Seagate Offers New SSD and HDD for Enterprise Storage and More
 
 

Seagate has announced the unveiling of several new storage products. These products are mostly aimed at the enterprise market, but some will be available in the channel later. Among the new offerings are a pair of Savvio HDDs, a new Constellation HDD, and two new Pulsar SSDs.

The new Pulsar drives include the Pulsar.2 and the Pulsar XT.2. The .2 SSD is the first MLC SSD from an enterprise HDD vendor and can be had in up to 800GB capacity. The new SSD is designed for longevity and robust data integrity. It can automatically detect and correct a number of data errors. It supports 6Gb/s SAS and 6Gb/s SATA ports. The XT.2 is a 2.5-inch CLS SSD that is offered in 6Gb/s SAS connectivity with up to 400GB of storage.

The XT.2 has a 2M hour MTBF rating and is the fastest SSD in the Seagate line. The drive is capable of 360MB/s reads and 300MB/s writes. It also has sustainable random read rates of 48K and writes at 22K IOPS. Both of the new Pulsar SSDs will ship in Q2.

HP continues to see new opportunities for solid state storage technology as customers increase virtual system workloads, needing higher performance while reducing power requirements,” said Jim Ganthier, HP Industry Standard Software and Systems vice president of Marketing. “HP continues to look forward to storage technology advances from Seagate including wider SSD enablement across HP systems and workloads.”

The Savvio 15K.3 and 10K.5 HDDs are both 2.5-inch form factor offerings that use the 6Gb/s SAS interface. The 10K.5 can be had in up to 900GB capacity and is also offered in a 4Gb Fibre channel version. The 15K.3 is the best performing HDD that Seagate has with capacity up to 300GB.

The Constellation ES.2 is the last of the new HDDs and it is the highest capacity enterprise class HDD available. The drive can be had in up to 3TB capacity and it supports Seagate RAID Rebuild tech. That means that it can reduce the downtime users experience when a RAID array is being rebuilt. The drive is a 3.5" form factor and will come in 6GB/s SATA and 6Gb/s SAS with shipping set for Q2.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
