You know how we’re always told to do the right thing? Well, that applies to engineering innovation too. When we set out to design a new generation of storage enclosures, there were two top priorities in improving design. One was to improve the cooling – electronics are more reliable and run happiest when they are not too hot. The other was to reduce the amount of vibration impacting the drives – today’s extreme capacity hard drives pack a lot of bits onto platters, which requires higher precision and it can be a challenge to keep read/write heads on track.
