New MG07SCA 14TB Hard Disk Drives help SAS-based Cloud-scale storage platforms achieve TCO objectives.
Toshiba announced their new Enterprise Capacity 14TB and 12TB helium-sealed SAS HDD models. The MG07SCA Series features 7,200rpm performance, a SAS 12Gbit interface, and Advanced Format Sector Technology. The hard disk drive features a 9-disk Helium-sealed design and 14TB of Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) capacity for optimum compatibility. The brand’s Helium-sealed design fits into industry standard 3.5-inch drive bays. A 12TB model is also included in the Series offering.
The 9-disk Helium-sealed design utilizes Toshiba’s laser welding process, and a special top-cover design seals helium inside the drive offering high capacity and low power profile to the product. The SAS interface provides 12Gbits transfer rate performance and dual port capability for data-path redundancy preferred by many storage solutions designers. The 14TB SAS model offers approximately 40% increase in maximum capacity than Toshiba’s prior MG06 10TB SAS models.
