MG08ACA Series
14.0TB Enterprise Capacity Hard Disk Drive

3.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s | 7200RPM | 512MB Cache
MG08ACA Series Enterprise Capacity HDD
Using an industry-leading 9-disk design pioneered by Toshiba, the MG08ACA Series provides 14TB of conventional magnetic recording (CMR) capacity and 7200RPM 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. Toshiba’s precision industrial laser welding technology is put to use to seal helium inside the 9-disk mechanics. The massive 14TB capacity is delivered using proven CMR recording technology providing optimum application compatibility and data reliability. Available with either a SATA 6.0 Gbit/s or a 12.0 Gbit/s SAS interface, the MG08ACA Series models integrate easily into standard 3.5- inch drive bays to help reduce the footprint and operational burden of cloud-scale storage infrastructure, and business critical servers and storage systems.
