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.
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.
