Disk Drives - Product Reviews

As technology advances squeeze more and more data onto disk drives, reliability and power savings grow in importance

It’s getting more difficult to cram more bits of data onto the same size disk drives, but storage has continued to follow Moore’s Law, doubling capacity every two years. Yet more storage space per disk means more chance for errors occurring. Prices continue to drop for hard disk drives, as well as for solid-state drives (technically not disks because they don’t contain spinning parts), though SSDs are still too expensive for many organizations. SAS and SATA drives are outpacing the use of older FC drives in tiered storage systems, and used in combination with SSDs they can offer performance gains, especially for transactional applications.

The 3.5” form factor drive still maintains a large market share, but there’s a gradual transition to 2.5” drives, which are more energy efficient. Saving power is a trend in disk storage, as the push toward green data centers continues. Emerging power-saving technologies include capabilities that allow for selective spindown on drives that aren’t in use. And data crunching techniques like compression and deduplication, along with encryption, are moving onto the hard drive itself. The use of RAID keeps changing, as RAID 6 or object-based RAID may make more sense for large capacity disks than previously popular RAID 5.


Best-in-Class Storage Disks and Drives Features:

  • Embraces green storage trends, with intelligence devices that can perform automatic spindown when drives aren’t in use
  • Increasingly reliable disks, even in large multi-terabyte capacities
  • Offer features like deduplication or encryption embedded within drives, and capacity to use SSD, SAS or SATA in some combination


Top Considerations before Buying Storage Disks and Drives Products:

Looking ahead in the storage disk and drive market involves a continued push toward more capacity for less money, but reliability and lower error rates will come into play too.

New technologies to expand disk capacity may include bit-patterned media (BPM), heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) and microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) to keep moving disks into the terabyte-size range as current perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) reaches its technical limits. Encryption and other advanced features will keep moving into HDDs. The 2.5” form factor continues gaining popularity, as do SAS and SATA drives and SSD, including RAM SSD.

Storage Disks and Drives
Definition: Disk storage is a general category of storage mechanisms, in which data are digitally recorded by various electronic, magnetic, optical, or mechanical methods on a surface layer deposited of one or more planar, round and rotating platters. A disk drive is a device implementing such a storage mechanism with fixed or removable media; with removable media the device is usually distinguished from the media as in compact disc drive and the compact disc.
