The HG6 SSD's incorporates Toshiba's error-correction technology known as QSBC, a highly efficient error correction code (ECC). This safeguards customer data from corruption caused by NAND wear, which improves drive reliability and extends the MTBF. It is also the first mainstream SSD product to use Toshiba's A19nm Toggle 2.0 MLC NAND media. These features make it a suitable solution for enterprise class servers.

 

Toshiba is capitalizing on its unique industry position of being both a NAND inventor and SSD solution provider to provide a highly optimized product. According to Don Jeanette, senior director of marketing at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit, "As inventors of NAND technology, we leverage our NAND expertise to optimize the performance and data integrity of this series, and truly give customers the power of choice with a broad selection of capacities and form factors."
