Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage has introduced the MN07 Series 12TB and 14TB 3.5-inch hard disk drives targeting NAS platforms.
The Toshiba MN07 Series utilizes a helium-sealed mechanical design to achieve 14TB and 12TB capacity.
The 14TB model improves power efficiency by approximately 55 percent (W/GB3) over the previous 10TB “air” 7,200rpm mechanical designs.
The MN07 Series is designed for use in NAS appliances with eight or more drive bays and is suitable for NAS file and object storage applications that require disk drives with workload ratings of up to 180TB per year.
The MN07 models feature vibration compensation technology and advanced Format (AF) 512e sector technology. Both devices offer 24/7 operability, reliability with MTTF5 of 1.0 million hours.
“Toshiba’s 9-disk, helium-sealed mechanics deliver real value to OEMs and integrators of file- and object- storage solutions who utilize network-attached storage technologies,” said Shuji Takaoka, general manager of Storage Products Sales & Marketing Division at Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation.
