Seagate releases new enterprise NVMe SSDs

United States storage giant Seagate has released two new non-volatile solid state storage drives, aimed at providing high performance and efficiency for enterprise applications running in data centres.

The Nytro 5350 NVMe SSD promises up to 7.4 gigabits per second bandwidth, and up to 195,000 input/output operations per second, Seagate said.

This, the company said, results in a doubling of read throughput compared to Serial Attached SCSI SSDs and provides ten times the bandwidth of Serial ATA.

Nytro 5350 comes with up to 15.36 terabytes of capacity in 15 millimetre form factor, and up to 7.68 TB in the slimmer 7 mm shape with dual ports.

Seagate says the durability of the Nytro 5350 is one drive write per day at 2.5 hours million mean time between failures.

Like the top of the line Nytro 5550, the 5350 uses a PCI Express Gen4 interface to host systems.

Nytro 5550 is designed for mixed workloads Seagate said, with random writes of up to 470 k IOPS, and random reads of up to 1.7 m IOPS.

In 15 mm form factor, the Nytro 5550 can fit up to 12.8 TB of storage, and in 7 mm form factor, 6.4 TB.

The Nytro 5550 has an endurance rating of 3 DWPD at 2.5 MTBF and a five year warranty.

Both drives are made with technology from NAND flash controller technology company Phison Electronics, which has partnered with Seagate for making SSD products for the past five years.

Other features for the drives include power loss data protection, self-encryption, and parity check codes to catch undetected and unintentional corruption.

Seagate said the drives will be available from qualified partners, on-demand.
