Seagate releases massive 12TB hard disk drive

Seagate releases massive 12TB hard disk drive for storing huge files like 4K video
Definitely overkill for storing PDFs

Seagate has revealed a new hard disk drive that can hold a massive 12TB, so if you’re looking for a huge storage option, this is probably it. The BarraCuda Pro is designed for professional creatives who might want to store content with huge sizes like 4K videos and a large trove of RAW photo files. Seagate is also trying to sell its latest big hard drive by riding on the popularity of the AR, VR hype and casting it as a storage solution for these types of media content too. The hard disk drive has a spin speed of 7,200 rpm and features a 256MB cache size for faster loading times. Seagate also announced its new IronWolf 12TB hard drives, which, along with the BarraCuda, is a part of its Guardian Series for high capacity storage. The IronWolf allows multiple users to access the drive — with file sharing and remote access part of its selling points.

For the average user 12TB probably feels like overkill. The largest files I process are RAW files from my DSLR, so it’s not really aimed at everyday users who might just want to store basic pictures or PDF files. The Seagate BarraCuda 12TB Pro will reportedly cost $530 and come with a 5-year limited warranty.

Don't forget to get two more: on site and off site backup. :fg:

I wonder how thick those drives will be?

$13,203 to be more exact. I would have paid $13,000, but I'm not going that high. :-D

When that drive is full, how long to do a chkdsk or full format?

Edited post to reply to myself. I did a Google search and found that it takes 4 hours to 1 week to do a chkdsk for 1TB depending on how many files are on the disk. So a fully populated 12TB disk with with lots of files, hundred of thousands or a million maybe, could take 12 weeks. Bad sectors complicate this timing and could take longer.

Maybe some of our visitors here have done a chkdsk on a 1TB or greater disk and can verify my findings.

Apologies for thread (quasi) hijack.

Also new from IBM :-D (actually this came out in the mid 1980s :-8 I particularly like the "wholly-owned subsidiary" phrase.)

The following is a running dialogue that went on over VMSHARE - a computer conferencing system available to IBM installations with VM Operating Systems. A copy of this dialogue was given to NTSU by some friends at the University of Kentucky Computing Center and was published by NTSU in "BENCHMARKS" the publication of the NTSU Computing Center.

*******************************************************************************
From: 'CYC at MIT-MC (U of MD Cyclotron Labs)' Arpanet. . .

Programming announcement released from IBM:

NEW OPERATING SYSTEM

Because so many users have asked for an operating system of even greater capability than VM, IBM announces the Virtual Universe Operating System - OS/VU.

Running under VU the individual user appears to have not merely a machine of his own, but an entire universe of his own, in which he can set up and take down his own programs, data sets, system networks, personnel, and planetary systems. He need only specify the universe he desires and the OS/VU system generation program (IEHGOD) does the rest. This program will reside in SYS1.GODLIB. The minimum time for this function is 6 days of activity and 1 day of review. In conjunction with OS/VU, all system utilities reside in SYS1.MESSIAH. This program has no parms or control cards as it knows what you want to do when you execute it.

Naturally, the user must have attained a certain degree of sophistication in the data processing field in an efficient utillization of OS/VU is to be
achieved. Frequent call to non-resident galaxies can for instance, lead to unexpected delays in the execution of a job. Although IBM through its wholly-owned subsidiary, the United States, is working on a program to upgrade the speed of light and thus reduce the overhead of extraterrestrial and meta-dimensional paging, users must be careful for the present to stay with in the laws of physics. IBM must charge an additional fee for violations.

OS/VU will run on any IBM x0xx equipped with Extended WARP Feature. Rental is twenty million dollars per cpu/nanosecond.

Users should be aware that IBM plans to migrate all existing systems and hard-ware to OS/VU as soon as our engineers effect one output that is (conceptually) error free. This will give us a base to develope an even more powerful OS, target date 2001, designated Virtual Reality'. OS/VR is planned to allow the user to migrate to totally unreal universes. To aid the user in identifying the difference between Virtual Reality' and Real Reality', a file containing a linear record of multisensory total records of successive moments of now will be established. Its name will be SYS1.EST.

For more information contact your IBM data processing representative.

Science fiction! Along those lines, take a look at the November 2017 issue of Discover magazine. It talks about sending humans to other worlds by light waves. "Simply transmit about 2 gigabytes of information needed to specify a person's DNA and incubating a baby to be raised by AI, or the AI could assemble quarks and electrons into full-grown people who would have all the memories scanned from their originals back on Earth."

I saw this on TV last night. I thought the woman in the wheelchair swimming around underwater was really cool.
