The storage requirements of users are never ending. I remember when I bought my first computer back in 1994, it had a hard drive of 20 MB only - but at that time I felt elvated to have this big HDD.

But now times have changed. From MBs to GBs and now from a couple of TBs, we are sky rocketing to storage capacities as big as 12 TBs. Yes, Seagate, one of the leading HDD manufacturers has recently unveiled a wide range of high end HDD with capacity up to 12 TBs.
