Revolutionary drive performance storage technology

The emergence of solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) technology provides a way for users to get more performance from their machines, run richer applications, and make stronger contributions to the organization. SSHDs combine a small, fast and affordable amount of NAND flash memory with a traditional hard drive.

Seagate Flash Management

NAND flash memory is a proven storage technology that’s been extensively used in digital camera memory cards, USB thumb drives and MP3 players. It also became popular for high-performance SSD laptop computer storage to use NAND flash.

But, the secret to getting the best of both worlds is to use solid state only for what it does best–deliver blazing speed– and partner it with the complementary strengths of hard disk drives (low cost, high capacity, proven reliability).

Enter Adaptive Memory™ technology

Self-learning software algorithms make laptop hardware, firmware and high-speed SLC NAND flash work together. The software dynamically monitors data usage and determines what data should be copied to the flash.

  • Enables SSD-like performance when accessing the most frequently-used files
  • Reduces the workload and increases the reliability of the SLC NAND flash
  • Reduces costs so it’s now practical to employ enterprise-class SLC NAND flash
