Seagate, one of the largest suppliers of hard drives in the world, announced on Tuesday a new portfolio of flash-based storage solutions. Among the portfolio of products is a new Seagate 600 Series solid state drive, the company's first client-based SSD and one that's available in multiple z-heights, including an industry first 5mm-high drive that can squeeze into ultra-thin devices and laptops alike.
You could store over a million songs on Seagate's 4TB hard drive.
A representative for Seagate dropped us a note today to let us know the company is now shipping what it claims is the industry's first and only 4TB hard drive to utilize 1TB-per-platter technology. According to Seagate, the four-platter design is a winning one that allows for the highest performance possible while doubling capacity and reducing costs, ultimately giving consumers the best of all worlds.
No hard drive maker has shipped more HDDs than Seagate.
After 29 years in the business, Seagate on Tuesday announced it is the first first hard disk drive (HDD) manufacturer to ship two billion HDDs. What's especially remarkable about the feat is that half of those shipments came within just the last four years. Seagate credits the milestone to "explosive demand" in mobile, cloud infrastructures, social media, business applications, and from being in a position to serve a variety of consumer markets.
For the first time, Seagate will offer a solid state hybrid drive for the desktop.
Less than a week after saying it would no longer produce 7200 RPM hard drives for notebooks, Seagate today announced the launch of its third generation hybrid drive family, now called SSHD (solid state hybrid drive). There are three new models in all, including one for laptop PCs (Seagate Laptop), a 7mm high drive for Ultrabooks and ultrathins (Laptop Thin), and for the first time, a variant designed for desktops.
