Seagate refreshes enterprise and cloud portfolio


Storage vendor Seagate has announced new or refreshed products ranging from enterprise hard drives to storage appliances.

Hot on the heels of HGST, Seagate has announced multiple enterprise storage products.

The Nytro XP6302 (pictured above) is a half-height PCIe flash card with up to 1.75TB of usable capacity. The combination of PCIe 3.0 and eMLC flash provides up to 3.5Gb/s of bandwidth, said to be twice that of other cards.

Also new is the Nytro XP6209 card, which provides high performance for read-intensive operations with a low cost of ownership. It has a 1.86TB capacity.

Turning to spinning disks, Seagate announced its new generation of enterprise 2.5in drives. Various models provide different combinations of performance and capacity.

Features include Seagate's TurboBoost caching technology, and self-encryption with instant secure erase.

Seagate also announced a pair of complete storage systems.

ClusterStor 9000 (pictured below) is a scale-out storage product using the Lustre distributed file system. Seagate officials said it delivers 50% higher performance than previous ClusterStor products.

The EVault Enterprise Backup and Recovery Appliance now provides up to 100TB of usable capacity, which means 1PB can be accommodated in a single full-size rack.

The appliance is designed for onsite storage and for replicating data within or between data centres.

In related news, Seagate announced the formation of a cloud systems and solutions group to provide cloud services architectures and solutions.

The group will focus on four areas: integrated high performance computing solutions; scalable, modular components and solutions; custom systems for OEMs; and cloud backup/restore, disaster recovery and rapid archive storage solutions.
