Maximum Rated Workload

Maximum rate of 180TB/year.
Workloads exceeding the annualized rate may degrade 
the drive MTBF and impact product reli- ability. 
The Annualized Workload Rate is in units of TB per year, 
or TB per 8760 power on hours. 
Workload Rate = TB transferred * 
(8760 / recorded power on hours).
