Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc.'s storage products division has launched the MK01GRRB/R series that features 6Gbit/s SAS interface and 300GB top capacity. It is the industry's highest-capacity 2.5-in high performance enterprise-class hard disk drive (HDD) with a rotational speed of 15,000RPM, claimed the company.

The Toshiba MK01GRRR models deliver drive-based encryption to help companies manage data security. It leverages an enhanced power condition state that reduces drive spin in idle states, drastically lowering power consumption, said Toshiba. Lower power consumption also means lower heat dissipation that increases system stability. This saves enterprises money and reduces the impact on the environment, the company added.

"Toshiba small form factor enterprise drives deliver the performance, capacity and security features IT administrators require for today's mission critical server, storage and cloud appliance markets," noted Joel Hagberg, VP of marketing at Toshiba's storage products business unit.

As part of its commitment to improved security, the Toshiba MK01GRRR drive features self-encryption technology designed to the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) 'Enterprise SSC' specification. SED technology provides simple and complete data security throughout the drive's usable life cyclewith no performance impactand enables organizations to crypto-graphically erase protected data securely, enabling the ability to return, service, repurpose, or retire drives without lengthy data overwrite operations or physical destruction of the drive.

The HDD measures 69.85 x 100.45 x 15mm and weighs 225g (max). It has operating and non-operating temperature ranges of 5C to 55C and -40C to 70C, respectively.
