Seagate Expands Its Nytro SSD Family
This week at FMS 2018 in Santa Clara, Seagate Technologies announced that it was expanding its Nytro portfolio adding more SSD flash drives. Though the company has some SSDs for end users, it announced more enterprise SSDs including the Nytro 1000 SATA and Nytro 5020 NVMe. These new enterprise drives are aimed at data centers looking to upgrade their current storage.
The Seagate Nytro 1000 SATA SSD ranges in capacity form 240GB up to 3.82TB. Being SATA, the drive works well as a HDD replacement. The 1000 (and the 5020) come with DuraWrite technology. DuraWrite reduces data stored on the flash to increase dynamic over-provisioning. This can lead to greater performance and longer endurance. The 5020 is an NVMe drive that offers consistent, predictable IOPS and claims to have the lowest IOPS and MB/s per Watt in the industry.
- Energy Savings: Nytro SSD drives require less energy to run 24x7, effectively saving on cooling and overall energy costs. Installing Nytro SSD results in noticeable cost reduction for workloads handled on-premises.
- Dependability: The most reliable data storage technology, the Nytro SSD updates existing data center infrastructure with robust features, improved quality of service, and enhanced user experience. The power loss data protection feature helps ensure data integrity and prevent data loss in the event of unexpected power failure, enabling data inflight to be saved into the NAND flash. Seagate Secure delivers peace of mind, ensuring secure supply chain, secure download and diagnostics, and instant secure erase.
- Versatility: The Nytro 1000 SATA SSD series offers best-in-class versatility, with a tunable capacity feature that increases random write performance by up to 120 percent or provides maximum capacity to the user. Unique data reduction technology, DuraWrite, delivers industry-leading write performance and best-in- class read/write performance, up to 2.3x higher than the competition.
