At the OCP Summit 2017, Seagate revealed it's on track to ship 12TB helium-filled enterprise hard disks in the second quarter of this year. This 12TB 3.5" HDD promises the lowest power consumption in the industry and is designed for cloud infrastructure.
Seagate’s new 12TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD offers the lowest power consumption and lowest weight in the industry. The drive can accommodate 550TB workloads annually and has a mean time between failure of 2.5 million hours. The drive is designed to operate 24/7 for 5 years, making it ideal for even the most rigorous enterprise data center environments.

Key benefits and improvements include:
  • Highly scalable hard drive storage that is rapidly deployable for maximum performance and energy efficiency for Open Compute Project (OCP) platforms
  • 50% higher capacity, which enables hyperscale customers to deploy over 10PB of high performance storage in a single 42U rack for the first time – maintaining current space, weight, and power consumption profiles
  • 21% increase in IOPs performance/watt perfect for next generation eco-friendly infrastructures
  • 20% increase in enhanced caching performance, which results in faster access to unstructured data
  • Seagate 12TB He HDD

    Western Digital revealed a 12TB helium-filled HDD in December 2016 and said it would ship this product in the first half of 2017.
