Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate on the launch cited, “Customers today need storage solutions to support a div
erse, and sometimes very specialized, set of applications and workload requirements.” “In designing our products, we look closely at the type of data being stored, performance needs, power requirements, environmental operating conditions, network topologies, uptime demand and more, to ensure our customers receive the right storage technology for the job. This thoughtful approach has enabled us to deliver the most compelling 8TB portfolio available in the industry.”

Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD— World-Class Reliability Meets High-Capacity

Within the cloud and traditional enterprise markets, businesses need high capacity and extremely reliable data storage solutions. Seagate’s 8TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD drive addresses these needs by incorporating proven conventional magnetic recording hard drive technology, backed by nine generations of data center innovation. Enterprise customers also want world class performance from their storage solutions and the 8TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD delivers for them with a 100 percent increase in random read/write performance compared to previous generations, driving a vast improvement in IT performance across the enterprise.

“Supermicro’s wide array of SuperServer and SuperStorage solutions deliver unrivaled performance, efficiency, density and reliability for enterprise, data center, cloud and HPC environments,” said Don Clegg, vice president of marketing and business development at Supermicro. “With Seagate’s new portfolio of 8TB 3.5” Enterprise and Kinetic HDD we can cost-effectively address expanding web scale storage requirements with the most advanced Green Computing platforms on the market.”

Enterprise NAS HDD— Enterprise Capacity Meets SMBs

Small- and medium-sized businesses require high reliability too, but they also need storage solutions that can scale to support enterprise class performance as business mandates change and the company grows. Seagate’s 8TB Enterprise NAS HDD takes conventional hard drive recording technology to the next level by providing one third more storage density for any tower or rack mount solution compared to the previous 6TB generation drive. This density advantage translates to fewer drives without sacrificing capacity, reducing power consumption and saving valuable space in servers and data centers to help improve IT cost structures and service value to the organization.

Kinetic HDD— High-Capacity, Reduced Cloud Economics

For organizations making the transition to the cloud with an eye to leveraging open source innovation, the 8TB Kinetic HDD focuses on total cost of ownership (TCO) by emphasizing scaled-out storage and rapid deployment in data centers. In cases where archiving data is a priority, emerging technologies such as Shingled Magnetic Recording can be of strategic and business value. Combined with the Kinetic Open Storage platform, this storage solution can change the TCO equation.


All drives are currently sampling to select customers with wide scale availability planned for late this year:
