Seagate unveils SSD product line


Seagate Technology has announced its new portfolio of flash-memory solutions: its first client solid state drive (SSD) and its next-generation enterprise SSDs.

Featuring the Seagate 600 SSD, Seagate 600 Pro SSD, and the Seagate 1200 SSD, the new line of drives are engineered to deliver "ultra-fast speed and high data integrity," says Gary Gentry, senior vice president and general manager of Seagate’s solid state drive business. Rounding out the portfolio, Seagate also announced the new Seagate X8 Accelerator, a storage class memory PCIe card powered by Virident enabling the company to offer all key interfaces including SATA and SAS solutions.

Designed for laptops, the Seagate 600 SSD delivers faster boot-up speeds, shorter application load times, and improved system responsiveness, Gentry says. Laptop users can boot up nearly four times faster and load applications more than two times faster than with a standard hard drive, he adds.

The Seagate 600 SSD is available in multiple z-heights including an industry-first, diminutive 5mm-high drive, so it works with most ultra-thin devices as well as standard laptop systems. The drive features up to 480GB of capacity and comes in a 2.5 form factor. It also incorporates a 6Gb/s SATA interface.

A low power server and storage solution, the Seagate 600 Pro SSD is designed for cloud system builders, hyperscale datacenters, cloud service providers, content delivery networks, and virtualized environments. An entry-level enterprise SATA SSD, the 600 Pro SSD combines fast performance and lower power delivering best-in-class performance efficiency and IOPS/watt value, according to Gentry.

Engineered with efficiency in mind, the 600 Pro SSD features the industry’s highest IOPS/watt to improve system performance while reducing power and cooling costs for transaction-hungry datacenters and cloud enterprise applications, he adds. Utilizing 2.8 watts typical operating power, the drive reduces energy by automatically adjusting the power consumption to workload I/O levels -- using less power for lighter workloads. The drive is also equipped with the "intelligenc"e to deliver high-data integrity, safeguarding against unexpected power loss and undetected corruption when a device is powered off.

The Seagate 600 Pro SSD is available with up to 480GB capacity and comes in 2.5-inch form factor. It's equipped with a 6Gb/s SATA interface.

The Seagate 1200 SSD is designed for demanding enterprise storage and server applications with complex, write-intensive mixed workloads, such as high-performance computing and data analytics. It uses algorithms that optimize performance for frequently accessed data by prioritizing which storage operations, reads or writes, occur first and optimizing where it's stored. The result is improved performance to help close the gap between processor and data access, according to Gentry.

The 1200 SSD incorporates a dual port 12Gb/s SAS connector. The drive is also backwards compatible with 6Gb/s SAS environments. The Seagate 1200 SSD is available with up to 800GB capacity and comes in either a 1.8-inch or 2.5 inch form factor.

The Seagate X8 Accelerator, powered by Virident, delivers memory-class performance and storage-class capacity with enterprise reliability and data integrity in a single, low profile PCIe card, according to Gentry. Providing performance, with up to 1.1 million IOPS, the X8 Accelerator boosts server performance with ultra-fast speed that is up to 2X faster than the closest competitor and closer to DRAM performance than storage, he adds.

Boasting high storage capacity (up to 2.2TB) in a small footprint, it's designed to fit in any server. The card boasts a x8 PCI Express Gen-2 interface. For more information on Seagate’s entire portfolio of flash memory products go to http://seagate.com/www/ssd/ .
