Seagate has announced that it has begun shipping the worlds first 8TB mechanical hard drives. The extremely large capacity drives will benefit consumers of large amounts of data such as data centers and enterprise servers. As more storage will be able to fit into a smaller space, power and cooling requirements can be lowered. VP of Marketing Scott Horn described some of the motivations behind the move, "As our world becomes more mobile, the number of devices we use to create and consume data is driving an explosive growth in unstructured data." In addition to the massive amount of offered storage the drives also offer "enterprise-class reliability and support for archive workloads" with "multi-drive RV tolerance for consistent enterprise-class performance in high density environments."
