Also known as a hard disk drive, HDD, or fixed disk, a hard drive is used for data storage and works using a rigid disk that is coated with a magnetic material and rotates rapidly. Using magnetic heads on an arm which are paired to the disk, data can be both stored and accessed in any order and even when the device is turned off.
First introduced into the IT industry in 1956, hard drives today have come a long way with respect to their 60-year-old predecessors. Not only has the capacity of the hard drives to store information increased by two million times, but its physical volume, weight, and access time have decreased dramatically, along with its cost (from $9.2K/MB to less than $0.05/GB). This is partially due to the advance of technology as a whole, but much of it has to do with a competing atmosphere with several other companies, who are all trying to increase storage and decrease space while consistently lowering the price.
Founded in 1992, NetApp is one of the newer, more innovative data storage companies in the world, ranking on the Fortune 500 list and 2nd in the world for market capitalization. In this way, it is constantly dedicated to provide its consumers with better, faster equipment that has higher storage capacity at a lower price—a quality which NetApp has in common with Server Worlds.
