The average capacity per drive in the first quarter of 2019 was about 2.50 TB, which was then brought down to 2.40 TB in the second quarter and third quarter and then raised again to 2.70 TB in the last quarter of 2019. The capacity was increased again in 2020 to 2.90 TB in the first quarter, 3.30 TB in the second quarter and is expected to go up to 4.10 TB by the third quarter of 2020.

The Edge/Client compute average storage remained unchanged throughout 2019 and into the first quarter of 2020 as well at 1.20 TB.

The Edge/ Client non- compute average capacity was 2.20 TB in the first quarter of 2019 and then increased to 2.40 TB for the second and third quarters before increasing to 2.50 TB in the last quarter of 2019 and remained at 2.50 TB into the first quarter of 2020.
