The 10TB HDD will arrive in the 3.5-inch form factor on the SATA 6Gbps bus, 128MB of cache, a five-year warranty, two million hour meantime between failure (MTBF) rating, and Instant Secure Erase features. Vice President of Product Marketing for HGST, Brendan Collins, said: "With ever-increasing pressures on corporate and cloud data centers to improve storage efficiencies and reduce costs, HGST is at the forefront delivering a revolutionary new solution that significantly improves data center TCO on virtually every level - capacity, power, cooling and storage density - all in the same 3.5-inch form factor".

Collins continued: "Not only is our new Ultrastar helium hard drive helping customers solve data center challenges today, our mainstream helium platform will serve as the future building block for new products and technologies moving forward. This is a huge feat, and we are gratified by the support of our customers in the development of this platform".

The division of Western Digital is planning to launch the 10TB HDD next month, with rumors circling that they are also working on a new six-platter version that would feature 1.66TB per platter.
