Toshiba Intros 14TB Conventional Magnetic Recording HDD

Toshiba announces the MG07ACA series-- the first 14TB conventional magnetic recording (CMR) HDDs from the company based on a 9-disk helium-sealed design, aimed at cloud-scale and enterprise storage applications.

The MG07ACA comes in 14TB 9-disk and 12TB 8-disk models. According to the company, the helium-sealed 3.5-inch mechanical design allows for better storage density and a lower HDD operating power profile than the previous MG06ACA series. Laser welding technology ensures the helium remains sealed inside the enclosure.

Connectivity comes through SATA 6Gbit/s, while access performance reaches 7200RPM. The 9-disk 14TB models achieve a 40% increase in maximum capacity over previous MG06ACA 10TB models, as well as a power efficiency improvement of over 50%.

StorONE Launches TRU Storage

Israeli storage startup StorONE claims to re-invent the storage stack with TRU (Total Resource Utilisation)-- a storage array controller able to provide file, block and object storage on the same drives.

TRU supports all kinds of drives (namely NVMe, SAS, SATA, SSDs and HDDs) on the same server, together with all storage protocols (block, file and object). It can provide 650000 random read 4K IOPS and effectively unlimited snapshots, and scales up to 18Gb/sec of throughput and 15PB capacity.

StorONE claims a single HDD JBOD can provide 5Gbps with high capacity utilisation, while a single virtual appliance with low resources and just 4 SSDs can reach performance comparable to a midrange storage solution. Customers can install TRU storage as a physical server or virtual appliance, and it runs on any white label hardware, vendor hardware or hyper-converged infrastructure.

IBM Boosts Flash Storage Offering

The IBM all-flash storage hardware and software portfolio gets an update, with an upgrade to 3D TLC flash bringing improvements across all products in making the FlashCore line.

The transition to 3D TLC flash promises to lower both CAPEX and OPEX costs, drive systems and datacentre ROI, as well as increase storage density through the addition of hardware-accelerated inline data compression. This move is seen in the FlashSystem 900, which is used in the FlashSystem V9000 and A9000.

The updated FlashSystem V9000 offers scale-up and scale-out options, allowing improved efficiency while delivering enterprise-class data services. Meanwhile the A9000 and A9000R provide enhanced HyperScale capabilities and easier integration with existing XIV systems.

WD Unveils Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording

WD Unveils Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording

Western Digital's "Innovating to Fuel the Next Decade of Big Data" event hosts the presentation microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR)-- a technology the company allows for future HDDs with over 40TB capacity.

MAMR promises "all the gain without the gain" of the other energy-assisted HDD technology, heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). According to WD, MAMR manages such a breakthrough through a "spin torque oscillator," a means to generate a microwave field able to increase the ability to record data at ultra-high density without sacrificing reliability.

As such, WD claims MAMR enables recordings reaching 4 terabits-per-square-inch over time, allowing the creation of HDDs with 40TB capacity and beyond by 2025, before even further expansion beyond that timeline. The company has been working on the technology for over 8 years, and is confident it has a "multiple-year lead" over the competition.
