Hosted PBX serves small and medium sized businesses in a variety of ways which include offering the business an abundant number of services. These services range from flexible storage, to disaster recovery operations to improved communications and best of all, great savings. Currently, cloud hosted PBX two fundamental features:

  1. Allow access to files and information to employees from anywhere as long they have a verified connection
  2. Protection against black outs and other unforeseen events that end up purging important files and documents  

In order to run their operations effectively, several large capacity hard drives are required as your company will not be the only business out there using the amazing aforementioned features presented by cloud hosted PBX.

This is where Seagate is able to lend a helping hand; storage count. Not only are their hard drives able to store sufficient amounts of information thanks to the large storage capacities, these hard drives also come with added contingencies that are able to protect the drives from file corruption and keep them long lasting. In order to narrow the gap between storage requirements and storage capacities, Seagate will release 8TB and 10TB hard drives in the next 12 months. Seagate’s previous flagship storage hard drives; which were sporting a massive 6 TB of storage were met with positive reviews in terms of performance, durability, temperature and power consumption, and became a favorite product where cloud storage was concerned. This immediately prompted CEO Steve Luczo to immediately start mass production of 8 and 10 TB hard drives, which will be priced at very affordable levels.

Seagate plans to retain the use of Helium filled hard drives in its upcoming high capacity hard drives. The main reason why the company is doing this is because Helium filled hard drives not only run 4 degrees Centigrade cooler than regular hard drives, they also have a 49 percent reduced power consumption per terabyte efficiency, which is good for hosting companies as well as small and medium sized businesses. The lower temperature will increase the hard drives’ longevity and decreased power consumption will not increase the hard drives’ temperature to intolerable levels as keep the indirect costs (overheads) such as electricity to a minimum. Furthermore, the fact that Seagate will be providing larger capacity hard drives would mean that hosting companies will not have to procure unnecessary equipment to store smaller capacity hard drives when they can reduce their overall costs and procure large capacity hard drives which will occupy a smaller area (an 8 TB hard drive will take up a modicum amount of space compared to 4 2 TB hard drives).

The added savings will allow cloud hosting companies to invest their capital in storage protection systems such as backup power supplies that will continue to keep the system running even after there has been a power outage. Spontaneous blackouts can occur and since cloud hosted PBX systems are popular for their disaster recovery systems, both small and medium sized businesses can benefit from this. Large capacity hard drives are just the beginning to what Seagate is bringing to the table. Pretty soon, larger capacity hard drives is slimmer chassis will be present in servers, boasting greater performance, durability and of course efficiency.
