Together with the launch of the 8TB Ultrastar DC HC320, Western Digital announces it's phasing out the HGST brand. WD bought the HGST (formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies) assets in 2012.
We are now shipping the latest product in our capacity enterprise HDD product line, the 8TB Ultrastar® DC HC320, providing a new high capacity point in our lower capacity lineup of air-based products. As part of the unification of our new Western Digital brand, the Ultrastar DC HC320 is being introduced under the Western Digital Data Center (DC) segment branding. It was announced earlier this year as the HGST Ultrastar 7K8, as a companion to the Ultrastar 7K6.
