3 Big data security analytics techniques

Hard drive maker Western Digital is finally following Seagate et al into the 1in HDD market in a bid to exploit exploding demand for mobile phone, PDA and MP3 player storage.

WD said it expects to ship its debut 1in product in Q2. The 3600rpm, 12ms access-time unit will initially offer up to 6GB of storage capacity, and use a CompactFlash II interface.

The company said it would add an anti-skip system to the drives to improve their reliability on the move. And with battery powered devices in mind, the new units will feature "advanced" power management facilities, WD claimed.

WD did not provide pricing for the product. ®
