Seagate has launched a new series of enterprise HDDs that spin at 15,000 rounds per minute (RPM). The 2.5" drives will be available in capacities of 300, 600 and 900GB.

Why don’t they make more 8tb HDD instead…I could care less about 900gb. I need 8TB HDD or 8tb SSD. They need to get their heads out of the rear.

Capacities that can be hit by SSD, the point of Raptor style hard disks has surely gone away in the face of SSD competition


#4

It was going so fast it right past me

This is not a consumer product and has pretty much no value to any consumer as most of us dont have a 12Gbit SAS in our systems.

But when it comes to enterprise it could make a lot of difference in access speed, plus it looks like there is still a market in the enterprise world for this kind of drives.

[QUOTE=vroom;2782752]But when it comes to enterprise it could make a lot of difference in access speed, plus it looks like there is still a market in the enterprise world for this kind of drives.[/QUOTE] Access speed is orders of magnitude better with SSD drives, so I also have difficulty seeing the point of this drive.

You might have some difficulty seen any value but they continue making them, so there is a value for this kind of drives :slight_smile:

If they actually sell a lot of them, they are right. If not, they are wrong. :wink:

Problem here is SSD is the way of the future…isn’t Seagate suppose to think of the future??? HDD regardless enterprise or consumer unless it is 8tb HDD 3.5inch isn’t going to satisfy the users. A 8tb SSD, would make others get off their fat butts to get moving on SSD tech.

I do believe HDDs last longer than SSDs, since there is no limit as to how many times a hard drive sector can be overwritten. So, something like this could be used for long-term storage, making it especially attractive for anyone who uses it to back up important data.

Also, HDDs are cheaper than SSDs. Therefore, enterprises operating on a tight budget are more likely to look into HDDs like this one than SSDs, at least until the price of SSDs comes down to the level of HDDs.

A spindle speed of 15k usually is the problem concerning durability - I would not touch any 15k HDD.

It’s called cash cow you will keep replacing those failed 15K HDD when 5400rpm works just fine. I got 5400HDD and they are working just fine matter of fact only my SSD is the Main and the rest are 5400HDD and one 500gig SSD for image backup and all are happy family. But they should really make more higher tb SSD that will improve cheap lifespan and get the tech our faster to the consumers to lower the prices if they really want us to move into the Future.

I would not run any high resolution game from a 5400rpm HDD due to latency issues but for general/archive storage those HDDs are fine.

I am running SSHDs here and don’t really have a need for any SSD

That’s what I do SSD for C: and running program and Games like Steam are stored on the other SSD drive. 8th HDD seagate already says “Archive” drive for a reason. Hybrid to me is a gimmick as they don’t lower prices or help to get better SSD drives to market and lower prices. They just help to pad their bottom line is all.

Not sure about Gimmick - copy speed between two hybrids is only exceeded by SSD and a 1TB hybrid is by far cheaper than a SSD of same size.

You pay for it in the price when you could use it for a SSD drive. That is the gimmick. They could use the SSD money for R&D to make better SSD but this is about the bottom line.
