Toshiba Europe Storage Device Division (SDD) has remained at the forefront of the storage industry for over 20 years and markets high quality hard disk drives to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), system integrators and distributors throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Throughout its history, Toshiba SDD has pioneered the design and development of small form factor storage devices and set many industry standards for HDD technology. As one of the first companies to identify the need for high capacity, high performance storage solutions beyond notebook PCs, Toshiba’s HDD technology can be found inside the world’s leading GPS navigation systems, portable media players and more entertainment systems. To date, Toshiba has sold more than 200 million small form factor hard disk drives worldwide.
The company also pioneered the development of automotive grade HDDs and to date, the world’s leading car equipment manufacturers have incorporated Toshiba HDDs into their car equipment systems. Today, Toshiba is the preferred partner in the automotive industry with a worldwide market share of 85%. But not only notebook PCs, consumer products and automotive in-car systems benefit from hard disk drives, the implementation of HDDs is also rapidly increasing in industrial applications including retail, manufacturing and security. Very similar to Toshiba’s range of automotive hard disk drives, the Temperature Enhanced Drives (TED) deliver unsurpassed reliability amid extreme operating conditions withstanding temperature rages from -30° C to +85°C and at high altitudes. This new hard disk drive technology enables unparalleled flexibility and opens new dimensions in service and production management.
