Abstract: In this seminar we will talk about the health and future of the hard disk drive industry and how other storage technologies are impacting the industry. We will also spend considerable time talking about heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) and how HAMR will be implemented in the next generation of hard disk drives which will be available later this decade.
