Toshiba introduces 2,5-inch 10K RPM enterprise HDD line
Toshiba Corporation today announced a new 2.5-inch low-power, enterprise HDDs line, offering speeds of 10,000RPM and comes with 300GB, 450GB and 600GB capacities.
“Improvements to the magnetic recording head and disk’s magnetic layer gives the MBF2600RC an areal density of 595Mbit/mm2 (384Gbpsi), highest areal density for 2.5-inch enterprise drives, and realizes 600GB capacity, the largest capacity yet available in the market including 3.5-inch drives. Combined with a rotation rate of over 10,000RPM, the line-up will meet the enterprise market’s exacting standards with 2.5-inch form factor drives. Furthermore, the internal transfer rate in the MBF2600RC family is boosted by 13%, from 191.5MB/s to 216MB/s, compared with the previous generation MBD2300RC, due to improved linear recording density, and overall performance increased by realizing high speed seek time. The new drives also offer an optional drive-based encryption design that secures data when end of lease, during disposal and recycling. The range of storage capacities meets customer needs across a wide range of mission-critical IT equipment, from servers to large capacity storage systems. “
