HGST began to develop hard drives containing helium for several years ago through a process called HelioSeal. The internal disk space which contains a data storage disk filled with helium gas and HGST Ultrastar He12 has come bringing this technology to hit the market.

Helium gas that has micro-climate is only one-seventh of the usual air density that is claimed to allow the data storage disk to be thinner and ease the working of the data-reader's arm. Helium hard drive has a capacity of 50 percent larger than the harddisk contains air.

"Ultrastar He12 is advancing the Western Digital HelioSeal portfolio to deliver industry-leading large-capacity hard drives and has maximum power efficiency," said Vice President of Devices Western Digital, Mark Grace, Saturday, April 29, 2017.
