Seagate’s recently launched 2TB version of its Nytro® XM1440 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid-state drive is a first-of-its kind product that optimizes power and performance in a compact, low-power form factor designed to increase storage density in data centers.
Packed with twice the capacity compared to similar competitive offerings among the enterprise-class M.2 NVMe SSDs available in the market today, it’s ideal for data centers dealing with exponential data growth.
The drive can serve the needs of a range of enterprise applications such as online transaction processing, high-performance computing and big data analytics. It also helps manage storage growth with deduplication and compression, allowing data centers to easily create more virtual machines without having to add additional servers to manage storage growth.
The latest addition to Seagate’s Nytro SSD product line, the XM1440 is designed for demanding enterprise applications that require fast data access, capacity and processing, with twice the density of prior M.2 NVMe environments. Optimized for read-intensive and mixed workloads, its high capacity and small form factor are ideal for cloud and enterprise data center environments, where speed and processing power in a small footprint are increasingly important.
“Data and time are money, and nowhere is this more apparent than in today’s enterprises, which are grappling with how to accommodate ever-increasing amounts of data without losing the ability to quickly access and process it to continue deriving value,” said Brett Pemble, Seagate’s GM and VP of SSD products. “This latest version of the Nytro XM1440 M.2 NVMe SSD is the first of its kind and pushes the boundaries for enterprises, so they don’t have to sacrifice speed for access and availability. They can continue to scale operations in an efficient manner and still get the most value from their data, but without the extra overhead.”
The SSD’s low power footprint means its active power consumption of seven watts is nearly half the power consumption of similar performing drives available today. Yet it can reach performance levels as high as 30,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) per watt, enabling high levels of computing in the smallest power envelope. And, the drive’s flexible form factor means enterprises can easily bring PCIe NVMe performance to their data centers without having to overhaul their entire infrastructure.
