Why buy SSDs and adopt flash technology?

Why buy SSDs and adopt flash technology?

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:

  • Grows the storage industry
  • Turbocharges storage and servers by keeping pace with processor performance gains
  • Complements HDD technology

Seagate expertise makes SAS, SATA and SCSI innovation possible

Seagate expertise makes SAS, SATA and SCSI innovation possible.

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.
