TAIPEI – Taiwan, January 24th, 2019: Electronics major Toshiba has rolled out its MG08 Series Hard Disk Drives. The Hard Disk Drives have a mammoth capacity of 16TB Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) HDD. The drives come with 33% more capacity than 12TB drives, and are compatible with the widest range of applications and operating systems, and adapted to mixed random and sequential read and write workloads in both cloud and traditional datacentre environments.

A part of Toshiba’s second-generation helium-sealed HDD family, and eighth-generation Enterprise Capacity HDD family, the MG08 delivers 7,200rpm performance, a 550TB per year workload rating, a 2.5 million-hour MTTF, a 512Mib cache buffer, and a choice of SATA and SAS
interfaces, and a 3.5-inch form factor.

Takayoshi Tokushima, Senior Director of Storage Products
Marketing Group at Toshiba Electronic Components Taiwan Corporation, said, “Toshiba’s new 16TB MG08 Series delivers new levels of storage capacity
and density while delivering improved power efficiency for our cloud-scale
and storage solutions customers. Only high-density HDD technology can
achieve our customers’ critical TCO objectives at a cost of pennies per
GB.”

The Toshiba MG08 Series matches the evolving needs for storage devices suited for use in cloud-scale servers and storage infrastructure. The industry-leading 16TB CMR capacity will help cloud-scale service providers and storage solutions designers to achieve higher storage densities for cloud, hybrid-cloud and on-premises rack-scale storage.

Toshiba said the 16TB MG08 will help save power and lower the TCO of storage infrastructure designed for applications such as data-protection, big data aggregation, content serving and digital archiving.
