14TB performance reviews

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm curious if there have been any performance reviews comparing 14TB drives to 12 or 10TB drives.

If I've read correctly, there are three 14TB drives. But I don't think any are shipping. Maybe sampling to OEM partners, but ebay and the usual stores have zip.

HGST: 14TB SMR drive - Hs14.

Toshiba: 14TB conventional drive - MG07ACA series.

Seagate: plans to introduce a 14TB SMR drive, but hasn't announced it yet? I could swear this got mentioned somewhere, but can't find a link.

Seagate is working on it but they won't be ready until they finish development of a dual head unit that supposedly runs cooler and gives back some performance gains.

We actually have the manufacturing process online for HAMR drives, in capacities 20TB+, with shipments to key customers before this year is out, and hitting the public in 2019.

Multi-actuator tech is in the works as well, and we are seeing what kind of useful implementations that can be applied to, in combination with HAMR and other tech, etc. We recently did a demo at CES 2018.

Here are some links about what we've got in the works you may want to check out:
