It seems like Seagate is almost near to achieving the goal of producing 20TB drives by 2020 because the company is in a serious mood to launch 14TB and 16TB hard drives over the next 18 months.
Till now, the capacity of Seagate’s hard drive is 10TB. According to Stephen Luczo, the company’s CEO, “A 12TB drive based on helium technology is being tested, and the feedback is positive.”
If the company is successful in making a 16TB hard drive, then it is surely going to be the largest magnetic disk ever. Also, this drive by Seagate will be a perfect data storage solution for enterprises and consumers who have to deal with a large amount of data on daily basis.
