Toshiba Launches 8TB1 High-Reliability Consumer HDD Series

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. announces the N300 Series 3.5-inch internal NAS (Network Attached Storage) consumer HDDs for personal, home office and small business use. The high-reliability drives are optimized for the performance, reliability, endurance and scalability required of NAS environments in which large amounts of data need to be efficiently stored and accessed daily.

 

The N300 Series is available in 4TB, 6TB, and 8TB capacities; all featuring a large 128MB data buffer. With support for up to eight drive bays in a multi-RAID NAS2 design, users’ NAS configurations can grow in line with their evolving data storage needs. Additionally, Toshiba’s Dynamic Cache Technology, a self-contained cache algorithm with on-board buffer management, optimizes cache allocation during read/write to provide the high-level performance demanded by real-time domains.

 

The N300 Series HDDs will be available April 2017. Each will include a three-year standard limited warranty. For more information, visit http://www.storage.toshiba.com
