Hard disk drives are today's fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Under multi-user loads, however, the story changes entirely. In the past, Seagate\'s ATA and SATA offerings have been middling performers with drives from firms such as Western Digital and the old Maxtor aggressively seizing the lead when it came to loads featuring significant amounts of concurrency.
