Seagate's 10TB enterprise drive ships in quantity


Seagate's latest Enterprise 3.5 Capacity hard drive is now available for general purchase.

Originally released in January but only to selected customers such as Alibaba, the 10TB Seagate Enterprise 3.5 Capacity hard drive  is now generally available.

It is currently the highest capacity drive available worldwide, according to the company.

Advanced caching algorithms improve performance, Seagate PowerChoice technology helps reduce power and cooling costs while the drive is idling, and the PowerBalance feature improves efficiency by optimising the IOPS delivered per watt of power consumed.

Filling a hard drive with helium has several advantages. The gas's low density reduces vibration (permitting greater storage density on a platter of given size) and reduces the power needed to spin the platters, while its thermal conductivity limits increases in device temperature.

"Our new 10TB drive boasts advanced write caching capabilities for better performance and the lowest weight and the best energy efficiency in the industry- making this new drive is a real game changer," said vice president of enterprise products John Morris.

"Now shipping in volume to our global strategic customers like Ciara and Supermicro, we are pleased to bring this drive to market with the knowledge that it provides highly-valued and unprecedented performance for our customers' hyperscale solutions."

"Seagate's 10TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD expands Supermicro's hyperscale server and storage solutions optimized for cloud solution providers," said Supermicro vice president of marketing and business development Don Clegg.

"Seagate helium-based high capacity drives provide a robust foundation for building OpenStack cloud infrastructure, delivering maximum performance, scalability and capacity density at the lowest overall TCO."
