With a 12.5% more capacity than its predecessors, Toshiba’s new 18TB MG09 CMR drives feature the company’s 3rd-gen, 9-disk Helium-sealed design and is also integrated with the innovative Flux Control – Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology which helps the Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) capacity to reach 2TB per disk.
Toshiba states that the 18TB MG09 CMR drives are ‘compatible with the widest range of applications and operating systems’. The MG09 boasts of a 7200rpm performance, and a gigantic 550TB per year workload rating. Power efficiency is given a boost through the Helium-sealed 3.5” form factor and the MG09 also provides a choice of SATA and SAS interfaces.
Aimed at those who are seeking suitable storage solutions, for hybrid-cloud and cloud-scale levels as well, the MG09’s superior design helps cloud-scale infrastructures improve the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through its advanced storage density which reduces capex. On-premises rack-scale storage can also be bolstered through the MG09.
“The addition of Toshiba’s innovative FC-MAMR technology advances CMR capacity to 18TB, delivering compatibility with the widest range of applications and operating environments”, said Mr. Takayoshi Tokushima, Senior Manager of Marketing Division at Asia Strategic Alliance, Toshiba Storage Products.
