Toshiba presents its highest capacity enterprise cloud hard drive

The Storage Products Business Unit of Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. has presented a new addition to its MC04 Series of high capacity enterprise-class cloud hard drives. The addition is a 6 TB hard drive, which is now the highest capacity hard drive in this line. The drive is designed for bulk storage systems and servers supporting cloud-based applications and scale-out workloads and comes in the common 3.5-inch form factor as well as with a spindle speed of 7200 rpm. Thus the new MC04 hard drive delivers both capacity and performance.

“Today’s cloud-based infrastructures require cost-effective, increased storage capacity,” said Scott Wright, director of disk drive product marketing at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit. “With up to 6 TB capacity and 7,200 RPM performance, the Toshiba MC04 Series delivers an optimized balance of enterprise capacity, workload, and performance required by our customers’ high data growth cloud use-cases.”

“Toshiba’s MC04 Series proved very capable during our intense regression testing, while Toshiba’s responsive customer service greatly simplified our evaluation process,” said Paul Turner, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “Toshiba’s breadth of capacity and 7,200 RPM performance positions us to build cost-efficient cloud storage that provides exceptional service levels to customers.”

The new 6 TB MC04 hard drive delivers 20 per cent more capacity compared to the previous 5 TB model and improves ROI for scale-out storage solutions with a 20 per cent increase in power efficiency (TB/W) over previous generations, enabling more cost-effective delivery of cloud storage services.

The new 6 TB Toshiba hard drive will be on the market in August 2015. No word on pricing as of now.
