Seagate Updates Nytro Flash Storage

Today Seagate announced enhanced versions of two flash technologies to boost performance and capacity for mixed data center workloads. The updated solid-state drives — including the Nytro 5000 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSD and the Nytro 3000 Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD — address different segments of the cloud and data center markets and help organizations maximize the value of their data. Anticipating the needs of a range of hyperscale data centers and cloud providers in the future, Seagate also will highlight a 64-terabyte (TB) NVMe add-in card (AIC) reading 13 gigabytes per second (GB/s) — the fastest and highest-capacity SSD ever demonstrated. “Seagate is investing heavily in their already broad range of NVMe and SAS enterprise-class products aimed directly at the data center, cloud, and hyperscale storage markets,” said George Crump, lead analyst of Storage Switzerland. “With some product specifications increasing by as much as five times over the last generation, these products are ideally aligned to meet the ever expanding requirements of this market.”
