Toshiba is launching the MD06ACA-V Series of 3.5-inch hard disk drives (HDD) for surveillance applications that deliver up to 10TB of storage capacity.
The new air-based HDDs feature improved magnetic recording head and disk magnetic layer, and are available in 10TB, 8TB and 6TB capacities. They all deliver 7,200 rpm, a SATA 6Gbit/s interface, a 256MiB buffer memory, and the 10TB model's data transfer rate of 237 MiB/s is a 58% increase over products in the Toshiba's previous MD04ABA-V Series.
The drives offer 24/7 operation, incorporate rotational vibration (RV) sensors, and can support up to 64 high definition cameras. With a rated annual workload of 180TB transferred, MTTF of 1,000,000 hours, and a wide case temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees, they are suited to use in diverse surveillance applications.
