The new 8TB drive is for business critical servers and shared storage systems, with a pretty decent 33% increase over its previous-gen drives. The new 8TB model is on the 6Gbps SATA interface, and on the larger 3.5-inch HDD form factor. Toshiba is on a roll, with IDC recently calling Toshiba the fastest growing HDD vendor in 2016, and now Toshiba is moving its 8TB drive into the enterprise and data center markets.
