30TB hard drives with HAMR tech are now a reality, and I’m thrilled

I’m constantly running out of storage, and while I used 12TB and 14TB drives predominantly in the past, that wasn’t sufficient anymore, so I decided to switch to a new NAS server. I turned to the DiskStation DS1823xs+, and slotted in four 18TB HAT5310 drives alongside an assortment of Seagate Exos and IronWolf drives I’m testing long-term, bringing the total storage to 114TB.

The addition of Seagate’s excellent Exos X24 24TB drive increased the addressable storage to 138TB, and for once, I’m actually ahead of my storage requirements — I don’t see myself filling these drives for at least another year or so. That timing works out well, because in that time, we should start seeing retail availability of Seagate’s next-gen Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) drives.
