Expanding on its Nytro portfolio of enterprise flash products, Seagate today announced the launch of its new Nytro 1000 Series SATA SSD drives.
The Seagate Nytro 1000 SATA SSD series (which includes the Nytro 1351 and Nytro 1551 SSDs) delivers consistent performance for read-intensive workloads. Globally available in the fall, the Nytro SSDs is being demonstrated at this week's Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara.
The Nytro SSD series is designed to serve as the backbone of the enterprise's cloud infrastructure.
Seagate DuraWrite technology is a lossless data reduction technology which compresses data flowing through Seagate's internally-developed controller. The NAND flash memory inside SSDs is sensitive to the cumulative amount of data written to it; the more data written to flash, the shorter the SSD's service life and the sooner its performance will degrade.
Seagate's DuraWrite technology uses intelligent lossless compression techniques to reduce the amount of data stored on the flash. That enables up to 3.5 times higher random-write performance than competitive offerings, along with greater power efficiency and cost savings.
The Nytro SSD offers random-write performance of 55,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second). The SSD is available in several capacity options, from 240GB up to 3.84TB.
The line also supports "tunable capacity," which means data center managers get the flexibility to optimize the drive for performance or capacity considerations. In addition, it comes with a range of Seagate Secure data-protection options for security.
