HAMR: Hard drive with next generation capability

As the Age of Data emerges, the insatiable voracity of more storage capacity accelerates at an unbridled pace. Our advanced engineering team has developed HAMR (from "Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording", which means thermo-assisted magnetic recording) in order to approach the next stage in the greatest capacities. According to the Advanced Storage Technology Consortium (ASTC), HAMR will be the next leading storage technology to increase the amount of data storage in the area available for storing data, known as the "area density". of a disk. This increase in area density will help boost the development of hard drive products and their boom in the next decade.
