  • Future of mechanic based hard drives. HAMR or BPM?

    Hard disk drives based on moving parts and storing information on magnetic plates, looks have reached its capacity limits, reaching density 1-1.5 terabits per square inch.. On the another hand, hard disk manufactures concentrated their attention on solid state technologies (SSD) providing significiant performance boost, but lagging behind with capacity. From apart it looks like poker game, guessing what will go next.
