The hard drive industry has enabled many digital applications to succeed, due to ever increasing storage capacities, improved reliability and performance, continually decreasing cost per gigabyte, and perpetual development to “tune” drives to perform in evolving use cases. Since we have spent our careers in the industry, we have seen all the mainstream applications that use drives and we understand what each application needs from the drive to perform to expectations, given the budget. We have put together content on some of the most common applications that benefit from using “industrial” grade or specific use case drives.
