Seagate first with NAS optimized SSD - Ironwolf NAS

Seagate marries Ironwolf reliability with flash memory to build a NAS optimized SSD
By: Chris Ramseyer | Storage News | Posted: 1 week, 4 days ago

At CES 2019, Seagate announced the world's first SMB/SME SSD designed solely for use in a NAS. The new Ironwolf 110 features many of the features of the company's Ironwolf HDD product line, like advanced health monitoring, just with solid state media rather than rotating disks.

We've urged companies for years to build a NAS-optimized SSD with high endurance and increased monitoring features but Seagate is the first out of the gate with all of the right pieces together. The material released this week show the new drives feature Durawrite technology, a carryover from the SandForce/LSI IP acquisition.

 

Seagate tells us the new Ironwolf SSD fills two roles for system administrators. The drives can operate in a system as a high-speed cache or run as the primary storage media in an all-flash array.

The capacities range from 256GB (240GB with overprovisioning) to 4TB (3.84TB) with an average power consumption of just 8 watts. Seagate lists random write performance in steady-state with around 20,000 IOPS. Sequential performance reaches 560 MB/s reads and 535 MB/s writes.
