Earlier this month, at the Wells Fargo Technology, Media and Telecommunications Summit, Siva Sivaram, president of technology and strategy at Western Digital, revealed that the company sees a path to HDDs with a capacity of up to 50TB:
“The 18 TB product that is going out this December will use a variant of the MAMR technology. We are agnostic as to which technology we will have to succeed in the long term. We will introduce the right technology at the right point when it gets to 24 TB and 30 TB. We see a path to get to 50 TB in our hard drive roadmap. As we go to 50 TB, we will introduce the right technology at the point when it actually makes sense.”
