Seagate’s new flash-memory solutions aim enterprises

Infotech Lead India: Seagate Technology launched its new flash-memory solutions targeting enterprises.

Seagate’s new flash-memory solutions feature Seagate 600 SSD, Seagate 600 Pro SSD, and the Seagate 1200 SSD.

Seagate X8 Accelerator, a storage class memory PCIe card powered by Virident, enables the company to offer all key interfaces including SATA and SAS solutions.

Gary Gentry, senior vice president and general manager of Seagate’s solid state drive business, said: “By adding more SSDs to our family of hard disk and solid state hybrid drives, we now have the broadest portfolio of storage products in the industry, delivering one-stop shopping for our customers and partners.”

The Seagate 600 SSD delivers faster boot up speeds, shorter application load times, and improved system responsiveness. Laptop users can boot up nearly four times faster and load applications more than two times faster than with a standard hard drive, reducing the amount of wait time to access content.

The Seagate 600 SSD is available in multiple z-heights including 5mm-high drive making it ideal for ultra-thin devices and standard laptop systems. The drive features up to 480GB of capacity and comes in a 2.5 form factor. It incorporates a 6Gb/s SATA interface for fast data transfer rates and easy connection.

The Seagate 600 Pro SSD is ideal for cloud system builders, hyperscale datacenters, cloud service providers, content delivery networks, and virtualized environments.

The Seagate 600 Pro SSD is available with up to 480GB capacity and comes in 2.5-inch form factor. It is equipped with a 6Gb/s SATA interface for fast data transfer rates and easy connection to existing SATA infrastructure.

The Seagate 1200 SSD incorporates a dual port 12Gb/s SAS connector providing 100 percent faster interface speed, over previous generations, for twice the I/O bandwidth while ensuring the highest level of reliability, availability and scalability. The drive is 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.
