Seagate presents the Nytro XF1230 solid-state drives

The US maker of storage solutions Seagate Technology has announced the new Nytro XF1230 line of solid-state drives. The announcement comes days after Seagate announced the Nytro XM1440 SSDs that are designed for businesses and data centers. Unlike the previous Nytro line, however, the Nytro XF1230 has been designed for cloud computing.

The Nytro XF1230 SSDs are quite ordinary – they feature the well-known 2.5-inch form factor and even come with a SATA 3.0 connector. The line currently includes four models with capacities of 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB and 1920 GB. All of them are based on eMLC memory. Speed-wise the SSDs offer different performance – the 240 GB model writes at 290 MB/sec, the 480 GB model writes at 500 MB/sec, the 960 GB at 460 MB/sec and the 1920 GB at 430 MB/sec. The read speed is all the same for all models – 560 MB/sec. The 4K random read IOPS level is also the same for all models – 98 000 IOPS. When writing, however, things change – the 240 GB model offers 8 000 IOPS, the 480 GB model – 15 000 IOPS, the 960 GB model – 16 000 IOPS and the 1920 GB model – 17 000 IOPS.

The Nytro XF1230 SSDs will be on the market next month. No word on pricing as of now.
