Toshiba’s 3.5-inch N300 NAS Hard Drive offers unprecedented reliability for NAS and other high-performance storage systems. It is optimized to meet the reliability, endurance, performance and scalability requirements of 24-hour x 7-day high-capacity storage for personal, home office and small business use. The N300 is available in capacities of up to 16 TB. DESIGNED FOR NAS Through its contact with NAS manufacturers, Toshiba recognizes the need for high-reliability disks in support of modern data storage and retrieval demands including streaming, backup and archiving. This drive, which can support multi-RAID systems with up to 8 hard disk drives, allows large volumes of data to be reliably stored and accessed by multiple clients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year INTEGRATED RV SENSORS Regular hard disk drives without RV sensors can affect the performance of a multi-bay NAS System by generating ‘knock-on’ vibration. N300 drives ensure high reliability by minimising vibration effects through their advanced control and sensing technology. Multiple sensors detect the slightest shock and built-in RV sensors also compensate for rotational vibration – eliminating the possibility of ‘knock-on’ vibration in multi-bay NAS configuration systems. RELIABLE ALWAYS-ON OPERATION NAS systems in small businesses or creative environments often need to be accessed by several users, at different locations, simultaneously. Therefore today’s NAS drives must deliver high data transfer rates and simultaneous upload and download 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Offering high reliability and scalability, N300 drives achieve a max. 180 TB/year workload factor, up to 3 times more than convenient desktop hard drives. HIGH DURABILITY AND HEAT PREVENTION Use of high-endurance components is one of the reasons why the N300 series offers better durability than other conventional hard disk drives. At the same time, automatic adjustment of seek speed to reduce heat during high-temperature operation further improves endurance in demanding situations. HIGH SPEED FOR MULTI-DRIVE ENVIRONMENT High performance and fast read speed are made possible under high data access loads from multiple users thanks 256 MB data buffer. This makes the drive suitable for small businesses and creative professionals looking for solutions to handle high data volumes using multi-RAID NAS environments.
