When it comes to computers, internal memory, and external storage is among the most important features that users check. Demand for storage is driven by several factors, including Big Data, user-generated content, the Internet-of-Things (IoT), and enterprise usage. Despite the introduction of cost-efficient solid state drives (SSD), many people and data centers globally continue to invest in it.
Based on research featured by The University Of Sydney, there are over 2.5 billion hard drives currently estimated to be in use worldwide.
“If you lined up all the world’s hard drives back-to-back, they would go around the globe five times,” said lead author Zibin [...]
Seagate launched the world’s fastest 2.5-inch hard disk drive with 15 000RPM, called: Seagate Enterprise Performance 15K HDD. This Seagate drive is meant for enterprise users and cloud data centers.
The drive is available in four capacities: 146GB; 300GB; 600GB and biggest 900GB, which is relatively small amount of storage. This Enterprise HDD is optimized for critical workloads and delivers industry’s highest sustained data transfer rate up to 315MB/s.
As Western Digital announced in this morning’s press release – “However ‘unsexy’ the world of data is currently…”
Yes, external hard drives usually aren’t sexy, and Western Digital (WD) wants to change that now by upgrading the design for their two most famous external hard drive lines – WD My Book and WD My Passport.
Western Digital announced a new hard drive to their WD Gold line of enterprise hard drives. The new WD Gold 10TB (WD101KRYZ) is mainly built for modern storage systems. New WD Gold features high-capacity HelioSeal helium technology, power efficient enterprise datacenter environments.Western Digital Gold 10TB Datacenter Hard Disk Drive Class SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch Form Factor (WD101KRYZ)
For a while now bundles and special editions for Microsoft is a good way to sell, basically one product many times, just by changing its design and saying ”We will never sell this bundle again.”
Now they are reaching new heights by offering three Xbox One S Gears of War 4 bundles. Yes, that’s right, three bundles for one game.
When Xbox 360 came out, it had just 4GB hard drive and supported external storage up to 32GB. That sounds ridiculous now, newest AAA Xbox games can take up to 50GB, and I’m not counting updates and DLC.
Later there were other Xbox 360 storage options available – 4GB; 20GB; 60GB; 120GB; 250GB; 320GB and now from late 2015 there’s also Xbox 360 500GB console available. Well, 500GB is something closer to today’s reality, but still, it will fill up quite fast. Notice, that very often Xbox bundle deals are much cheaper than Xbox console alone.
