Seagate unveils new Nytro flash products to meet storage needs

Seagate Technology has extended its flash-based solutions portfolio with the launch of Nytro XF 1440 2.5”, Nytro XM 1440 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) Solid State Drives (SSDs) and the Nytro XP6500 Flash Accelerator Card.

The flash based solutions are designed to work in conjunction with Seagate storage products to meet data storage need.

The company said new products feature the highest level of reliability and endurance for enterprise and cloud end users as well as cloud original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and system partners.

Additionally, drives and the accelerator card are best suited for enterprise applications such as online transaction processing (OLTP), high frequency trading, high-performance computing (HPC), data warehousing, data mining and data analytics as well as workloads with mixed IO sizes.

Company officials said Nytro XF 1440 and XM1440 are power efficient, high performance NVMe SSDs available in ultra small 2.5” and M.2 form factors while Nytro XP6500 is a PCIe flash accelerator card which delivers the lowest write latency within the Nytro product portfolio.

Also, Nytro XF 1440 and XM 1440 increases storage density and reduce the storage footprint and power use in data centers.


The Seagate Nytro XP6500 Flash Accelerator Card is available while Nytro XF 1440 SSD will be available at the end of October and the XM 1440 SSD will be available next year.

“The XP6500 flash accelerator card provides ultra-low latency capability for applications that require fast logging and produce significantly higher transactions per second,–something today’s applications demand,” said Brett Pemble, vice president of flash products, Seagate cloud systems and electronics solutions.

Last month, Seagate Technology launched Hybrid Cloud Protection solution to help customers manage explosive data growth and complex security needs easily and cost effectively.

In March, QingCloud, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider in China, selected its Nytro flash cards to improve its cloud service.
