Western Digital Launches 14TB Hard Drive for Enterprise and Servers

Western Digital has launched world’s first 14TB hard drive but they are strictly designed for enterprise setups and servers because they are host-managed devices.

The HGST Ultrastar Hs14 is the new model which is powered by Helioseal technology. The insides of the HDD is surrounded by helium gas which ensures the drive platters run smoothly and support the moving parts by removing any friction.

It also uses Shingled Magnetic Recording, SMR on eight platters where data is written overlapping each other in a shingle form. The design ensures longevity of the product as Western Digital promise 2.5 million hours of usage, even when it is running 24/7.

The Western Digital HGST Ultrastar Hs14 is available with SATA and SAS configurations. The former supports 6GBps transfer rate while SAS supports 12GBps with 512MB of data buffer and can transfer files at 233MBps.

The Hs14 with 14TB storage space is not the only device because Seagate is working on a 16TB hard drive set for launch in 2018 and a 20TB HDD by 2020.
