  • Bigger disks don't mean better news for storage administrators
    will therefore be able to pack more data into less space The second technology has the spiffy acronym HAMR short for Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording and involves new materials that can store data in smaller spaces provided they are heated before data is written HAMR drives will therefore include a small laser which zaps the surface of a disk to warm it up before data is written Development of HAMR is already advanced In early 2009 drive maker Seagate demonstrated a 250GB drive using the technology TDK demonstrated HAMR technology at an October 2009 trade show in Japan and mentioned one terabit per square inch densities Hitachi GST the main proponent of Patterned Media has often predicted its debut in 2011 or 2012 Both companies predict that by 2012 or 2013 their technologies will result in disk drives that easily reach ten terabytes By contrast LTO 6 the largest mainstream tape technology currently envisaged will reach 3 6 terabytes uncompressed in 2012 or 2013 With Seagate and Hitachi GST both optimistic that they can use HAMR and or Patterned Media to reach 50 terabyte drives before the 2010s come to an end Big is problematic The storage industry however is not yet certain what to do with very large disk drives Simon Elisha Hitachi Data Systems Chief Technologist for Australia and New Zealand believes they will meet some users needs by occupying less space than their predecessors I was talking to a customer who has decommissioned a storage system and archived the data he explains Only four people will ever need to see the data but when they do they will need it ASAP so they want it to take up a very small amount of space in the data centre That is where people are seeing large drives as having some benefit But size is not important for everyone says Clive Gold EMC s Chief Technology Officer Marketing Today we can give you 75 petabytes of storage in a 19 rack and we are not even using 2 5 inch drives he says The problem today is speed he contends as it will take longer to read data from a large drive than from a smaller device It could take a month to rebuild a 10TB drive in a RAID set a period of time that makes RAID the mainstay of data protection considerably less useful Sean Derrington Director of Symantec s Storage and Availability Management Group also has worries about speed The slowest part of the input output equation is always the mechanical drive Derrington says No matter what the size he says they will all have the same rotational latency which means that a very large hard disk may store more information but will generally be slower at delivering it to applications as the drive will have more work to do to find data Faster hard disks could theoretically solve this problem making larger capacity drives better and delivering data to applications but faster drives consume more
