Seagate ships first drive PCIe SSDS in the world

If your business handles a large amount of information and depends largely on the availability, safety and reliability, perhaps the backup systems in the cloud are not sufficient. Thinking of this, Seagate has just launched the IronWolf 510, a NAS solution PCIe SSDS, with capacities up to 2 TB.

In questions of support of critical information business, the NAS have long been the solution, making backups on tape were obsolete.

A NAS (network-attached storage, for its acronym in English) is an arrangement of hard disks configured according to the needs of the client, which consists from the most simple, that would be the backup on a single disc, up to more complex solutions, such as back-mirror or redundant in two different units.

The first solid state drive (SSD) PCIe of the world was designed by Seagate for NAS. Designed for small and medium-sized companies that use this technology, the unit offers the ability to access, share and back up files from almost anywhere, with high speed and resistance.

IronWolf 510 is a unit NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express, for its acronym in English) with a speed of caching up to 3 GB per second.

While there are NAS systems with capacities larger hard drives of up to 16 TB, are mechanical hard drives, which by their nature tend to introduce faults in less time than the SSD. The IronWolf 510 SSD is reliable, with 1.8 million hours of mean time between failures (MTBF) in a format PCIe, two years of data recovery services Rescue and a limited warranty of five years.

It also has a proprietary software, the IronWolf Health Management, that will help you to analyze the status of the drives and take the necessary precautions to change it before it fails, this by using a visual interface friendly that will soon be launched.

The IronWolf 510 is a SSD drive M. 2 NVMe, which means that in the near future we will see similar dramatically reduced in size, particularly if compared to the NAS HDD 3.5, and even with SSD of 2.5, which is currently the largest part of the installed base.

The product is available in capacities of 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB and 1.92 TB and is compatible with all major NAS vendors to provide storage server to small-and medium-sized enterprises, and creative professionals.
