Because SSDs provide significant value to both businesses and consumers alike.
In many applications and use cases, SSDs offer significantly more performance with lower energy and space costs for businesses. For consumers, SSDs offer significantly faster boot speeds and load times, as well as a more rugged device when needed. Also, flash technology:
Seagate has been a major force in the development and industry adoption of SAS, SATA and SCSI storage interface protocols, command sets and the drives that implement them. For example, we led the industry to develop the new 12Gb/s SAS standard, which enables you to double your SAS bandwidth while leveraging existing SAS infrastructures and investments to optimise ROI.
Our leadership positions in key interface organisations such as the T10 and T13 Technical Committees and the SCSI Trade Association help to ensure continued open standards and communications protocols across the storage industry.
Seagate knows how to qualify drives. We conduct extensive product quality, interoperability and failure condition testing. This means literally tens of thousands of testing hours, on tens of thousands of test units, to ensure quality products. In fact, we have more than 4,800 square metres of global testing facilities, with more than 25,000 drives being tested on any given day. Seagate saves you time and money by:
From endurance and performance to security, Seagate has been actively driving industry efforts to enhance open standards for enterprise and client SSDs. Seagate actively works with JEDEC, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), the Storage Performance Council (SPC), the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other standards and testing organisations.
Typical Seagate standards activities include:
