Intended for media applications, and based on the firm’s MG10 20TB HDDs, the system is capable of up to 1.2PB of raw storage.

In digital media storage, capacity requirements are continuously increasing due to the amount and resolution of media being stored. Video and audio footage requires extensive storage at the lowest cost-per-capacity possible, but still at a high RW speed. Ongoing innovation in HDD technology and the surrounding system architecture and components means that HDD-based solutions will remain the preferred technology for large and cost effective media storage.

At their booth this year, the company will be featuring a live performance demo of a complete high performance, high capacity storage system, based upon their market HDDs.

System will comprise:

At the heart of the system will be 60 of the firm’s 3.5” 20TB SAS MG10SCA HDDs. The MG10 series features company’s 4th-Gen, 10-disk helium-sealed design to advance Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) density to 2TB/disk.

These 60 HDDs run in a Promise VTrak J5960 JBOD, connected to the head-node control server using Atto’s ESAH-12 SAS Host Bus Adaptors. On the AIC SB202-TU head-node server, the JovianDSS software from Open-E implements a ZFS pool delivering iSCSI targets and shared folders through a 100GbE network based on Atto FFRM-N4 NIC cards to the application demo server.

IBC 2023 is where the future of the global M&E industry is defined and actioned, bringing the creative, technology and business communities together to collaborate, learn and unlock new opportunities.

Toshiba can be found at IBC where its team and specialists from Open-E and Promise will be available to discuss the live demo. Atto will provide support from their booth.
