That's [either 3 or 6]*7 platters*4TB=[either 84TB or 168TB] per drive. NAND really needs to get cheaper, or ReRAM needs to get here faster.

The article said 4 terabits (500 Gigabytes/inch), not terabytes. You still get some massive storage on each drive, and then fill them up with helium for good measure.

I don't remember which company it was. But one of the big HDD companies was working on a technology where they filled the drives with helium. The lower atmospheric pressure allowed for more platters to fit in the same space. Also allowed them to spin faster. This also made the drives completely pressurised, meaning they could finally be lowered into one of those oil tanks, that people build computers in. Got to find that again...

I can't wait when the time comes, that HDD will surpass any SSD's, these SSD's are damn expensive.
