Seagate Presents 10TB Hard Disk, Physicists Develop 10TB Storage Medium Made Of Chlorine-Atoms
Seagate presented a hard disk with a capacity of 10 TB, the same capacity with a storage medium shown by researchers in the Netherlands.
Seagate’s new models have a total capacity of 10 TB, a number that meets all storage needs. All models which belong to the Seagate Barracuda Pro, IronWolf and SkyHawk series will become available in that capacity.
It is worth noting that such large capacities in a home desktop can turn it into a household fileserver. The price, at this stage, is not low, as the Barracuda Pro model costs $540 in the US, but is expected to fall as they become more common in the market.
On the other hand, a group of physicists from the Netherlands developed an innovative storage medium comprising of chlorine atoms located in a small metal surface. In this storage medium, the researchers fromDelft University of Technology save up to 10TB of data on the surface of 1 square centimetre.
The only drawback here is that this medium requires keeping the temperature at -198 degrees Celsius. Nevertheless, it is an important step towards the shrinkage of storage media.
