“MN06ACA10T” air-based HDD delivers 10TB capacity by deploying an improved magnetic recording head and disk magnetic layer. The 10TB capacity is 25% higher than that of the previous model in the series, the 8TB MN05ACA800, and buffer size is doubled to 256 MiB[4].

The new drive is designed for 24/7 power-on operation, has a rated annual workload of 180TB[5] transferred, MTTF[6] of 1,000,000 hours, and 300,000 load/unload cycles. It features rotational vibration compensation technology, and is suitable for use in NAS applications.

[1] 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.

[2] "3.5-inch" describes the form factor of HDDs. They do not indicate drive's physical size.

[3] NAS: Network Attached Storage

[4] A mebibyte (MiB) means 220, or 1,048,576 bytes.

[5] 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.

[6] 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. Actual operating life of the product may differ from the MTTF.
