Data center managers must provide faster data storage and access without incurring data corruption or loss. They must also achieve this while juggling tight IT budgets and managing highly complex system environments. Designed for the enterprise, the Pulsar.2 drive is the first MLC-enabled SSD from an enterprise storage company to deliver the price-performance benefits with the data integrity and drive endurance needed for demanding enterprise environments.
MLC-Enabled, Enterprise SSD The Seagate Pulsar.2 SSD is an enterprise-class, MLC-enabled, high-capacity (up to 800GB) solid state drive that delivers the price-performance and reliability benefits needed by Tier 0 performance-hungry enterprise applications. And it does so while ensuring consistently fast performance and low response times.
Enterprise Class Endurance and Data Integrity Performance is important, but endurance and data integrity are critical. The Pulsar.2 SSD can routinely complete ten full drive writes per day, for a total bytes written score (TBW) of 15 petabytes (for an 800GB drive over the life of the device). The Pulsar.2 drive has been designed for the enterprise environment with the intelligence to automatically detect and correct a multitude of data errors that can occur during normal drive operation to deliver the highest levels of enterprise-class data integrity. Additional endurance features include: advanced media-management technology and Protection Information (PI is SAS only), background media scanning, power-loss data protection, wear-leveling algorithms and garbage collection techniques.
Scalability and Reduced System Complexity This SSD uses SATA III interface and provides the same feature set to look, feel and act like an enterprise hard drive—reducing system complexity and operating costs. It also uses standard 2.5-inch form factor that fits into existing HDD slots and is hotpluggable to avoid chassis, ecosystem changes and downtime.
