Those products made their global debut at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California, in August.

As the latest addition to the Seagate Nytro SSD product line, the 2TB Nytro XM1440 M.2 NVMe SSD is designed to accelerate enterprise data access, with twice the density of prior M.2 NVMe environments, and can reach performance levels as high as 30,000 IOPS per watt, enabling high levels of computing in the smallest power envelope and helping datacenters save precious space while increasing capacity density.

The 60TB SAS SSD features twice the density and four times the capacity of the next highest-capacity SSD available today, with a single controller architecture to deliver the lowest cost-per-gigabyte for flash available today. The 8TB Nytro XP7200 NVMe SSD features a single PCIe interface for high-speed data transfers and four separate controllers, accommodating the hyper-scale needs of today’s data centers seeking to easily grow with their data without losing the ability to quickly access and process it.
