Enterprise 12Gbs SAS SSD Overview

12Gb/s SAS Server Support

The 1200 SSD industry-leading 12Gb/s SAS doubles interface speed and improves ROI by leveraging existing SAS servers, accommodating SAS infrastructure scalability, and a proven SCSI command set.

  • 12Gb/s SAS doubles bandwidth (backwards compatible with 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s SAS)
  • Multi-path I/O features help ensure high data availability with failover redundancy and no single point of failure
  • High signal integrity (low noise) makes it safer to use longer cables
  • Scalability—SAS supports more than 65K drive slots (via expanders)
  • Advanced SAS drive-level error correction to help ensure the integrity of data during the storage process

 

Enterprise-SAS-SSD-Solid-State-Drive-Overview

Proven enterprise feature set.

Leveraging decades of enterprise expertise, a proven feature set and manufacturing excellence, the 1200 SSD delivers some of the highest levels of data integrity, data security, device endurance, manageability, testing and support – everything you expect from Seagate.

Enterprise SAS SSD Performance Features

Superior performance and integrated controller intelligence.

The Seagate 1200 SSD reduces storage bottlenecks and the performance gap between processor and data access. The Seagate media management controller uses algorithms that optimize performance for frequently-accessed data and detects sequential data and optimizes where it is stored.

  • Up to 110K / 40K IOPS random read/write performance
  • Up to 750 / 500 MB/s sequential read/write performance
  • Seagate NAND Management technology uses algorithms that optimize performance

Enterprise 12Gbs SAS SSD Features

12Gb/s SAS solid state drives.

The 1200 SSD doubles bandwidth with a 12Gb/s SAS while maintaining backwards compatibility. This helps to improve ROI by leveraging existing SAS infrastructures, a vast SAS ecosystem, and a proven SCSI command set.

This drive accommodates data growth by enabling easy infrastructure scalability. With many drive slots available, multiple storage devices can be added to a single enclosure. High signal integrity (low noise) makes it safer to use longer cables to attach multiple components.

  • 12Gb/s SAS (backwards compatible with 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s SAS)
  • Multi-path I/O features help ensure high data availability with failover redundancy and no single point of failure
  • Easy, plug and play storage
  • Scalability— SAS supports more than 65K drive slots (via expanders) unlike SATA which only supports up to 8 slots, or PCIe which supports up to 16 slots
  • Advanced SAS error-control capability enables more robust drive-level error correction to help ensure the integrity of data during the storage process

Enterprise SAS SSD Solid State Drive Features

Robust Enterprise Feature Set

Backed by Seagate industry-leading customer support, global supply chain expertise, and deep ecosystem relationships, the 1200 SSD typically reduces OEM/system builder qualification effort, helping to save time and money. The 1200 SSD delivers high data integrity, advanced data security and high endurance.

  • Expert media management techniques help to prevent premature wear in heavy write applications, preventing downtime and costs associated with premature failures
  • Power loss data protection and full path data protection
  • Multi-layered error recovery technology with advanced error detection/correction encoding optimized for NAND flash
  • Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) and FIPS SED models with Seagate Instant Secure Erase1 technology

1ISO/IEC 27040 (Information technology—Security techniques—Storage security) and NIST 800-88 (Guidelines for Media Sanitization)

Achieving Higher VDI Scalability and Performance on Microsoft Hyper-V with Seagate® 1200 SAS SSD Drives & Proximal Data AutoCache Software

After the advent of the Hyper-V version 3 hypervisor in Windows Server 2012, a steadily increasing portion of the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) world is being built upon Windows Server and Hyper-V. As always, performance of those VDI sessions is extremely critical, as well as the ability to scale up by loading ever-increasing numbers of VDI sessions onto each host server.
We found that the Seagate 1200 SAS SSDs (Solid State Drives), in conjunction with Proximal Data AutoCache software, provides an extremely cost-effective way to improve performance and scalability of VDI solutions based on Hyper-V.
