Toshiba unveils 14TB HDD SATA drives availability on select Supermicro storage servers



Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) announced on Monday that Super Micro Computer Inc. has 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 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.

The MG07ACA Series features both 14TB 9-disk and 12TB 8-disk models. The helium-sealed 3.5-inch mechanical design realizes better storage density and a lower HDD operating power profile, achieving a 40% increase in maximum capacity and 50 percent better power efficiency (W/GB) over 10TB HDD models.

“As we continue to develop solutions to meet the growing capacity needs of enterprise and cloud data center customers, Toshiba is pleased to be working with Supermicro on solutions utilizing our new MG07ACA Series helium-sealed HDD,” said Kyle Yamamoto, vice president of HDD Business Unit, Toshiba America. “Toshiba’s innovative, power-efficient 9-disk design delivers the highest capacity available in the market today using conventional magnetic recording, and 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 optimized servers with maximum efficiency, customers can now maximize the storage capacity per server node by using 14TB SATA drives and achieve even better cost per TB.”

The 14TB and 12TB MG07ACA Series SATA disk drives are available to order as disk options for select SuperStorage (SSG) server models from Supermicro.
