Toshiba touches 18TB with the new MG09

Helium-sealed 9-platter design and innovations in the field of energy-assisted magnetic recording enable higher levels of storage density and energy efficiency

Toshiba unveiled the new MG09 Hard Disk series, the company’s first range of drives with energy-assisted magnetic recording.

Based on Toshiba’s patented third-generation 9-platter helium-filled design, the new drives implement the revolutionary Flux Control – Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology.

Thanks to this innovation, the density of conventional magnetic recording (CMR) has been increased to 2TB per platter, thus reaching a total capacity of 18TB.

With 12.5% ​​more capacity than previous 16TB models, the 18TB MG09 CMR drives are compatible with a wide range of applications and operating systems.

These disks are capable of handling mixed random and sequential read / write workloads for both cloud-scale and traditional data center deployments.

Other features include a rotation speed of 7,200 RPM, a TBW of 550TB and the ability to choose between SATA or SAS interface.

The compact 3.5-inch form factor, industry standard, and helium-sealed technology also ensure maximum energy efficiency.

The 18TB MG09 series units will be available from the end of March, for more information see this link.
