Ultrastar Hs14 – World’s First 14TB HDD by Western Digital

Western Digital Ultrastar Hs14

Western Digital has launched worlds first 14TB enterprise HDD Ultrastar Hs14 under its HGST brand.

According to the manufacturer HGST Ultrastar Hs14 is filled with helium instead of regular air meaning less drag on the platters. It features 4th Gen HelioSeal technology and uses 2nd Gen host-managed SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) on eight platters to hit that huge capacity.

The drive will be consuming only 5.2W when its idle & 6.2W while its in use, that’s 60 percent lower idle watts per TB than an 8TH air filled drive. The drive is available in SATA (6Gbps) and SAS (12Gbps) models.

No word yet on price, but expect it to be expensive.
The Hs14 is currently shipping to select OEMs and comes with a five-year limited warranty.
