Selecting a Hard Drive is Easy
Hard drives or disk drives – are data storage devices that store digital data on rapidly rotating platters (discs) with magnetic surfaces.
There are many types of hard disk drives available now, including External Hard Drives, Internal Hard Drives, Firewire External Hard Drives, SATA Hard Drives and IDE Drives. External hard drives are a great solution if you’re running out of space on your desktop or laptop, need to back up important data or easily transfer data. Notebook & Pocket drives are excellent for portability. For businesses, we recommend Network-attached storage servers (NAS). NAS have a lot of storage capacity & sharing abilities, and can be remotely accessed by multiple computers.
There are two types of external hard drives – Desktop Hard Drives and Notebook/Laptop Hard Drives. Desktop drives are designed to stay in one place, and require a power adapter. They can store 6TB+ of data. If you’re shopping for a Desktop drive, look for one that has a built-in fan, as the extra cooling will extend the life of your drive. Check out storage brands we love including Seagate, WD, Buffalo, Axiom, Hitachi, HP, Lenovo, Fantom, among others. You can also buy the components – hard drive, hard drive enclosure and cooling unit – and build your own storage solution.
How to Choose Storage
Some hard drives, like solid state drives (SSD) & solid state hybrid drives (SSDH) use NAND flash technology to increase computer speed, system performance, application loads and overall system responsiveness.
