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.

  • newegg MLC-Enabled, Enterprise SSD The Seagate Pulsar.2 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg Scalability and Reduced System Complexity This SSD uses the industry-standard SAS interface to improve scalability and reliability. It 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 to avoid chassis, ecosystem changes and downtime.
  • newegg Secure Encryption The self-encrypting feature protects against unintended data change or loss to ensure accurate data retention and integrity, and protects data upon drive retirement, repurposing or loss.

5 out of 5 eggsdurable, fast, reliable

Pros: Best of MLC class, great architecture, and takes abuse well

Cons: Not SLC (See "Other Thoughts.")

Other Thoughts: I work at a satellite campus for JHU. As the assistant manager of the IT department for this university, I know my stuff. Despite not having the ever-reliable SLC ram we all clamor for, this drive (and its other brothers and sisters that make up our server array), take a beating from hundreds of students all day long. Since upgrading from SCSI hdds (15,000 RPMs), students from classes all over the campus have told us that they're impressed. And for a student to say they're impressed by the speed of something... that's tremendous. After all, the average 19 year old know-it-all is typically difficult to please.
If you want a drive that can handle size needs, reliability needs, and speed needs, then look no further than this drive.

HOWEVER. If you're looking for "a reliable SSD for the laptop," do NOT even consider this drive. Besides the fact that it costs about half of a typical entry-level sedan (Jetta, Fit, etc), this drive will take serious abuse and last years. This is strictly for enterprise computers, servers, federal agency laptops. Anyone else should be looking at a (brand name) 840PRO 512GB (if you need that much), or a (brand name) CherryVille. Because those drives will last a while (at least 7 years, longer than whatever computer it's in). And in the end, that's all you'll need.

Apparently, the Eggheads of this site don't allow me to mention brand names. Hmm.
