Toshiba launches 12TB and 14TB HDDs for desktops and NAS
Toshiba announced its latest and largest hard drive for high-end desktops and NAS. The new N300 and X300-series HDDs will offer not only increased capacities but also provide improved performance.
The new 12TB and 14TB models use a helium-sealed design, enabling the 3.5-inch mechanical design to deliver increased storage density with a lower hard drive operating power profile. Toshiba laser welding technology and hard drive case design keeps the helium securely sealed inside the drive enclosure. The new 12TB and 14TB models operate at 7,200rpm and come with an ultra-high 256MB cache buffer and a SATA 6 Gbps interface.
The N300 NAS and X300 models use Toshiba’s advanced Stable Platter Technology to minimize vibrations by stabilizing the motor shaft at both ends for improved tracking accuracy and maximum performance during read and write operations. The N300 NAS models include rotational vibration (RV) sensors and deliver sustained data transfer speeds up to 260MB/s for 14TB or up to 253MB/s for 12TB. With support for up to 8 HDD multi-RAID systems, the new N300 models are highly scalable to the users’ NAS configurations as their data storage needs evolve large amounts of data need to be efficiently stored and accessed daily.
The N300 NAS Hard Drive series is designed for use in high-performance personal, home office and small business network attached storage applications such as for scalable RAID systems. The X300 Performance Hard Drive series delivers high performance and robust capacity for creative and professional applications including graphic design, animation, photo and video editing, and PC gaming.
When it comes to rated workloads and durability, Toshiba’s N300 drives are rated for 24/7 operation, up to 180TB per year workloads, and 1 million-hour MTTF. The X300 HDDs are not officially designed for 24/7 operation but they still feature reliability due to its Stable platter tech and the enterprise nature of the platform.
Unfortunately, no matter how good the new Toshiba’s N300 and X300 HDDs are, they are vulnerable to physical and logical failures that may result in data loss. To get their irreplaceable files back, the owners of the new N300 and X300 Toshiba HDDs will need to contact a reliable data recovery services provider.
