On the day WD saw red, Toshiba went faster with a 10,500rpm model of its enterprise-grade small-form factor disk drive and bumped capacity to 900GB.

While flash might be getting cheaper, enterprise flash is still eye watering expensive. As such fast spinning rust offers a very cost effective storage where the out and out random IOPS of flash is not required but capacity with better IOPS than 7200rpm disk is required.
