Energy Efficient Storage Drive from Seagate
Seagate Technology’s Nytro XF1230 SATA solid state drive is designed to moderate energy demands in cloud datacenters.
The company says that the device can be used in existing data storage installations through its 6 gigabyte per second interface. The XF1230 provides 98,000 random access input/output operations per second and has a maximum power demand is 4.8 watts, which the company claims is lower than comparable devices.
This, Seagate says, is important because cloud datacenters have active workloads that frequently access storage. The XF1230, which will ship to Seagate channel partners next month, will be available in 1.92 terabyte, 480 gigabyte and 240 gigabyte configurations.
The amount of energy used by datacenters is a major area of concern – and research – among vendors, the operators of these facilities and companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook.
