Seagate has announced that it has built its two-billionth hard drive. Seagate was founded in 1979; it took 29 years for them to ship their first billion hard drives. Since then, many applications have greatly increased the demand for storage. Particularly thanks to social media, cloud storage, and business computing, it only took Seagate four years to build another billion hard drives. As such, in 2013, Seagate is celebrating the shipment with its two-billionth hard drive.
"This is truly an impressive accomplishment and I am proud to lead this company as we celebrate this success. This achievement is a testament to the commitment of our employees whose relentless dedication and personal pride continue to be the fabric of this company," said Steve Luczo, CEO, President, and Chairman of Seagate.
