Pioneering Quality and Innovation

Toshiba's unique selling proposition lies in its relentless pursuit of quality and innovation. With a focus on delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that meet the evolving needs of the market, Toshiba sets itself apart by consistently pushing the boundaries of what's possible. Through its value-added services such as research and development, customer support, and strategic partnerships, Toshiba not only benefits the industry by providing reliable and innovative products but also contributes to driving progress and innovation in the broader technology landscape.

Toshiba's Unique Technology Approach

Writing data at the densities required for high-capacity HDDs calls for an advanced, innovative and reliable approach. Toshiba’s MG10 and MG09 series HDDs feature Flux Control Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology - a simple and elegant technique that uses microwave energy to ensure more of the write energy is focused into the platter, achieving an increase in areal density capability (ADC) of up to 20%. Toshiba’s technology uses conventional writing methods while eliminating the drawbacks of other MAMR approaches, allowing MG Series to eventually achieve capacities up to 30 TB and beyond.

Demand More, Get More

The enterprise demands more and with the MG Series you get it. Each member of the series has a workload rating of 550 TB/year, which is around ten times higher than an average desktop hard disk drive. This performance is available at any time of the day or night, as 24/7 operation also comes as standard.

Designed for your Enterprise Business

The enterprise demands more and with the MG Series you get it. Each Member of the series  has a worload of 550 TB per year., which is around ten times highter than an average desktop hard disk drive. This performance is available at any time of the day or night, as 24/7 operation also comes as standard. 

Surveillance HDD S300 & S300 Pro

The use of surveillance in our daily live plays more and more a pivotal role, especially as there had been great improvements in camera and recording technologies. Surveillance video cameras can be strategically placed to monitor traffic, business environments, public places and logistics amongst others. The captured data is reliabily stored in data centres and the analyzation of the data through AI can help e.g. to prevent crime or make your home a safer place than ever before. 

The  HDD line-up for Surveillance - the S300 and S300Pro - are the excellent solution to store and quickly analyze thousand of images. These HDDS are built for the 24/7 enviroment, they provide up 180TB/year workload rating and are scalable up to 64 cameras and have built-in vibration sensors.

CERN and Toshiba Hard Drives

Pushing the boundaries of data processing

How three generations of Toshiba Hard Disk Drives have helped the world’s largest physics lab keep track of the hundreds of terabytes of data that are generated by the LHC experiments every second.

Integrated RV Sensors

Regular hard disk drives can impact the performance of a multi-bay system by generating 'knock-on' vibration. The MG Series ensures high reliability by minimising vibration effects through their advanced control and sensing technology. Multiple sensors detect the slightest shock and built-in RV (Rotational Vibration) sensors compensate for any rotational vibration detected, eliminating the possibility of 'knock-on' vibration in multi-bay server systems.

Keeping your Critical Data Safe

Your data is critical so don't risk it. Toshiba's advanced technologies have been developed to add security and assurance to the enterprise user. With Persistent Write Cache Technology your data is safe in the event of an interruption in power supply during a write to the hard disk. Data is saved in the large flash-based cache and written to the disk when power is restored.

Store More with Flexibility

Enterprise users need flexibility - the MG Series meets this need with a choice of 6 Gbit/s SATA and dual-port 12 Gbit/s SAS interface options as well as block size on demand (512e, 4Kn, 512n). Additionally, there are options for Toshiba hard drives with Self Encrypting technology or with Sanitize Instant Erase (SIE) technology, which means that in an instant all data is erased, without the need for overwriting the drive for hours.

High Storage Density Level

The Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) HDDs with capacities of 12TB or higher use a helium-sealed design, providing the power-efficient capacity and storage density needed by cloud-scale and enterprise storage solution providers to achieve their TCO objectives. They also utilise Toshiba Group’s laser welding technology to ensure the helium remains securely sealed inside the drive enclosure. The MG10 Series features a 22 TB 10-disk model, while the MG09 Series features a 18 TB 9-disk model.

Build to Deliver, Designed to Last

Toshiba is renowned the world over for 50 years of leading innovation – and the power behind its range of hard drives is no exception. Designed for high capacity and excellent performance, you can be sure that Toshiba’s wealth of experience in hard drives is at work in your storage system. A 5-year extended warranty is also included with the Enterprise Capacity Hard Drive - MG Series for the ultimate peace of mind.
