Default Hitachi paves the way to 24TB disks

The high-density technology, which equates to an areal density of 3.9TBdot/inch², could increase the storage capacity of high-end 3.5in hard-drives to a whopping 24TB. If the company can get the new format to market quickly enough and cheaply enough, it should guarantee disk's dominance over SSD for high-capacity storage situations for quite some time to come.

As well as improved capacities, an increase in data density should, in theory, comes with an increase in data transfer speed and a decrease in seek time - just in time to take advantage of the slowly increasing support for the SATA 6Gb/sec standard.
