New hard drive from Seagate

February 22, 2024

Seagate Technology has announced the launch of its new Mozaic 3+ hard drive platform, which it says incorporates innovative heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) technology. 

The new data storage platform has areal densities of 3TB+ per platter and there are plans to achieve 4TB+ and 5TB+ per platter in the coming years. 

The Mozaic 3+ platform additionally powers Seagate’s flagship Exos product range, with newly announced capacity points of 30TB and more. 

Areal density important to Seagate

“Seagate is the world’s only hard drive manufacturer with the areal density capability to get to 3TB per platter and with 5TB on the horizon,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate’s CEO. 

“As artificial intelligence (AI) use cases put a premium on raw data sets, more companies are going to need to store all the data they can. 

“To accommodate the resulting masses of data, areal density matters more than ever.”
