From Hollywood’s blockbuster movies, to the photos and videos we share with friends and family on our social networks, from servers that form the backbone of big enterprises, to desktop and notebook computers that fuel our personal productivity, Seagate storage devices, including hard drives, solid–state drives and hybrid drives, are all around us.
They are in video–surveillance equipment that protects people and assets around the clock, as well as in the DVRs, game consoles and media centers that have taken center stage in family rooms around the world. Digital content is ubiquitous, and Seagate is at the heart of how the world creates, distributes, shares and enjoys it.
1 Billion–and Beyond!
Founded in 1979, Seagate is the leading provider of storage devices–in 2008, we became the first hard drive manufacturer to ship 1 billion hard drives–with the industry’s broadest product offering. Our products include 2.5–inch and 3.5–inch hard disk drives, solid state drives and hybrid drives (which incorporate both rotating media and flash memory) for compute–intensive enterprise environments that demand high performance, low–power consumption and proven reliability.
In 2009, Seagate developed its first solid–state drives (SSDs) that leverage non–volatile flash memory instead of spinning magnetic media. Seagate’s first SSDs were designed for enterprise environments utilizing blade and general server applications. We followed that up in 2010 with a solid state hybrid drive for laptops–a product with a unique algorithm that enables the drive to “learn” which files are needed most often and then places them in the drive’s on–board flash memory for lightning–fast access.
Seagate’s products enable high–performance desktop and laptop systems, along with ultraportable devices such as netbooks and thin laptops. We delivered the industry’s first 2TB, 7,200–RPM desktop hard drive, along with the world’s first 7mm, 2.5–inch form factor drive. These innovative storage products deliver super–sized capacities, industry–leading performance, encrypted security features and more.
