How Toshiba 6TB Enterprise Cloud HDDs Optimize Cloud Storage

Cloud storage can be defined as "easily scalable storage" provisioned for "grow as you go" capacity. Cloud storage is "elastic" so users can allocate what they need, and pay for what they use. Cloud storage enables unbounded data growth for cloud services, such as Internet search, photo, video, or other unstructured data storage.

Cloud storage for cloud services includes both private and public cloud infrastructures. Private cloud storage is typically on-premises IT-provisioned storage, allocated on demand, typically providing web & file serving. Public cloud storage is typically allocated by 3rd party infrastructure, platform, application, or storage "as a service" vendors for storing enterprise data, or implemented as social media sites for sharing personal data...

User accessible data on a hard disk drive is organized into logical blocks called sectors. Sectors are, essentially, the amount of data that can be read from, or written to, a disk drive. Since the 1980s, sectors have almost universally been a 512-byte format, and operating systems, computer hardware and applications have been developed presuming 512-byte sectors to keep track of all the data files stored on the disk drive.

More recently though, the disk drive storage capacities have been increasing exponentially it seems with each new drive generation – from gigabytes to terabytes today. The result is that a single sector now represents a small fraction of the storage capacity. While this extra granularity may seem helpful, it actual...

What do you think of when you hear the words "media and entertainment" (M & E)? Chances are, images of the latest blockbuster movie or mega-sporting event flash through the 3D high-def screen in your mind, accompanied by a blaring full surround soundtrack. Last week's NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show 2015 in Las Vegas encapsulates that vision. 4K/6K cameras, green screens, drones, video editing, broadcast distribution – NAB is all about the technology used to create, capture, transfer, manipulate, and bring that media to you.

Perhaps the most important, but not as glamorous, technology used in M&E, is data storage. In a nutshell, al...
