Japan-based electronics firm Toshiba has launched new hard disk drives in India. The firm has introduced the new MN07 series for use in Network Attached Storage (NAS) platforms. The series consists of two hard disk drives of 12TB and 14TB capacity respectively.
The 3.5-inch hard disk drives utilize a helium-sealed mechanical design to achieve the massive 14TB and 12TB capacity, the company said in a statement. Power efficiency of the 14TB model is said to be approximately 55 percent (W/GB3) over the previous 10TB “air” 7,200rpm mechanical designs.
As stated by the firm in a statement, the MN07 Series is suitable for NAS files and object storage applications which need disk drives with up to 180TB of workload rating annually. The new series also comes with features like vibration compensation technology and advanced format (AF) 512e sector technology.
In addition, both hard disks offer 24/7 operability and reliability with MTTF5 of 1.0 Million hours. The devices are also compatible with third-party, 3.5-inch NAS enclosures.
Takayoshi Tokushima, Director of Storage Products Marketing Group at Toshiba Electronic Components Taiwan Corporation, said “Toshiba’s new MN07 Series provides proven NAS-class performance and durability. Toshiba’s exclusive 9-disk, helium-sealed mechanics deliver real value to OEMs and integrators of file- and object- storage solutions who utilize proven network-attached storage technologies. MN07 Series models include RV compensation technology for optimal performance in multi-disk NAS enclosures and are designed for robust 24/7 operation up to 300,000 load/unload cycles.” – Gadgets Now
