Consumer, Enterprise and Big Time Datacenter
Seagate already has two generations of enterprise SSD's under its belt, Pulsar and Pulsar.2. Today the company launches four new products that range from consumer SATA SSD to enterprise PCIe. We have concrete details on three of the four products. The new Enterprise SAS 12Gb/s part was displayed at CeBIT, but we won't have a sample in hand for at least a couple of weeks. We do have SAS 12Gb/s parts from another manufacturer though, so expect full coverage from Seagate, Toshiba and Hitachi in a round-up format before too long.
On the consumer SATA side, Seagate released the new 600 SSD. This is a consumer SSD designed for desktop and notebook use. One step up is the 600 Pro SSD, another SATA product that crosses over into the enthusiast / power user space, if the price is right. Both drives use custom Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) controllers, the same physical silicon used in the Corsair Neutron and Neutron GTX.
On the enterprise side, the new 1200 SSD with a 12Gb/s SAS interface should prove to be the fastest 2.5" SSD on the market, but faces steep competition from upcoming 12Gb/s parts from both Hitachi, now a Western Digital company and Toshiba.
At the top of the scale is the new enterprise PCIe product that comes from Seagate's partnership with Virident Systems. At the time of writing, less than 48 hours to go before the NDA breaks, we don't have a lot of information on three of four of the new products. We're still fishing, even for products we have in hand right now.
Let's break down the data we have.
