IRVINE, Calif. – Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed technology leader, will take part in Silicon Valley’s first HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) Conference, being held at  Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) US Solution Center in San Jose, tomorrow, Oct. 6. Jeff (Shigeo) Ohshima, SSD Technology Executive, Storage & Electronic Devices Solutions at Toshiba, is scheduled to lead a breakout session during the event. Jeff is one of the world’s foremost experts in Flash Memory and was a featured keynote speaker at this year’s Flash Memory Summit. 

Businesses and clients are seeing growing demand for data access while the diversity of products and solutions blossoms. Toshiba integrates and optimizes its technology for data centers all over the world while continuing to develop innovative products that are utilized across a myriad of industries.

“We are thrilled to once again have a chance to be a part of QCT’s road to innovation in the storage space and have the opportunity to debut some of our new solutions at this event” said Steve Fingerhut, senior vice president, general manager of the storage products business unit of Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “At Toshiba, we are sure that our continued collaboration with QCT can bring world-class solutions with enhanced efficiency and scalability to data center clients across the globe.”

At the HCI Conference, Toshiba will demonstrate the new Toshiba PX05S Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) enterprise solid state drives, the PX04P Enterprise PCIe®1 NVMe SSDs, the HK4 Enterprise SATA SSDs and the AL14SE enterprise HDDs.

  • The PX05S series delivers high reliability, high performance and low power usage. The PX05S allows seamless integration of up to 4TB2 into 2.5 inch sockets requiring more performance than SATA and socket compatibility with HDDs.
  • The PX04P series features a 2.5 inch form factor and SFF-8639 connector and are available in one-half height, one-half length PCIe Add-in-card form factor. These NVMe SSDs are well suited for the maximum performance user.
  • The HK4 series delivers up to 1.92TB of Flash based storage with high reliability, consistent latency and a low power usage for value focused applications.
  • The AL14SE 10K rpm HDD line is optimized for applications requiring a balance between reduced latency and low cost for storage capacity. Designed for mission critical duty-cycles and performance, the AL14SE HDD models align well with hyper-converged platform use cases using both SSD and HDD together for optimum performance capacity.

Jeff (Shigeo) Ohshima’s breakout session, titled “New 3D Flash Technologies Offer High Performance and Low Power Solutions” will take place at 11:50 a.m. – 12:25 p.m. PST the day of the conference.

2Definition 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 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 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.
