12.0TB MG07ACA Series SATA Interface Enterprise Class Hard Disk Drive

3.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s | 7200RPM | 256MB Cache
The New Heavyweight Champion in the Capacity Arena
The world's first 9-disk HDD
Using the world's first 9-disk Helium-sealed design, the MG07ACA Enterprise Capacity SATA HDD provides 12TB of conventional magnetic recording (CMR) capacity and 7,200 rpm performance. The industry-standard 3.5-inch form-factor integrates easily into cloud-scale storage infrastructure, business-critical servers and storage, and File and Object storage solutions.
Helium-sealed design
The MG07ACA Series utilizes Toshiba precision laser welding technology to seal helium inside the 9-disk mechanics for the life of the drive. The helium-sealed design reduces aerodynamic drag to deliver a lower operational power profile, helping to achieve TCO objectives for cloud-scale and software-defined data center infrastructure.
Incredible capacity
The massive 12TB model capacity is delivered using proven CMR/PRM recording technologies providing optimum compatibility and data reliability. Equipped with SATA 6.0 Gbit/s interface, the MG07ACA models integrate easily into standard 3.5-inch SATA drive bays to help reduce the footprint and operational burden of cloud-scale storage infrastructure, and business critical servers and storage systems.
Note: This 12.0TB HDD utilizes a new standardized mounting screw pattern that is not compatible with older Mac Pro models. In a Mac Pro tower, the drive can be installed in an empty optical drive bay using an OWC Hard Drive Bracket, OWC Multi-Mount Bracket for 2009/10/12 Mac Pro, or an OWC Multi-Mount Bracket for 2006/07/08 Mac Pro.
