Seagate Unveils SSD And HDD Storage Solutions

Seagate Technology has announced its latest enterprise solutions designed to deliver storage for a wide range of application environments. These solutions include: two new members of the Pulsar Solid State Drive (SSD) family, two next-generation Savvio 15K and 10K hard disk drives (HDD) and the latest Constellation ES.2 3TB HDD.

The Pulsar.2 SSD is an MLC-enabled, (up to 800GB) SSD from an enterprise HDD vendor. It has been designed from the ground up for the enterprise. It has the intelligence to detect and correct a multitude of data errors than can occur during normal drive operations. By enabling MLC NAND technology for the enterprise, this drive addresses the market concerns on SSD cost and endurance and will enable adoption of SSDs in the enterprise. The Pulsar.2 supports both native 6Gb/s SAS and SATA 6Gb/s interfaces.

The Pulsar XT.2 is a 2.5-inch, SLC-based, native 6Gb/s SAS, up to 400GB enterprise SSD. It is the fastest drive in the Seagate portfolio, with sustainable random reads at 48K and writes at 22K IOPS and sequential reads at 360MB/sec and writes at 300MB/sec. The Pulsar XT.2 is optimised for real world, complex, mixed workloads typical of enterprise environments.

Seagate's Savvio 2.5-inch small form factor enterprise class HDDs are built to deliver high performance, reliability, and capacity for tier 1, mission-critical server and storage systems. The Savvio 10K.5 delivers high capacity in a 2.5-inch mission-critical HDD with up to 900GB, enabling easier and more flexible storage upgrades to create high capacity, high performance systems. The Savvio 15K.3 has capacities available at 300GB and 146GB, Savvio 15K.3 is well-suited for performance-oriented systems that can remain cost-effective to IT budgets and fit a wide range of applications.

The new Constellation ES.2 HDD has 3TB capacities and powers both server and bulk storage solutions, maximising the storage footprint by supporting up to 114TB per square foot. It also introduces a new Seagate RAID Rebuild feature for enterprise HDDs. With large capacity drives comes longer RAID recovery times, but with the new Seagate RAID Rebuild development platform, customers can significantly reduce hours of lost productivity during RAID recoveries.

"The surge in storage consumption is being driven not only by the growth of content and use within the enterprise, but also by new applications and devices that directly or indirectly consume enterprise storage," said Kurt Richarz, EVP-Product Line Management, Seagate. "Seagate's new family of enterprise storage solutions meets the diverse storage needs of these high growth application environments, whether it's fast transactional database servers, bulk storage and archiving, or everything in between."
