In December 2015, Western Digital subsidiary HGST introduced the World's First helium-filled 10TB hard drive, the Ultrastar He10. One year later, they just announced the Enterprise-grade 12GB HGST Ultrastar He12, now available, and the upcoming 14GB model.

From release/information:

Ultrastar SN200 SSD Delivers Next-Generation NVMe PCIe Storage Capacity, Speed The Ultrastar SN200 NVMe SSD Series is the highest capacity NVMe PCIe SSD available today in 2.5-inch and Half-Height, Half-Length (HH-HL) form factors. Leveraging Western Digital's advanced memory technology, it is the company's fastest NVMe PCIe SSD to date, offering up to 100 percent more sequential read, and up to 61 percent more random read performance than the company's previous-generation NVMe-compliant SSD3, the HGST-branded Ultrastar SN150 SSD. Available in capacities ranging from 800GB to 7.68TB, the extreme performance and superior capacity of the new NVMe PCIe SSD, in combination with its outstanding QoS, make it ideal for workload-intensive cloud and hyperscale environments that demand instant response times, such as ecommerce, search and social networks, as well as environments processing massive volumes of data in real-time, including intensive analytics.
