What is a “shingled” hard drive?
Seagate is releasing a new line of HDDs. The main selling points are that they offer an impressive amount of storage for the price; an 8TB drive will sell for $260. Seagate is talking about these new “Shingled Magnetic Recording” drives, but what does that actually mean? Is this a new method of HDD construction, just a marketing phrase, or what?
