TCO benefits of flagship hard drives
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toshiba
America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC) is exhibiting
at HPE Discover in Las Vegas on June 18-20, 2019 and will be showcasing
its latest high-capacity enterprise hard drives on the show floor. HPE
Discover attendees can witness a live demo of the performance and
power-saving TCO benefits of the helium-sealed 9-disk Toshiba MG08 16TB
Hard Drive. The demo will use the HPE Cloudline CL3100 Gen10 server, an
ultra-dense storage server built on open design principles, to compare
the performance and power profile of Toshiba’s flagship MG08 16TB 9-disk
helium-sealed HDD model and Toshiba’s innovative MG06 10TB 7-disk

Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) HDDs. With 33% more capacity than
today’s widely adopted 12TB drives, and 14% more capacity than prior
14TB models, MG08 16TB drives are compatible with the widest range of
applications and operating systems, and adapted to mixed random and
sequential read and write workloads in both cloud and traditional data

 Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000
bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as
1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports
storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230
= 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity.
Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files)
will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and
operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or
pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted
capacity may vary.
