In particular, the Tech Data solutions business Global Computing Components (GCC), will offer Toshiba’s MG08 Enterprise Series Hard Drive, available in the second half of 2019. With a capacity of 16TB, this includes what it claims is the industry’s largest capacity CMR (conventional magnetic recording) HDD and is compatible with both cloud and traditional data centre environments.
