[] Seagate Re-Enters Enterprise SATA SSD Market with Nytro XF1230

It's hard for any new SATA SSD to be big news. Aside from instances where new NAND flash enables higher capacities or a big price drop, almost everything we see is an incremental improvement where performance in particular doesn't increase much from one generation to the next. The new Seagate Nytro XF1230 enterprise SATA SSD is notable not for its technical specifications, but for who's selling it. Seagate has been absent from the SATA SSD market for quite a while since the 600 and 600 Pro SSDs were discontinued, but now they're getting back in the game.

The Seagate Nytro XF1230 is intended for use with read-intensive workloads but its use of eMLC NAND flash also gives it decent write performance and endurance. Seagate isn't disclosing who their partners are for the NAND or the SSD controller, but the combination of Micron NAND and Marvell controllers has been working well for Seagate lately in the PCIe space.

Seagate Nytro XF1230 Series Specifications Capacity 240GB 480GB 960GB 1920GB Form Factors 2.5" 7mm Controller unspecified NAND unspecified eMLC Seq Read 560 MB/s Seq Write 290 MB/s 500 MB/s 460 MB/s 430 MB/s 4K Rand Read (QD32) 98K IOPS 4K Rand Write (QD32) 8K IOPS 15K IOPS 16K IOPS 17K IOPS Max Power 2.9W 3.9W 4.7W 4.8W Endurance 0.5 DWPD 0.6 DWPD 0.67 DWPD 0.67 DWPD Warranty Five Years The drive writes per day ratings are about twice the usual for read-oriented SSDs, which broadens its scope of appeal slightly. The steady-state random write performance is not record-breaking but is reasonable for this kind of product. As with virtually all enterprise SSDs, the XF1230 includes full power loss protection, but encryption support is not advertised.

The Seagate Nytro XF1230 is in mass production now and is sampling to Seagate partners.
