Western Digital begins shipping the Ultrastar 12TB HeDrive.
April/2017 - These He/Drives are typically rather expensive. (No price yet, but the 10Tb version retails for about $510). Still, good to know it's out there I guess. They're supposedly twice as fast as an equivalent Air/Drive. And the tech will no-doubt trickle down eventually.

I'll definitely be looking in to these.
they're so expensive they should be gold coated I mean they're the price of one of these Enterprise class things It should have warp 9 considering its space age design the corners on it. If we're lucky it'll be on ebay for the price of new 8TB models in next 5 10 years.
