HGST starts sales of new UltraStar solid-state drives

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST), a company that now belongs to Western Digital, has released a new family of very fast corporate UltraStar SSDs.

The new family consists of the following models – UltraStar SSD800MH, SSD800MM and SSD1000MR. All models are based on 25 nm MLC NAND flash memory, come in 2.5-inch form factor and support Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface that provides up to 12 Gbit/sec of bandwidth. Built for extreme reliability the new UltraStar solid-state drives come with MTBF of 2 million hours.

Speed-wise the 800 GB SSD800MH model reaches read/write speed of 1200/750 MB/sec while the IOPS of the device reaches 145 000 and 100 000 respectively. The UltraStar SSD800MM also offers 800 GB of storage capacity yet it reaches 1200/700 MB/sec of read/write speed and IOPS of 145 000 and 70 000 respectively. The SSD1000MR model offers 1000 GB of storage, 1200/700 MB/sec of read/write speed and up to 145 000 read and 20 000 sustained write IOPS.

The new SSD line has been designed for use in corporate systems including cloud systems, databases and various platforms so they are unlikely to find their way in regular desktop PCs. Pricing is unknown.
