Toshiba Corp., a leading maker of electronics, has entered the market of enterprise storage by announcing its first 2.5” hard disk drive (HDD) with 10 000rpm spindle speed. It is a rather a surprise that Toshiba has not entered enterprise storage space with solid-state drives (SSDs), but perhaps HDDs were a requirement of the company’s clients, which it obtained with the acquisition of Fujitsu’s hard drive biz in 2009.

Toshiba’s enterprise storage MBF2xxxRC hard disk drive family includes models with 300GB, 450GB and 600GB capacities. The drives come in 2.5” form-factor, feature Serial ATA 2.0 interface with 600Gb/s speed, 16MB of cache and idle power consumption from 2.5W to 3.5W. Toshiba declares 4.0ms average read seek time and 4.4ms average write seek time. According to the company, the internal transfer rate in the MBF2xxxRC family is boosted by 13%, from 191.5MB/s to 216MB/s, compared with the previous generation MBD2300RC, due to improved linear recording density, and overall performance increased by realizing high speed seek time.

The new drives also offer an optional drive-based encryption design that secures data when end of lease, during disposal and recycling.

Improvements to the magnetic recording head and disk's magnetic layer gives the MBF2600RC an areal density of 595Mbit/mm² (384Gbpsi), highest areal density for 2.5” enterprise drives, and realizes 600GB capacity.

Toshiba did not reveal pricing or availability details regarding the novelties.
