Western Digital Unleashes New Era of Growth for Cloud Market With World’s First 22TB CMR and 26TB UltraSMR HDDs

2022-05-09 16:00:00

Western Digital announced that it is sampling its new 22TB¹ and 26TB UltraSMR HDDs to select hyperscale cloud customers, further expanding its areal density leadership and delivering customer value by driving TCO lower. Western Digital’s HDD technology portfolio and areal density leadership puts it at the center of storage innovation. Leveraging its unique OptiNAND™ technology, energy-assisted PMR (ePMR), triple-stage actuator, HelioSeal® and now UltraSMR technologies, Western Digital is on a clear path to delivering 30+ TB with ePMR. The new ePMR drives leverage Western Digital’s OptiNAND technology to unlock unprecedented levels of capacity, performance and data resiliency. The 22TB CMR HDD incorporates OptiNAND to deliver areal-density leadership on a mature 2.2TB/platter HelioSeal platform with ten disks. Combining OptiNAND with proprietary firmware that leverages HDD system-level hardware advancements, Western Digital’s new UltraSMR technology introduces large block encoding along with an advanced error correction algorithm that increases tracks-per-inch (TPI) to enable higher capacity. The result is Western Digital's new 26TB Ultrastar® DC HC670 UltraSMR HDD that delivers 2.6TB per platter, offering 18% more capacity for cloud customers optimizing their stacks to take advantage of the benefits of SMR. With cloud service providers increasingly adding SMR to their datacenter roadmaps, the 26TB capacity serves as a tipping point to accelerate adoption. Uniquely capable with OptiNAND, the HDDs also include the ArmorCache™ write cache data safety feature, which gives customers the performance of write cache enable (WCE) combined with the data protection of write cache disable (WCD) for added data protection or resiliency in case of an emergency power off (EPO). For the first time in HDD history, this Write Cache Data Safety feature gives users both performance and data protection, no matter which mode is selected. OptiNAND gives the drives a significant performance increase also in WCD mode, which is greatest in random writes with larger block transfers. At common HDD application transfer lengths of 256KB or greater, IOPS and throughput improve by more than 40% relative to a non-OptiNAND drives, with a peak improvement of over 80% at 1MB transfer length. 22TB CMR and 26TB UltraSMR HDD Availability: The 22TB Ultrastar DC HC570 HDD and the new 26TB Ultrastar DC HC670 UltraSMR HDD are now sampling to select hyperscale customers. The DC HC570 HDD will begin volume shipments to the channel, and the UltraSMR HDD will begin shipping to select customers in the summer of 2022. The Ultrastar Data60and Data102JBODs will feature the new 22TB CMR Ultrastar HDDs this summer, delivering the industry’s highest storage density in a fully optimized platform for added durability and data reliability for software-defined storage. Extending OptiNAND innovations across its HDD portfolio, Western Digital will deliver 22TB WD Purple® Pro HDDs for smart video/surveillance, WD Red® Pro HDDs for NAS solutions, and WD Gold® HDDs for system integrators and resellers serving enterprises and SMBs. These drives will be available this summer.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Western Digital Sign A Memorandum of Understanding for A Unique Collaboration to Standardize and Drive Broad Adoption of Next-Generation Data Placement, Processing and Fabrics Storage Technologies

2022-03-30 00:00:00

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Western Digital announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for a unique collaboration to standardize and drive broad adoption of next-generation data placement, processing and fabrics (D2PF) storage technologies. The companies will initially focus on aligning their efforts and creating a vigorous ecosystem for Zoned Storage solutions. These steps will enable the industry to focus on countless applications that ultimately create greater value for customers. This marks the first time that both Samsung and Western Digital have come together as technology leaders to create widespread alignment and stimulate awareness for important storage technologies. Focusing on enterprise and cloud applications, the partnership is expected to spur a range of collaborations around technology standardization and software development for D2PF technologies like Zoned Storage. With this collaboration, end-users can have confidence that these emerging storage technologies will have support from multiple device vendors as well as from vertically integrated hardware and software companies. The two companies have already kickstarted an initiative around Zoned Storage devices, including ZNS (Zoned Namespaces) SSDs and SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) HDDs. Through organizations such as SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and the Linux Foundation, Samsung and Western Digital will define high-level models and frameworks for next-generation Zoned Storage technologies. With a commitment to enable open and scalable data center architectures, they have founded the Zoned Storage TWG (Technical Work Group), which was approved by SNIA in December 2021. The group is already defining and specifying common use cases for Zoned Storage devices, as well as host/device architecture and programming models. In addition, this collaboration is expected to serve as a starting point to expand zone-based (e.g. ZNS, SMR) device interfaces, as well as future-generation, high-capacity storage devices with enhanced data placement and processing technologies. At a later stage, these initiatives will be expanded to include other emerging D2PF technologies such as computational storage and storage fabrics including NVMe™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF).

