Toshiba intros 6 TB corporate-class hard drive

Toshiba has announced a new corporate-class hard drive that now offers 6 TB of capacity. The new drive belongs to the company’s MG04 line and features the common 3.5-inch form factor, supporting the SATA 6 Gbit/sec and SAS 12 Gbit/sec standards for extreme data transfer speeds.

Toshiba boasts that the new 6 TB model now offers 50 per cent more capacity than the older MG03 generation, which topped at 4 TB and 30 per cent better speed – the MG03 reached 165 MB/sec of read speed, while the MG04 line reaches 205 MB/sec of read speed. The new 6 TB drives also support both industry-standard 4K native and 512e Advanced Format sector technologies for optimum performance and are suitable for legacy applications that require 512 sector lengths using aligned-write environments. In addition both the 6 TB MG04ACA and MG04SCA 12 Gbit/s models offer Toshiba persistent write cache technologies (PWC), designed to help protect against data loss in the event of sudden power loss. Model options supporting SAS and SATA commands to enable sanitize “instant” cryptographic erase (SIE) are also available.

The new 6 TB drives will ship in Q1 2015. No word on pricing as of now.
