MG08ADA Series
8.0TB Enterprise Class Hard Disk Drive

3.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s | 7200RPM | 256MB Cache
Incredible capacity and performance
As Big Data drives demand for more distributed storage in the cloud and on premises, enterprise server and storage systems need to be built using trusted solutions. Toshiba’s Enterprise Capacity Hard Drive – MG Series offers formatted capacities as high as 18 TB with interface options including SATA and SAS and delivers 24/7 operation at a workload of 550 TB/year. The MG Series is ideal for enterprise storage array and industrial server and storage systems. It provides the capacity and advanced technologies to meet the special demands of datacenter and cloud-scale infrastructures.
With formatted storage capacities ranging from 1 TB to 18 TB the MG Series offers hard disk drive solutions for enterprise servers and storage systems with need for capacity.
Regular hard disk drives can impact the performance of a multi-bay system by generating 'knock-on' vibration. The MG Series ensures high reliability by minimising vibration effects through their advanced control and sensing technology. Multiple sensors detect the slightest shock and built-in RV (Rotational Vibration) sensors compensate for any rotational vibration detected, eliminating the possibility of 'knock-on' vibration in multi-bay server systems.
Your data is critical so don't risk it. Toshiba's advanced technologies have been developed to add security and assurance to the enterprise user. With Persistent Write Cache Technology your data is safe in the event of an interruption in power supply during a write to the hard disk. Data is saved in the large flash-based cache and written to the disk when power is restored.
