Storage up to 3TB is offered in Seagate Technology's product refresh with new Pulsar solid-state drives and the latest Savvio and Constellation hard disk drives. The drives have high reliability ratings and are aimed at meeting growing enterprise storage needs. Other Seagate features include minimal footprints and faster RAID rebuild times.

Seagate Technology launched the largest enterprise product refresh in the company's history Tuesday with its new Pulsar family of solid-state drives (SSDs) offering capacities of up to 800GB, and the latest Savvio and Constellation hard disk drives (HDDs) sporting capacities ranging between 154GB and 3TB. The goal is to help IT managers cope with storage needs driven not only by the growth of content and usage within an enterprise, but also by new consumer devices and apps that either directly or indirectly consume enterprise storage, Seagate said.

The company's Pulsar SSD platform has been tested to withstand more than 10 full drive writes per day, or 15 petabytes written over the course of the drive's lifetime. And Seagate's new Savvio 10K.5 and Savvio 15K.3 HDDs are designed to deliver an ultrahigh reliability rating of just 0.44 percent average failure rate per two million hours.

"Seagate's new family of enterprise storage solutions meets the diverse storage needs of these high-growth application environments -- whether it's fast transactional database servers, bulk storage and archiving, or everything in between," said Seagate Executive Vice President Kurt Richarz.

Pulsar SSDs

Sporting multilevel cell NAND memory elements capable of storing more than a single bit of information, Seagate's Pulsar.2 automatically detects and corrects a multitude of data errors than can occur during normal drive operations, the company said. The new device, which can store up to 800GB of data, also offers support for both native 6Gb/s SAS and SATA interfaces.

The Pulsar XT.2 -- the fastest drive in Seagate's new portfolio -- is designed to meet enterprise requirements for real world, complex, mixed workloads. Capable of storing up to 400GB of data, the new hot-pluggable device with 6Gb/s SAS interface attains sustainable random reads at 48K and writes at 22K IOPS as well as performing sequential reads at 360MB/sec and writes at 300MB/sec, Seagate said.

To help enterprises comply with data-security mandates, the Pulsar XT.2 offers a self-encrypting drive (SED) option. Moreover, advanced media-management technology is also on tap to help protect enterprises against unexpected data changes or losses.

Savvio and Constellation HDDs

Available in a 2.5-inch small form factor with 6GB SAS interface and a maximum capacity of 300GB, the Savvio 15K.3 is designed for tier 1, mission-critical server and storage system applications. According to Seagate, the HDD is well suited for a wide range of applications.

protection of data at rest.

With up to 3TB of capacity and either a 6Gb/s SAS or SATA interface, the new Constellation ES.2 HDD aims to fulfill the efficiencies demanded by capacity-intensive 24/7 enterprise applications. Capable of powering both server and bulk storage solutions, the new machine promises to help data-center managers maximize their storage footprints.

"Not only will you be able to stash 114TB of data in one single square foot of floor space, you'll save tons of time, effort and money by cutting those pesky RAID rebuild times down by 80 percent," noted Seagate Senior Product Marketing Manager Barbara Craig in a blog.

Seagate's performance-optimized Pulsar SSDs are slated for general availability beginning in the second quarter. The Savvio 10K.5 will begin shipping later this month, with the Savvio 15K.3 and Constellation ES.2 to follow in the second quarter.
