Toshiba has spent decades developing strong partnerships with original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) customers – some of the world's largest and best
known systems and consumer electronics companies.
The enterprise market requires specialist knowledge and technology to support
organizations that generate and store a massive amount of business data that
must be accessible 24/7. Enterprise computing systems – servers, workstations,
SAN and NAS systems, RAID, and storage subsystems – demand a delicate
balance of performance, efficiency, availability, and capacity. With these
factors in mind, Toshiba delivers a full range of enterprise storage HDDs
and SSDs which enable customers to architect optimized solutions across all
tiers of the enterprise.
Toshiba is the pioneer of small form factor HDDs and SSDs -- and is a consistent business and technology leader in the mobile market. Since first delivering 2.5-inch HDDs in 1985, Toshiba has consistently produced products that offer customers unprecedented flexibility and customization. Our wide line of storage devices includes the industry's highest capacities – key in today's digital mobile products. Toshiba also leads in enhanced security for mobile hard drives and is at the forefront of delivering next-generation disk security.
Toshiba storage products are used in many of today's hottest consumer electronics products, with storage solutions that meet the demands of increasingly sophisticated applications such as PCs, gaming consoles, personal storage devices, digital video recorders, portable media players, digital audio players, and other consumer electronics products. Toshiba's mobile hard disk drives are optimized for shock resistance and lower power needs, which helps customers in their quest to create products with industry-leading reliability and usability.
Toshiba has partnered with the automotive industry and its suppliers for more than 10 years to perfect its auto-grade HDD technology. Toshiba storage solutions provide automotive system designers with ruggedized and temperature-capable automotive-grade hard disk drives for in-car navigation, infotainment, and other automotive applications. Since introducing the industry's first automotive-grade HDD in 2001, Toshiba has shipped more than 10 million automotive-grade hard disk drives.
In addition to leading the industry in the development of 2.5-inch mobile drives, Toshiba helped to ignite the start of the digital music revolution with the first high-capacity, high-volume 1.8-inch disk drives. Toshiba has enjoyed market leadership in this form factor since 2000 and continues to ship these drives to specialty markets today.
Toshiba has been providing storage solutions worldwide since 1967 and is
a global leader in hard disk drive design, manufacturing, and marketing.
Toshiba drives can be found in a broad range of systems from PCs and consumer
electronics to data centers that deliver information across corporate networks
and the Internet. A leader in emerging technologies and standards, Toshiba
was the first HDD manufacturer to commercialize perpendicular magnetic recording
(PMR) for hard disk drives. Leveraging an annual $3.1 billion investment
in research and development, we continue to push the boundaries of storage
technology to meet customers' needs. Whether in capacity, power, form factor,
