The USB drive8 The first terabyte of Seagate Enjoys a particularly short fame, now that Hitachi is announcing its first 10 terabyte drive
Along with a 10 terabyte drive, Hitachi unveils another pair of 8 and 6 terabyte drives, all belonging to its UltraStar series, using helium and shingled magnetic recording technologies. Like the Seagate, these models also come in the standard 3.5 "size and belong to the high-end drive market, and their price (yet to be revealed) will be accordingly.
Compliance with intensive work in front of cloud And as much performance versus consumption as possible is the highlight of the new UltraStar models.
Let's start with the main thing: there is some ambiguity over the UltraStar drive with a volume of 10 terabytes at the moment, when the interface and the rotational speed it will use are still unclear. It consists of seven 1.43 terabyte plates using the technologies mentioned to provide low power consumption and decent performance, although despite all these technologies, this drive is not expected to offer the highest performance, so its primary use is likely to be for purposes storage information.
Beneath the hit 10TB drive, there are a couple more new models: For Seagate's 8TB drive, Hitachi responds with the UltraStar He8 using the SATA 6GB / s or SAS 12GB / s interface And has a rotational speed per second of 7200. Also, the drive comes with זיכרון A cache of 128 megabytes. With helium technology, the drive uses seven plates of 1.2 terabyte volume. Hitachi also announced that this drive can reach a maximum transmission speed of 205 megabytes per second.
The third and final drive that comes in 6 terabytes is the Ultrastar 7K6000 and has interface data exactly identical to its 8 terabyte brother, but includes improved performance according to Hitachi, thanks to the fact that unlike the other pair, this drive uses five plates Only, in a volume of 1.2 terabytes.
Hitachi's new drives can be seen in the business market in anticipation of the start of 2015, when we will probably see more market-based versions at more affordable prices.
