Seagate Doubts Viability of Helium-Filled Hard Drives.
Helium has been known to be a superior medium for a long time, the only advance they made recently is in how to product such drives cheaply
The fact that helium migrates through most metals and can cause helium embrittlement should be a bigger concern.
As far i understand embrittlement this shouldn´t concern some sealed systems as are hard drives because they're in closed space for themselves and there even todays HDDs dislikes impacts that could stress magnetic layer. Only where this things should be of any mean are portables and somehow i believe that people are more and more willingly migrate to SSD 240GB+ even in next year. And ask god how big will ssd be when this drives see the light of the day. While in closed rack system there arent any movement only during setup/repair.
