Thin Hybrid Hard Disk Drives Could be Potent Growth Factor for Storage Industry
A thinner hybrid hard disk drive (HDD) intended to serve as storage media for new computers like Ultrabooks and less bulky than a rival storage form could help the HDD industry in its unremitting battle against tablet devices, according to an IHS iSuppli Storage Space market brief from information and analytics provider IHS.
While the current form of storage for the super-thin Ultrabook laptops produced this year is the hard disk drive containing a cache solid state drive (SSD) element, that form factor at 7 millimeters is still considered too thick and too slow when compared to tablets like the iPad from Apple Inc. Since their appearance on the market two years ago, tablets-with their slim profile and fast "instant-on" capabilities-have eaten mightily into the sales of notebook PCs, whose performance and ease of use have suffered in comparison.
A new and thinner hybrid HDD measuring just 5 millimeters aims to change all that.
