Seagate celebrates a milestone: 2 billion hard disks shipped

Sometimes the numbers speak for themselves. Seagate, a renowned name in storage solutions, is celebrating a milestone: two billion hard disks shipped. Seagate is the first harddisk manufacturer to perform this feat, completing its first billion in 29 years, and its second in just four years.

Just to put this in context: this happened despite the move towards cloud computing and the nose dive in PC shipments. “This is truly an impressive accomplishment and I am proud to lead this company as we celebrate this success,” said Steve Luczo, president, CEO and chairman of Seagate. This achievement is a testament to the commitment of our employees whose relentless dedication and personal pride continue to be the fabric of this company.”

The demand for and continuous creation of digital content is clearly fueling the need for reliable storage.

According to Richard Doherty, research director of the Envisioneering Group, a technology research and consulting company, “By 2015 households which today routinely consume 1TB of data a month are expected to generate 20 times the amount of data than they currently save. Consumer’s continued appetites for securely saving and organizing high-definition multimedia requires higher performance and the most trusted and dependable drives.”
