    The HDD market has not been in the spotlight in the last couple of years, or for that matter, even created a positive buzz in the media. On the other hand, the solid-state drive (SSD) market is growing; thus, cannibalizing HDD shipments and has been taking all the headlines with new advancements in technology. All the while, the HDD market has not seen a major technology advancement since helium (He)-filled HDDs were introduced in 2013. WD is changing that, and on 11 October 2017, WD held an event called, “Innovating to Fuel the Next Decade of Big Data” at its new headquarters in San Jose, California. During the event, WD announced a major HDD technology advancement, microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR).
