Capacity-Optimized Storage Systems

The MG06 Enterprise Capacity HDD models provides up to 10 TB of capacity and 7,200 rpm performance in a robust design engineered for nearline business-critical workloads.

The MG06 Series utilizes industry-standard 3.5-inch 26.1 mm height form factor and Advanced Format sector technologies for optimum capacity and data reliability. Toshiba Persistent Write Cache technology helps enhance performance while also maintaining data integrity in the event of a sudden loss of power. 

The MG06A Series is equipped with SATA 6.0 Gbit/s interface and the MG06S Series is equipped with 12 Gbit/s SAS interface, designed to help to save rack space and reduce the footprint and operational burden of business critical servers and storage systems. 512e or 4Kn Advanced Format sector technology models are available. The MG06A Series improves sustained transfer rate performance to 237 MiB/s and increases MTTF/MTBF by 25% when compared to the prior MG05 series. 4Kn sector models offer suitable performance and compatibility with the 4Kn-capable applications and operating environments. 512e models are broadly supported today and also help provide support for legacy applications and operating environments that require 512 B sector lengths.

  • Instructions for Dispose
    Please dispose in accordance with local rules.
  • Instructions for erase of the data on the HDDs in case of dispose or transfer
    HDDs incorporated in personal computer or several home appliance may record personal data and/or other important data as signal. In order to avoid disclosing such data, it is important to erase it when you dispose or transfer the HDDs.
  • Product image may represent a design model.
  • Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes.  A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 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, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.
  • A kibibyte (KiB) means 210, or 1,024 bytes, a mebibyte (MiB) means 220, or 1,048,576 bytes, and a gibibyte (GiB) means 230, or 1,073,741,824 bytes.
  • MTTF / MTBF (Mean Time to Failure / Mean Time Between Failures) 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 be different from the MTTF/MTBF.
  • Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
  • SIE: Sanitize Instant Erase. SIE is a function to invalidate the data recorded on the magnetic disks at a blink.
  • SED supports TCG Enterprise SSCs.
  • "3.5-inch" mean the form factor of HDDs. They do not indicate drive's physical size.
  • 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.
