Seagate Technology has teamed up with Newisys to create "the industry's fastest flash storage design," as published in a recent press release. This advancement in technology allows for a new Newisys NSS-2601 storage server to achieve block I/O performance of 1TB/s.
This number is achieved by pairing the NSS-2601 with dual NSS-HWxEA Storage Server Modules containing Seagate SAS 1200.2 SSDs within, ensuring these blisteringly fast speeds are achieved by a single 42U rack. In addition, the press release notes that Newisys 2U servers packed with 60 Seagate SSDs is able to post an impressive bandwith of 49GB/s.