Western Digital Talks to Merge with Kioxia Reportedly Stall

2021-10-21 22:55:00

Western Digital Corporation (NasdaqGS:WDC)’s talks to merge with Japanese chipmaker and partner Kioxia Holdings Corporation have stalled over the last few weeks, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The talks reached a standstill over concerns about the valuation, approval from the Japanese government and an ongoing strategic review at Kioxia shareholder Toshiba Corp, the sources said. Earlier in August, Reuters reported that Western Digital was in advanced talks for a possible $20 billion stock merger with Kioxia, in a move that would create a NAND memory giant to rival Samsung Electronics. Kioxia, sold by Toshiba Corp. in 2018 to a consortium led by Bain Capital, shelved plans for an initial public offering last year after U.S.-China trade tensions slammed Huawei, one of Kioxia’s biggest clients. The Japanese chipmaker has said it is still considering an IPO. The Wall Street Journal first reported the news earlier in the day.

Western Digital Corp. Introduces a New Flash-Enhanced Drive Architecture Breaks Traditional Boundaries of Storage

2021-08-31 15:55:00

Western Digital Corp. introduced a new flash-enhanced drive architecture that breaks traditional boundaries of storage. Building on the company’s unique ability to innovate with HDD and flash, the new storage architecture with OptiNAND technology optimizes and integrates HDDs with iNAND embedded flash drives. This gives customers – like hyperscale cloud, CSPs, enterprises, smart video surveillance partners, NAS suppliers and more – a solution to meet the exponential growth in data creation by delivering the capacity, performance and reliability needed to store vast amounts of data and well into the future. Leveraging industry-first technologies including triple-stage actuator (TSA) and HelioSeal technology, the first products featuring the new drive architecture will deliver an unsurpassed 2.2TB per platter, extending capacity gains on proven ePMR technology. Setting a new industry milestone, Western Digital has shipped samples of new nine-disk, 20TB ePMR flash-enhanced drives with OptiNAND technology to select customers. New Flash-Enhanced Drive with OptiNAND Technology: Unlike a hybrid drive where flash is used to store user data, the new architecture is a breakthrough in storage that works differently, enabling advances on multiple dimensions of storage capability. By adding vertically integrated iNAND to its world-class HDDs, and with enhanced firmware algorithm and SoC innovations, Western Digital’s flash-enhanced drives with OptiNAND technology deliver improved capacity, performance and reliability to help customers meet growing storage demands. A technology brief can be found here. Highlights include: Capacity: The drive works smarter, with enhanced firmware algorithms taking advantage of expanded metadata that has been offloaded to the iNAND, enabling more tracks per inch (TPI) with resulting increased areal density. Performance: Drive latency is improved with proprietary optimizations to drive firmware focused on requiring fewer adjacent track interference (ATI) refreshes and reducing the need for write cache flushes in write cache-enabled mode. Reliability: Nearly 50x more customer data can be retained in the event of an emergency power off (EPO) scenario, and with Western Digital’s unique capabilities in vertically integrated supply, design, development, testing and qualification of flash-enhanced drives, customers can count on the drive’s reliability.

