Seagate’s inaugural Datasphere 2020 meeting provided the ideal chance for the storage giant to unveil some interesting new products and systems.
And the company duly sent, confirming what we all wished to know: that the world’s largest tough disk travel, the Exos 20+, will start in December 2020.
The inside HDD will be the to start with to arrive with HAMR technological know-how (which boosts capability) and MACH2 actuator technological know-how, created to retain effectiveness SLA as capability scales to the 50TB.
Dr. Dave Mosley, the CEO of Seagate, also dropped in two notably fascinating slides, the to start with of which displays a TCO preserving of just about a third when storing 1PB on 18TB, compared to 8TB.
The second showed the relative value per PB when working with a 20TB HAMR, compared to a 50TB model, and demonstrated that the immediate and continuous adoption of the best-capability tough drives by hyperscalers provides a “sustained expense gain”.
With that in mind, Seagate has also launched CORTX – an open-resource S3-appropriate object storage software-defined storage system – as perfectly as a reference architecture named Lyve Drive rack that can deliver up to 106 drives (or two.12PB) per rack node.
Previously this month, both equally Seagate and WD launched 18TB tough disk drives dependent on CMR and PMR systems. It will be fascinating to see whether or not cloud backup professional BackBlaze utilizes these most up-to-date high capability drives for its well-known cloud storage support, providing us early responses on effectiveness and reliability.
