Seagate has announced enhanced versions of two flash technologies; the Nytro 5000 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSD and the Nytro 3000 Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD. The Nytro 5000 NVMe M.2 SSD and Nytro 3000 SAS SSD offer 2TB of capacity and random write performance levels as high as 67,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) — double the performance levels of the previous version.
The SSDs also come with configurable overprovisioning so organisations can adjust the drive’s endurance and capacity properties based on their specific data storage needs.
The Nytro 3000 SAS SSD has a dual-port SAS interface and up to 15TB of capacity, more than four times the capacity of the previous version. It also offers up to 2,200 megabytes per second (MB/s) in sequential read performance through a 12 gigabits per second (Gb/S) SAS dual or wide port interface. There are multiple configuration options.
The Nytro 5000 NVMe M.2 SSD and Nytro 3000 SAS SSD will be available later this year using leading 3D NAND flash technology.