Western Digital Reportedly in Advanced Talks to Merge with Kioxia in $20 Billion-Plus Deal

2021-08-25 18:13:00

Western Digital Corporation (NasdaqGS:WDC) is in advanced talks to merge with Japan’s Kioxia Holdings Corporation, according to people familiar with the matter, in a deal that could be valued at more than $20 billion and further reorder the global chip industry. Long-running discussions between the companies have heated up in the past few weeks and they could reach agreement on a deal as early as mid-September, the people said. Western Digital would pay for the deal with stock and the combined company would likely be run by its Chief Executive, David Goeckeler, the people said. There’s no guarantee Western Digital, which had a market value of around $19 billion Wednesday afternoon, will seal an agreement, and Kioxia could still opt for an initial public offering it had been planning or another combination.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. Western's stock is now priced above its 5-day, but below its 50-day and 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is weakening. Historically, this is a positive setup in the near-term. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), Western's stock indicates that it's likely oversold. Overall, these technical indicators signal negative momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 57.

Balance Sheet Analysis

Western's recently published balance sheet conveys disappointing growth, particularly with respect to Equity and Liabilities metrics. Western published concerning equity metrics for this filing. In the current report, equity stood at 11984.0, which represents a -0.3% change from the last report. This parameter often affects companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 4.3%. This performance is significantly less impressive than its peers and competitors. Therefore, their equity movement component earned a score of 55. Also, Western's liabilities stood at 13715.0 in the current filing, which represents a -2.1% change from the previous report. This performance is relatively weak in comparison to their peers and suggests that its's stock price will likely suffer until this is solved. Discouraging results like these statistically lead to negative movement in stock prices, so we rated their liabilities movement component 60. That said, one metric, Assets, stood out as strongly positive. The company's assets section could set high expectations for Western's future attractiveness, as they went to 25699.0, which is a -1.3% change from the last period. This performance is interesting in comparison to its peers and competitors. The company's asset component, therefore, received a grade of 77. Therefore, it received a cautionary score of 59.

Income Statement Analysis

Western seems to be balancing strong EBITDA and Revenue Efficiency along with an overall impressive positive income statement. Western's management was effective in improving its EBIDTA, which now sits at 3836.0 and represents a 12.3% change from the last reporting period. Companies in the same industry and market capitalization are typically affected by this parameter by up to 13.2%. Their EBITDA metrics are even more impressive relative to their peers and competitors, and its likely the stock price has room to grow to reflect its intrinsic value accurately. Consequently, their EBITDA movement received a grade of 83. Also, Western did an excellent job managing its revenue efficiency this past period. Western's revenue efficiency is 19185.0 according to the metrics in the current filing, which represents a 1.3% change from the previous report. This parameter often affects companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 18.5%. Their revenue efficiency, specifically in contrast to their industry peers', should support a positive movement in the company's stock price. The company's revenue efficiency, therefore, received a grade of 80. However, one discouraging result, Return Factors, stood out. Western's reported return on equity (ROE) ratio was 16.6, representing a change of -9.0%. This metric might have a 3.1 percent impact on companies in the same industry and with the same market capitalization. These numbers show that management has been unsuccessful in fostering appropriate growth related to return on assets and return on equity momentum relative to their peers. Therefore, their return factors component earned a score of 71. Consequently, the companie's income statement earned a rank of 82.

Cash Flow Analysis

Western appears likely to maintain its strong cash flow metrics and momentum going forward. Free cash flow numbers published by Western were 4.5, which was a 19.3% change from the previous filing. This parameter coud affect companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 7.4%. Their free cash flow situation is all the more impressive relative to their peers and competitors. Consequently, their free cash flow movement received a grade of 82. Also, Western is doing a remarkable job of keeping its asset turnover under control. At filing, their asset turnover metrics were 0.8, representing a 2.2% change from the previous period. This metric might have a 10.7 percent impact on companies in the same industry and with the same market capitalization. Its asset turnover metrics are especially remarkable relative to their peers. We believe the stock price has room to grow to reflect its intrinsic value accurately. Therefore, its asset turnover movement earned a score of 70. That said, one metric, Capital Expenditure, stood out as strongly negative. Western's management was ineffective in materially improving CapEx, which now sits at -1133.0 and represents a -12.7% change from the previous report. They appears to be headed in the wrong direction regarding resource allocation, exhibiting prudent capital expenditure growth compared to its peers. Therefore, their CapEx movement component earned a score of 54. Because the company's management is doing an excellent job managing these critical metrics, the cash flow was given a score of 70.
