The AL14SX Series HDD from Toshiba Electronics Europe is a family of 15,000rpm enterprise performance hard disk drives for mission critical servers and storage.

The AL14SX Series is available in 300GB, 600GB and 900GB capacities in a compact 2.5 inch, 15mm form-factor, saving rack space and reducing mission critical storage footprint as well as operational burden. Available models support 512 native, 4K native or emulated 512 sector length technologies for optimized compatibility with industry standard applications and operating environments.

At 290 MiB/s with 4Kn/512e model and 5.6 watt power consumption rating, the AL14SX features a 19 percent increase in maximum sustained transfer rate and a 28.7 percent improvement in power efficiency (W/GB) over the prior AL13SX generation.

The HDD features optional Sanitize Instant Erase (SIE) models and leverages Toshiba’s persistent write cache technology for robust data integrity in sudden power-loss environments. Each model is purpose-built for tier one mission critical servers; RAID (redundant array of independent disks) storage; servers hosting databases and transaction-based applications; high-performance computing; and rack-optimized data centres.
