Akash jain Estimated Read Time: 1 Minutes

Seagate has unveiled its new 7E10 Enterprise hard drive series, with capacities ranging from 2TB to 10TB. It will likely replace the 7E8. If so, you will soon see a new part number like ST6000NM0021B (instead of ST6000NM0021A).

What has changed

  • The highest capacity available on the 7E10 is 10TB. 7E8 had 8TB as the highest capacity
  • The 1TB and 3TB capacities are not present in 7E10.
  • Similar transfer rates for 512n SATA and SAS. With 512e and 4Kn the transfer rates are higher

Everything else remains the same - RPM, cache, workload, MTBF, warranty etc are the same.
The new part numbers are as follows on SATA drives
