Western Digital Announces 8 TB Drives, Dedicated To The General Public

Western Digital announces the launch of a new type of hard drives, dedicated to the general public, which has an impressive capacity of 8 TB.

The HDD in question is part of the Western Digital Red series, meaning it is intended mostly for network-attached storages (NAS), so if you’re planning to build one just to all the videos of cats from the internet on it, it’s good to know that there won’t be any obstacles on the capacity part.

Western Digital’s 8 TB drives are built using a technology similar to that used by Hitachi for its storage solutions, and to be more precise, is based on helium.

The disks are kept in a sealed and insulated revolve and are spinning in a much less dense atmosphere than normal, resulting in a reduction of the heat generated, better efficiency, lower energy consumption and a way lower chance to explode.

Regarding the price, it won’t be cheap, but if you need 8 TB of storage for anything, probably you won’t be bothered to spend 300 dollars on a single HDD. And honestly, I don’t think you will need other HDDs in the near future, since 8 TB is a lot of storage space, even for the clips with cats.
