Hitachi 1-Terabyte Drive In 2007, 2TB In 2009

Hitachi today celebrated the 50th anniversary of the hard drive with the announcement of its plan to release a 1-Terabyte hard drive next year.

Today also marks the company’s achievement of 345 gigabits per square inch using perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology. This means that by 2009, Hitachi can produce a 2-Terabyte 3.5-inch desktop drive, and a 400GB 2.5-inch notebook drive or a 200GB 1.8-inch drive for PDAs and media players.

Hitachi researchers have expressed optimism that the hard drive will continue to grow with PMR technology. They project a 25-Terabyte drive by 2016.
