Enterprise HDD

Enterprise Capacity HDD

MG07ACAxxx Series

The New Heavyweight Champion in the Capacity Arena.

Using the world’s first 9-disk Helium-sealed design, the MG07ACA Enterprise Capacity SATA HDD provides up to 14TB 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.
 

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.
 

The massive 14TB and 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.

  • World's First Source : Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation, as of December 8,2017.
  • Definition of capacity: A terabyte (TB) is 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 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 and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.
  • A mebibyte (MiB) means 220, or 1,048,576 bytes.
  • MTTF (Mean Time to Failure) is not a guarantee or estimate of product life; it is a statistical value related to mean failure rates for a large number of products which may not accurately reflect actual operation.  Actual operating life of the product may be different from the MTTF.
  • Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
  • SIE: Sanitize Instant Erase. SIE is a function to invalidate the data recorded on the magnetic disks at a blink.
  • "3.5-inch" mean the form factor of HDDs. They do not indicate drive's physical size.
  • PWC (Persistent Write Cache) with PLP (Power Loss Protection) :  PWC with PLP is a function to handle the write data that the drive reports "Normal completion" to the host but not being stored to hard disk media yet. The write data may be written to the commanded LBA on the hard disk media. The un-written data to hard disk media is stored to Flash memory using back up power by PLP when the power supply to the drive suddenly is shut down. And, after PLP operation, it may be required more time to start up the drive than in case of normal shutdown. 1) PLP does not secure data in the mode of all the power shutdowns. When power supplies other than recommended procedure are intercepted, data might be lost. 2) In the power shutdown before it reports on the Write completion, data not anticipated might be lost.
  • PLP (Power Loss Protection): PLP supports to record data in buffer memory to hard disk media utilizing back electromotive force along with media rotation inertia in case of sudden supply shut down.
  • Workload is a measure of the data throughput of the year, and it is defined as the amount of data written, read or verified by commands from the host system.
