HDD Data Recovery Toshiba

The 20TB Toshiba MG10 (MG10ACA20TE) HDD is the latest flagship drive for the MG product line, taking over from the 18TB drive. The three-capacity MG10 HDD product line is completed by a 16TB entry model. The 20TB HDD drive uses Toshiba’s fourth-generation ten disk / twenty head platform, using 2TB platter technology. The 20TB Toshiba MG10 HDD has a spindle speed of 7,200rpm and a 512MB cache. Toshiba quote a maximum sustained transfer rate of 268MB/s for the HDD drive.

The official power consumption figures for the 20TB Toshiba MG10 hard drive are 8.11W when operating (Random 4K read/write) and 4.38W in active idle. These are up slightly from the previous flagship 18TB HDD; 7.86W active, 4.17W active idle. The MG10 Series HDD uses Toshiba’s innovative Flux Control Microwave-assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR) technology. This advanced technology helps the MG10 Series HDDs to achieve optimum storage capacity and application compatibility, with high data reliability.

With 11.1% more capacity than Toshiba’s prior 18TB model, the Toshiba MG10ACA20TE MG10 HDDs are compatible with the widest range of applications and operating systems, and are adapted to mixed random and sequential read and write workloads in both cloud-scale and traditional data-center use cases.

Aimed at the enterprise segment, the 20TB MG10 HDD has a few tricks up its sleeve to keep working in a 24/7 365-day environment. To maintain maximum performance during operations the HDD supports Toshiba's Stable Platter and Dynamic Cache technologies. Stable Platter reduces vibrations by stabilizing the motor shaft at both ends while Dynamic Cache optimizes how the cache is allocated by a combination of a cache algorithm and onboard buffer management.

The MG series HDDs also make use of Persistent Write Cache Technology to protect data. If there is a power supply interruption while the drive is writing to the disc, the data is saved in the cache and written to the drive when the power is restored.

But no matter how good they are, the Toshiba MG10 (MG10ACA20TE) 20TB HDDs have moving parts and are vulnerable to physical failures, making critical business data inaccessible.
