Need more Storage? Seagate Ships World’s First 8TB Hard Drives

Movies, music and pictures – we are constantly adding to our digital library. Especially as the quality improves, it seems we can never have enough storage.

Seagate has now come out and released the world’s first 8TB hard drive. To put things in perspective, you could save over 1,700 DVDs (4.7 GB each) on a single hard drive!

You can also look at storing your data in the cloud, there are plenty of providers out there and recently we compared OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Mega, iCloud and a number of other providers.

Here is what the company had to say:

“As our world becomes more mobile, the number of devices we use to create and consume data is driving an explosive growth in unstructured data. This places increased pressure on cloud builders to look for innovative ways to build cost-effective, high capacity storage for both private and cloud-based data centers,” said Scott Horn, Seagate vice president of marketing. “Seagate is poised to address this challenge by offering the world’s first 8TB HDD, a ground-breaking new solution for meeting the increased capacities needed to support the demand for high capacity storage in a world bursting with digital creation, consumption and long-term storage.”
