Welcome to the last edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter for 2018. News announcements in this issue include two from the hard disk sector, as Seagate announces successful testing of its HAMR technology on a 16TB HDD - potentially the highest capacity hard drive ever built - and Toshiba extends its line of Performance and NAS drives to include 12TB and 14TB models. Seagate claim to be on target to produce 20TB HDDs during 2020, which would have seemed unachievable just a year or two ago.

Technologies like HAMR and Seagate’s helium-sealed HDDs are allowing drive manufacturers to keep pushing the envelope in terms of drive capacity, even as we as users continue to demand ever more storage space for our data. As IoT continues to grow - especially in industrial environments - we will see exponential increases in the volumes of data being produced by sensors and other automated devices attached to everyday objects, whether that be trains, retail warehouses or factory production lines.

At the same time we will also undoubtedly see continuing capacity improvements in SSD at one end of the storage spectrum, and tape at the other. The end is almost certainly NOT in sight.
