Toshiba Announces 18TB MG09 Series Hard Disk Drives
3rd-generation 9-disk Helium-sealed design and innovations in energy-assisted recording help customers achieve new levels of storage density and power efficiency
The MG09 Series features Toshiba’s third-generation, 9-disk Helium-sealed design to advance Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) density to 2TB per disk, achieving a total capacity of 18TB.The industry-standard 3.5-inch form-factor provides 7200rpm performance, and integrates easily into cloud-scale storage infrastructure, business-critical servers and storage, and File and Object storage solutions.
The massive 18TB CMR capacity is delivered using Toshiba’s innovative Flux Control Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology. These advances help the MG09 Series to achieve optimum storage capacity and application compatibility, with unsurpassed data reliability. Available with either a SATA 6.0Gbit/s or a 12.0Gbit/s SAS interface, the MG09 Series models integrate easily into standard 3.5-inch drive bays to help reduce the footprint and operational burden of cloud-scale storage infrastructure, File and Object storage systems, and business critical servers and storage systems.
