Seagate introduced the Seagate Pulsar drive, the first product in its new enterprise SSD family.
Designed for enterprise blade and general server applications, the Pulsar uses SLC (single-level cell) technology, delivers up to 200GB capacity, and is built in a 2.5-inch form factor with a SATA interface. It leverages non-volatile flash memory rather than spinning magnetic media to store data.
According to Seagate, its new SSD achieves a peak performance of up to 30,000 read IOPS and 25,000 write IOPS, 240MB/s sequential read and 200 MB/s sequential write.
Intel is to implement the projected doubling of its SSD capacities earlier than expected – possibly as soon as next month.
The current X18-M and X25-M solid-state drives (SSDs) use a 50nm process and have 80GB and 160GB capacities with 2-bit multi-level cell (MLC) technology.
