    Seagate's HDD roadmap teases 100TB drives by 2025

    And the firm says its laser-powered HAMR tech will enable 20TB HDDs before 2020.

    That's great and all, but unless there's a massive leap in drive performance, rebuilding RAID arrays is going to take an age. I can see everyone having to run at least RAID-6, probably even higher to protect against double disk failures during a resilver.

    You're missing out on the ginormous E-Peen potential. Imagine 100TB of pure E-Peen. Terrifying.

    What about solid state, capacity growing all the time and prices coming, down, just needs the big players to grow a pair, increase production capacity, storage capacity and drop the price to kill off spinners !

    I'll take ten - makes sense to hit the 1PB mark after all.

    How achievable that would actually be at that time due to cost would obviously remain to be seen, as would figuring out what to store on them - other than having it for e-peen or "just in case I need it even though I probably won't" purposes obviously.

    It took my PC 21 hours to consolidate 120GB of free space on a 2TB hard drive over the weekend. I dread to think how long optimisation/maintenance tasks would take on a 100TB drive.

    Re: Seagate's HDD roadmap teases 100TB drives by 2025

    This is probably for cloud storage providers though. It should be a much easier upgrade from then to change over the existing disks,instead of having to install more racks or whole servers,as this would mean more space,power consumption and cooling.

    I switched to RAID10 - not entirely because of this issue, but partly with it in mind.

    On the plus side, increased capacities mean that it becomes easier to use alternatives to RAID-5.

    I actually don't think you'll see the end of spinners anytime soon. Price per TB is a LOT cheaper on HDD, as a business which would you opt for? Speed isn't the sole metric companies make decisions on.

    SSD's no longer come in 32GB capacity when comparing to cheap HDD. You can get 120 or sometimes even 250GB SSD for about same price as bottom end HDD. Which one you would use in a company office box?

    It really does depend on what you want. If you might need to do an emergency salvage of the data then HDD might be better for you if you don't need the performance of the SSD. There's a market for both for a reason although I would agree that the market has been artificially meddled with from what I can see (although I'm more than willing to hear arguments against this point as I'm sure there are people on here more knowledgable than I on the subject).

    SSDs are getting there but there are some advantages still to the old-fashioned spinning coaster.

    If the prices were the same and I wanted to build a bog standard office PC I'd go for an SSD any time. No question.

    the current high capacity SSD is 60TB ....next five years we will blazing past 150tb. Placing multiple 2TB chips is simpler than a single 100TB disc

    Where are you even seeing 60TB SSDs?
