Might be a surprise to some, and not others, but looks like Synology has continued to invest and build their drives!
Last year Synology introduced four SSDs and M.2 drives to the market, and by the looks of it, they are not stopping. Numerous retail sites have started reporting on a potential 8 and 12TB HDDs by Synology.
Labeled as HAT5300-8T and HAT5300-12T almost certainly indicates their capacities.
Who is behind the drives and is Synology just putting a label on them remains to be seen. On top of this, it is yet not clear if these are SATA or SAS drives and what speeds are they working on.
Priced at around €425 for the 12TB and €285 for the 8TB I would dare to say these are pure SATA drives, but we will wait and see if the prices are true, and what interface will they have once they are officially announced.
More info on this subject once the official news and specifications are published by Synology.
