Toshiba announces 20TB MG10 Series hard disk drives

News Desk -


Toshiba Gulf FZE Dubai, UAE, has announced the launch of the MG10 Series in the MEA region, a massive capacity 20TB HDD with conventional magnetic recording (CMR). The 20TB MG10 Series features a 10-disk helium-sealed design that takes advantage of Toshiba’s innovative Flux Control Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology to increase storage capacity.

The 20TB MG10 Series, which has 11.1% more capacity than Toshiba’s previous 18TB model, is compatible with the widest range of applications and operating systems and is suited to mixed random and sequential read and write workloads in both cloud-scale and traditional data-center use cases. The drive offers 7,200rpm performance, a workload rating of 550TB per year, and a choice of SATA and SAS interfaces—all in a power-efficient helium-sealed, industry-standard 3.5-inch form factor.

Toshiba’s commitment to advancing HDD design to meet evolving storage needs in cloud-scale servers and object and file storage infrastructure is demonstrated once again by the 20TB MG10 Series. The 20TB MG10 Series, with its improved power efficiency and increased capacity, aids cloud-scale infrastructure in advancing storage density, lowering capex and improving total cost of ownership (TCO). The advanced 20TB MG10 Series with FC-MAMR technology will assist cloud-scale service providers and storage solution designers in achieving higher storage densities for cloud, hybrid-cloud, and on-premises rack-scale storage as data growth continues at an explosive rate.

20TB MG10 Series will be available in the region from Jan 2023.
