If your business handles a large amount of information and relies heavily on availability, security, and reliability, cloud backup systems may not be enough. With this in mind, Seagate just launched the IronWolf 510, a NAS SSD PCIe solution, with capacities up to 2TB.
When it comes to backing up critical business information, NAS has long been the solution, making tape backups obsolete.
A NAS (Network Attached Storage) is an array of hard drives configured according to the needs of the client, which consists of the simplest, which would be the backup on a single disk, to more complex solutions , as a mirror backup or redundant in two different units.
The world's first PCIe solid state drive (SSD) was designed by Seagate for the NAS. Intended for small and medium-sized businesses using this technology, the drive offers the ability to access, share, and back up files from almost anywhere, with high speed and endurance.
IronWolf 510 is an NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) drive with caching speeds of up to 3GB per second.
While there are larger capacity NAS systems with hard drives up to 16TB, they are mechanical hard drives, which by their nature tend to fail in less time than SSDs. The IronWolf 510 SSD is reliable, with 1.8 million hours of Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) in a PCIe format, two years of Rescue data recovery services, and a five-year limited warranty.
It also has proprietary software, IronWolf Health Management, that will help you analyze the status of the units and take the necessary precautions to change it before it fails, this through a friendly visual interface that will soon be launched.
The IronWolf 510 is an M.2 NVMe SSD, which means that in the near future we will see similar ones dramatically reduced in size, especially when compared to 3.5 HDD disk NAS and even 2.5 SSD, which is currently most of the installed base.
The product is available in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1.92TB capacities and is compatible with leading NAS vendors to provide server storage for small and medium businesses and creative professionals.
