Toshiba today announces the 10TB1 MG06 Series Enterprise Capacity HDD model line-up. Toshiba’s new MG06 series offers a 25 percent capacity increase compared to prior generations and enables models to be delivered at multiple capacity points to better leverage capacity refresh qualification cycles for OEMs/ODMs infrastructure builders, cloud solution providers (CSPs) and system integrators.
In addition to a heftier capacity, the 10TB MG06 Series features a greater maximum sustained transfer rate, 237 MiB/s2, than the earlier MG05 Series, as well as a 25 percent increase in MTTF3, with a rating of 2.5M hours. The drive provides a SATA 6Gbit/s interface4 and 7,200 rpm performance. Additionally, the MG06 HDD supports emulated 512 Advanced Format (512e) technology for compatibility with legacy applications and operating environments; or 4K native sector technology for optimum performance in all-disk or hybrid storage platforms.
“The volume and value of digital data across organizations of all sizes continues to create opportunities and challenges for CSPs, server and storage vendors, and IT professionals,” said Scott Wright, Director of HDD Product Marketing at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “Toshiba’s new MG06 Series advances performance and value across a range of Enterprise Capacity HDD models to better align with the diverse needs of systems and solutions for Cloud and Business Critical applications today.”
Designed to support higher storage density, the MG06 Series HDD introduces 10TB to Toshiba’s line-up while also updating 6TB and 8TB capacities. Based on Toshiba’s latest HDD architecture, the new models can save rack space to improve the operational efficiency of cloud-scale infrastructure. The MG06 Series is engineered for mid-line, nearline, and tier two business critical server and storage system workloads; including servers supporting application workloads that benefit from high capacity per spindle; capacity-optimized data center storage systems; and enterprise IT and data center servers supporting workloads per HDD of up to 550TB total bytes written and read per year. All models feature Toshiba’s Persistent Write Cache Technology for peak performance and enterprise-grade data reliability. Models also support power mode management capabilities that conform to HDD industry standards.
