Back in 2013 Seagate said that they will release a 20 TB hard disk drive by 2020 and looks like they will reach their goal before that because the company is already offering the 10 TB hard disk drive and their future plans suggested that they will release the 14 TB and 16 TB hard disk drives by 18 months from now on.
The company will use SMR technology for the upcoming hard drives. And they are currently working on 12 TB hard disk in which helium technology will be used, said by the CEO of the company, Stephen Luczo.
The need of High space hard disks are getting higher among the big corporations and those users who can bear the cost of the drives, because they are always on shortage of capacity in their hard drives. Because hard drives are generally used in servers and disk arrays.
Seagate is releasing their 10TB hard drives which starts from around US $400.
Though the SSD drives is the game these days, since hard drives speed isn’t as SSD drives. But that doesn’t mean hard drives market is going to fall, because hard drive’s have more capacity than SSD’s.
Hard drives is seeing other demands as well for instance; surveillance system. Seagate also manufacture hard drives for surveillance which record videos smoothly.
SSD are usually available in gaming laptops and PC, Dell XPS series offers 512 GB other gaming PC’s have 256 GB and Asus gaming series offers up to 1000 GB.
