Seagate Technology plc announced a high-capacity drive – a two-terabyte (TB) version of its Nytro XM1440 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) Solid State Drive (SSD).
As the latest addition to the Seagate Nytro SSD product line, the 2TB Nytro XM1440 M.2 NVMe SSD is designed to accelerate enterprise data access, with twice the density of prior M.2 NVMe environments. The drive is optimized for read-intensive and mixed workloads, the vendor said.
“Data and time are money, and nowhere is this more apparent than in today’s enterprises, which are grappling with how to accommodate ever-increasing amounts of data without losing the ability to quickly access and process it to continue deriving value,” said Brett Pemble, Seagate’s general manager and vice president of SSD products. “This latest version of the Nytro XM1440 M.2 NVMe SSD pushes the boundaries for enterprises, so they don’t have to sacrifice speed for access and availability. They can continue to scale operations in an efficient manner and still get the most value from their data, but without the extra overhead.”
With a relatively low active power consumption of seven watts, the 2TB Nytro drive can reach performance levels as high as 30,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) per watt, according to Seagate.
The 2TB Nytro includes end-to-end data protection, including low-density parity-check error correction and RAISE technology, which delivers RAID-like data protection and recovery from potentially catastrophic flash memory failures. The drive also comes with a power loss data protection circuit to help prevent data loss in the event of a power interruption.
The 2TB Nytro XM1440 M.2 NVMe SSD will be available through channel partners in November 2016. For datacenters not yet prepared to utilize the new M.2 interface, this same solution is also available as the new Nytro XP7102 PCIe NVMe Add-in Card, available through channel partners now.
