Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation's New Surveillance Hard Disk Drive Series Delivers up to 10TB Capacity

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 28, 2017

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation today announced the launch of MD06ACA-V Series of 3.5-inch[1] hard disk drives (HDD) for surveillance applications that deliver up to 10TB[2] of storage capacity. Sample shipments start today.

In order to improve security, today’s surveillance systems deploy more and higher definition cameras and store image data for longer periods. The latest systems offer live monitoring and streaming from networked cameras in remote locations. These image-heavy services require HDD offering higher capacities and higher performance.

MD06ACA-V Series air-based HDD meet performance requirements with an improved magnetic recording head and disk magnetic layer, and are available in 10TB, 8TB and 6TB capacities. They all deliver 7,200 rpm, a 256MiB[3] buffer memory, and the 10TB model’s data transfer rate[4] of 237 MiB/s is a 58%[5] increase over products in the previous MD04ABA-V Series.

The new drives offer 24/7 operation, incorporate rotational vibration (RV) sensors, and can support up to 64 high definition cameras[6]. With a rated annual workload[7] of 180TB transferred, MTTF[8] of 1,000,000 hours, and a wide case temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees[9], they are suited to use in diverse surveillance applications.

[1] "3.5-inch" refers to the form factor of HDDs. It indicates the size of the disks, not the HDD's physical size.

[2] Definition of capacity: A terabyte (TB) is 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

[3] A mebibyte (MiB) is 220, or 1,048,576 bytes.

[4] Read and write speeds may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.

[5] Comparison with MD04ABA500V transfer rate : 150 MiB/s

[6] Number of surveillance cameras support capability is defined by performance simulation with High Definition cameras at 10Mbit/s rate. Actual results may vary based on various factors, including the types of cameras installed, the system’s hardware and software capabilities, and the video compression technology used, as well as system variables such as resolution, frames per second, and other settings.

[7] Workload is a measure of the data throughput of the year, and it is defined as the amount of data written, read or verified by commands from the host system.

[8] MTTF (mean time to failure) is not a guarantee or estimate of product life; it is a statistical value related to mean failure rates for a large number of products, which may not accurately reflect actual operation. The actual operating life of the product may differ from the MTTF.

[9] Operation of the drive when it has a high surface temperature will shorten its useful life. The recommended operating condition is with a surface temperature of less than 60℃.
