The volume of hard drives Toshiba N300 and X300 increased to 18 TB

Toshiba has expanded its N300 NAS and X300 Performance hard drive lines with 18 TB models. They used the proprietary technology of "microwave heating" of the carrier Flux Control - Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording (FC-MAMR), which made it possible to increase the density of magnetic recording in comparison with CMR. The helium-filled containment of the new HDD contains spindles with nine plates that rotate at 7200 rpm.

The N300 series is optimized for use in networked storage for home and small businesses. The actuators are equipped with built-in RV sensors to compensate for rotational vibrations and are designed for 24/7 operation. MTBF reaches 1.2 million hours, and the rated workload is defined as 180 TB recording per year.

The X300 series drives are designed for PCs, desktop workstations, game consoles and home multimedia equipment. In their descriptions, a proprietary caching technology is noted that optimizes cache allocation during reading and write to ensure high performance.

The N300 series comes with a three-year warranty, and the X300 series comes with a two-year warranty. The 18 TB hard drives are expected to ship in the next quarter.
