Seagate is trying to break records with two of its high-performance SSDs, which have been seen in Flash Memory Summit this week with two new units, the Nytro XP7200 SAS and SSD storage of 60 TB.
The first is a model that we had seen before: SSD PCIe x16 10GB / s, Seagate showed in March of this year, and now known as Nytro XP7200, and production is scheduled for the last quarter of this year.
Based on the union of 4 Nytro XM1440 M.2 SSD mounted on a card full height PCIe expansion under a sink.
Unlike other SSDs with multiple PCIe controller, the XP7200 does not include a PCIe switch. This means that this PCIe SSD can only be used in PCIe x16 slots that will support operations four x4 links.
If you connect the XP7200 in a x8 slot, we would leave two of the four storage units inaccessible. This SSD behaves as four independent because to achieve read speeds announced (10GB / s) requires the use of a software-based RAID-0 or similar system.
Seagate Nytro XP7200
Capacity 3.8 TB or 7.7 TB
3 PCIe x16 interface
Reading secuancial 10,000 MB / s
sequential write 3600 MB / s
940K random read IOPS
160K random write IOPS
Power consumption 26W
Performance specifications XP7200 clearly show the impact of the use of models XM1440 capacity-optimized versions rather than long-term optimization. Although he has read speeds of 10GB / s and nearly one million IOPS random read 4KB packet, write performance is not transcendental. The XP7200 will be available in capacities of 3.8 TB or 7.7 TB.
Seagate 60TB SAS SSD
Capacity 60 TB
Interface Dual Port 12Gb / s SAS
Sequential Read 1,500 MB / s
sequential write 1000 MB / s
150K random read IOPS
IOPS random write N / A
Power consumption 15W
The other model has taken Seagate has no name yet. It is a 60 TB SAS SSD 3D TLC NAND mounted in a 3.5 “drive.
Designed to connect more than one thousand 3D matrices TLC Micron NAND to a single controller SSD, Seagate has introduced Onfi connecting chips to multiplex channels NAND controller through several destinations that otherwise would be impossible to do.
This unit 60 TB has fairly normal characteristics because it is adapted to support heavy workloads of writing and reading, but still takes out the colors to the newest models.
