Taiwan based computer electronics company Toshiba announced the new MN07 series hard drives dedicated for NAS platforms and integrators. The MN07 series hard drive offers a 12TB and 14TB 3.5-inch hard disk drives for use in NAS platforms.
MN07 Series Hard Drive: Specifications And Features
The Toshiba MN07 Series utilizes a helium-sealed mechanical design to achieve the massive 14TB and 12TB capacity. The 14TB model is comparatively more power efficient. These new hard drives are solely dedicated towards use in NAS appliances with eight or more drive bays and are suitable for NAS file and object storage applications that require disk drives with workload ratings of up to 180TB per year.
The MN07 models feature vibration compensation technology coupled with advanced Format (AF) 512e sector technology. These two technologies help improve the overall performance, capacity, power efficiency and reliability. Additionally, both devices offer 24/7 operability, superior reliability with MTTF of 1.0 Million hours, and are compatible with popular 3rd-party, 3.5-inch NAS enclosures.
MN07 Series Hard Drive: Application
Network-attached storage is a file-level computer data storage server connected to a computer network providing data access to a heterogeneous group of clients. The new MN07 Series models include RV compensation technology for optimal performance in multi-disk NAS enclosures. These are designed for robust 24/7 operation up to 300,000 load/unload cycles.
“Toshiba’s new MN07 Series provides proven NAS-class performance and durability. Toshiba’s exclusive 9-disk, helium-sealed mechanics deliver real value to OEMs and integrators of file- and object- storage solutions who utilize proven network-attached storage technologies,” said Takayoshi Tokushima, Director of Storage Products Marketing Group at Toshiba Electronic Components Taiwan Corporation.
