Toshiba Corp. has expanded its portfolio of enterprise performance hard disk drives (HDD) with the introduction of the AL13SXB series and the self-encrypting AL13SXQ series. Intended for mission-critical enterprise applications, the AL13SX series offers capacities up to 600GB, the largest-class storage capacity in a 15,000 RPM 2.5in design, double the maximum capacity of previous generation drives. The drives provide lower latency and power savings compared with legacy 3.5in 15,000 RPM 600GB models, stated the company.

Customers have the choice of AL13SX drives that support 512n(native), 512e(emulation) or 4Kn storage formats. The long sector models (512e and 4Kn) reach sustained transfer rates up to 243MiB/s, an increase of 27 percent compared to previous generation drives. The 512n models provide an increase of 19 percent, with sustained transfer rates reaching 228 MiB/s.


Customers also can select a Sanitize Devise Feature set function, which makes it possible to quickly invalidate data recorded on the magnetic disks. The long sector models provide persistent write cache technologies that help protect against data-loss in the event of sudden power loss.

The products are also halogen- and antimony-free and RoHS compatible. Sample shipping will start from the middle of March.
