Message Text: Toshiba today launched a line-up of four 2.5-inch enterprise HDDs with a 10,500 RPM rotation speed. The new drives include the AL13SEB900, which offers a capacity of 900GB.

An improved perpendicular magnetic recording technology head and a disk with an enhanced magnetic layer give the AL13SEB900 an areal density of 856Mbit/mm2 (552Gbpsi) and realizes a 900GB capacity, the industry's highest class.

The AL13SEB900 family is the first HDD series from Toshiba to employ a dual-stage head positioning actuator. It integrates a fine actuator with piezoelectric element on the tip of tracking arm that improves on the positioning accuracy of a single stage head positioning actuator by approximately 30%. Highly accurate tracking in a narrow tracking band secures stable operation and improves the reliability of reading and writing.

The energy consumption efficiency of AL13SEB900 is approximately 41% higher than that of its predecessor, MBF2600RC, due to lower power consumption by the controller IC and increased storage capacity. The AL13SEB900 family is also compatible with the European Union's RoHS directive and is Halogen-Free/Antimony-Free.

Toshiba's new HDD line has been designed for enterprise applications, such as servers and storage systems. Volume shipments will start in August.
