Seagate Unveils The Fastest SSD Flash Drive Yet; 10GB/s

Previously the fastest SSD Flash Drive in the market could transfer data at tops speeds of 6 Gigabytes per second (6GB/s). Using cutting edge technology, Seagate has broken that record by making a new SSD Flash Drive capable of data transfer speeds of up to 10GB/s.

For the end users, replacing your mechanical hard drive with an SSD will result to improve speed performance on your computer. However, this latest cutting edge SSD from Seagate with data transfer speeds of up to 10GB/s will suit the need of users with the need for processing massive data in real-time and in as fast as possible. Such as large-scale cloud service providers, statistical trend analysis or weather modeling.

The Seagate SSD drive will work with any system that supports the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocol; Seagate developed that in partnership with other hard-disk vendors to replace the legacy Serial AT Attachment (SATA) technology. The NVMs reduces information bottlenecks associated with SATA by reducing the number of layers of commands creating a faster and simpler language between the flash drives.

Brett Pemble, the General Manager and VP of SSD Products as Seagate said, “Your data is only as good as how easily you can access it and put it to use. Seagate is committed to providing the full spectrum of technologies to help meet the diverse needs of organizations so they can unlock this value. Whether for consumer cloud or business applications, this SSD will help improve on demands for fast access to information, where split seconds drive incremental value gains.”

Gregory Wong, the founder and Principal Analysts at Forward Insights, adds, “Technology advancements continue to stretch the limits of SSD speed and performance due to growing enterprise demands that require fast data processing as scale. Seagate has effectively rewritten the rules of performance with the latest SSD unit. Based on our latest analysis, Seagate is already the leading provider to the emerging PCIe OCP market.”
