PulsarIt’s official!  Seagate’s new SSD is called Pulsar, and is shipping to enterprise OEMs.  Pulsar is targeted at the enterprise blade server and general server market. 

Pulsar is the first truly enterprise-ready SSD from the world’s leader in enterprise storage devices.

The specs you might expect:

These make a lot of sense given the needs of today’s enterprise server market – 3Gb/s SATA, 2.5″, etc.  The 7mm height provides some great density opportunites for blade server manufacturers in particular. 

It is the first of many SSD strorage devices from Seagate.

The specs that make Pulsar uniquely enterprise-ready:

SSD is not just flash media.  Extensive pre- and post-sales support is needed for true enterprise drives. Pulsar’s enterprise-ready capabilities come from Seagate storage device IP applied to solid state media and validated with extensive testing that enterprise customers require. 

For example, Power Loss Protection – achieved by the integration of a super-capacitor in Pulsar’s data architecture – protects enerprise data, enabling customers to use Pulsar with the write cache enabled. 

“Where’s Seagate?”

Some in the industry have been asking “Where’s Seagate?” as other companies have launched SSD products into the enterprise market over the past year or so. 

The answer is “In the lab and meeting with customers, building a true enterprise SSD.”
