Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced that Super Micro Computer has successfully qualified the MG07ACA Series 14TB and 12TB HDD SATA models on select Supermicro storage server platforms. Using a 9-disk, helium-sealed design, the new MG07ACA Series provides power-efficient capacity and storage density, which is now available on Supermicro’s popular SuperStorage (SSG) line-up of server platforms.
The MG07 Series 14TB capacity allows data center customers a choice of storage server platform solutions available through Supermicro’s extensive network of distributors as well as systems and solutions integrators.
"Toshiba is pleased to be working with Supermicro on solutions utilising the MG07ACA Series helium-sealed HDD. The innovative, power-efficient 9-disk design delivers the highest capacity available in the market today using conventional magnetic recording", said Larry Martinez-Palomo, General Manager, HDD Business Unit, Toshiba Electronics Europe.
"Our continued development of solutions, that meet the growing capacity needs of enterprise and cloud data center customers, matches up well with Supermicro’s highly-regarded lineup of server and storage solutions."
“Being first-to-market with storage servers qualified to support 14TB hard drives puts Supermicro and Toshiba in a strong position to better support our customers with high-capacity storage solutions,” said Michael McNerney, vice president, Software Solutions and Network Security, Supermicro.
“Leveraging Supermicro’s complete portfolio of open industry standard storage optimised servers with maximum efficiency, customers can now maximise the storage capacity per server node by using 14TB SATA drives and achieve even better cost per TB.”
The MG07ACA Series features both 14TB 9-disk and 12TB 8-disk models. The helium-sealed 3.5in mechanical design realises better storage density and a lower HDD operating power profile, achieving a 40% increase in maximum capacity and 50% better power efficiency (W/GB) over 10TB HDD models.
The 14TB and 12TB MG07ACA Series SATA disk drives are available to order today as disk options for select SuperStorage (SSG) server models from Supermicro.
