OUR VISION: CRAFTING THE DATASPHERE
Our global team leads the way with unrivaled technology.
We’ve defined a recording technology (HAMR) that provides highest
areal density.
OUR GOAL: MAXIMIZE PERFORMANCE
Our data solutions enable you to push the boundaries of performance.
MACH.2 Multi Actuator technology doubles IOPS performance in a single hard drive by enabling parallelism of data flows.
OUR TOMORROW: FORGING NEW PATHS
Our future is influenced by collaboration.
Take advantage of the most advanced technologies, manufacturing, and supply chain.
