Toshiba’s new 8TB model can help improve the operational efficiency of storage infrastructure by increasing the capacity available in the 3.5-inch form factor. The drive’s high capacity SATA interface and performance characteristics match-up well with requirements for applications such as software-defined storage infrastructures, public and private cloud deployments, digital archives and disk-based backup and data protection solutions.
The drive’s power management features help to optimize operating costs and operating environments during off-peak activity periods. The 8TB SATA HDD is designed for 24x7 operation and provides a 550TB transferred-per-year rated workload, with a 2,000,000 hour MTTF rating. In addition, this is the first Toshiba Enterprise Capacity SATA model to support the new industry-standard host-initiated power-disable feature for improved device management capability.
