You'd better replace them all and destroy your 10TB drives then.
Seagate has 12TB enterprise drives now too.
Another success story to add to your link creation history. At least we know no one else post under your credentials.
Something is not right. It is quoting my older post like there is a loop. :scratch:
Does your scrotum have enough space for that?I don't find any 12TB drives from the Seagate or WD yet. Does it make sense to fill my NADS with those rather than 10TB?
They're Ultrastars, sold under the HGST brand.I don't find any 12TB drives from the Seagate or WD yet.
They sound to be crappified versions of the Ultrastars.
However, they will be available B2C.
BTW, locally, the SATA version of the Seagate Enterprise Capacity Helium 12TB drive is slightly cheaper than either the Barracuda Pro or the Ironwolf Pro at similar capacity. The choice seems obvious.
I know that the He drives are generally cooler and use less power, but are they quieter than comparable air-filled drives?It was the same with the 10TB helium drives. I don't know why, since the Enterprise Capacity drives have a higher MTBF and almost twice the duty rating for TB written/year.
What about the n ew WD technolgy?
I think that the Anandtech article best explains it.
This is going to be for enterprise servers, where huge and cheap make sense.
