imagine how much time you will need scanning for bad sectors on that 20 Tera Harddisk
... or how much time you will need to write zeros on it to wipe it out lol ...
They could just store encrypted data, like some flash drives, and then you just have to wipe the key.
The companies are competing in size and not competing in I/O sadly
Yes, because that's what flash is for.
If they can make 20 Terabytes 7200 RPM Drives , using the same density and smaller platters , they can make at least 6 Terabytes 15K RPM using the same density now
I doubt it's that simple.
.. what is stopping them ? 2.5 inch 15K Consumer level drives please ANYONE ?
You're nuts. OR a troll, but I'm going with nuts.
the last one who did it was the WD Raptor
I got a sweet deal on a 500 GB Raptor, back in the day. I replaced it with flash, years ago, and never looked back.
