Seagate 2009 Hard Drives

The introduction of perpendicular bit storage removed a previously insurmountable limit to the maximum capacity of hard drives, as evidenced by Hitachi's near-doubling of last year's ceiling through a 1TB desktop hard drive expected late this year. As part of a keynote presentation celebrating the 50th anniversary of the hard drive, Seagate today outlined a future for its hard drives that would see storage blossom dramatically by 2009. 1.8-inch hard drives - such as those found in the iPod and similar players - should reach 275GB of storage that year simply by scaling existing techniques, said presenter Dr. Mark Kryder. Additionally, 2.5-inch laptop hard drives should triple in capacity to 500GB and desktop-sized drives should reach 2.5TB. The rapid advancement of storage is crucial as games, music, and HD video consume ever larger amounts of data.
