HGST Exerting Technologies To Upgrade Storage Efficiency

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST), a subsidiary of Western Digital, has hosted a conference in Taipei, Taiwan, inviting its partners in the Greater China region to showcase its latest standard storage, enterprise storage, cloud computing and Big Data innovations including HGST Virident Space, the HelioSeal platform and Active Archive.

HGST has developed data center-level 10TB hard drives using its HelioSeal and SMR technologies and the 8TB HelioSeal-featured Ultrastar He8. The HelioSeal is able to increase hard drives’ storage space by over 40% and help its hard drives become 30-40% more stable than competitors, HGST noted.

The Active Archive platform is looking to save data in a storage density and efficiency 10 times better than traditional solutions, but the platform is currently still in testing and should be launched in early 2015.
