Seagate’s high-tech range drives the enterprise, securely
Since the connected world became a reality for all of us, data has played an important part in our lives. As more of what we do each day becomes reliant on some form of Internet connectivity, data is playing new and important roles in our lives.
So, who are the people allowing this to happen? It is those who manage, store, collate, distribute and use data – all empowered by Seagate products.
What Seagate calls ‘the global datasphere’ will in all likelihood for future generations, be just a fact of life. As television became ‘normal’ in the 70s, portable music standard in the 80s, the 90s saw the rise of the widespread acceptance of the Internet in its many forms (does anyone remember gopher or ftp?), especially the world wide web.
While we still rely on the web for many things, it’s the Internet and data in general that governs our lives. We expect information to be available to us at a second’s notice – in fact, even a slight lag in between request and receipt of some piece of information, however innocuous (a bank balance or a kitten GIF), results in a moment’s impatience (or a roar of disapproval!).
With data growth predicted to reach the requirement of around 160 zettabytes by 2025, we’ll soon find that more and more data is held that, while still including the ubiquitous kitten animations, can be deemed life-critical.
From business information to centralized IoT and embedded systems; from consumer-led to enterprise-driven; from passive machines to artificial intelligence; and from unconnected to mobile, real-time data: our lives would be unrecognizable without somewhere to hold all this information.
For many years, Seagate has led the way in equipping the data center. From early days of mainframe installations via in-house enterprise server farms to today’s enormous public and private cloud provisions, it’s been Seagate’s industry standards and research capability that have empowered us each step of our progress.
Seagate’s current product line continues to be ahead of the pack, making the transformation to a digital future possible. Using the very latest technology, data center/cloud operators, whether in the enterprise or offering a publicly available service, choose Seagate’s drives, knowing that they’re getting the industry’s benchmark.
The Nytro range of SSD devices accelerates (literally) migration to the next generation of data platforms. With its lightning fast response times and read and write speeds, it provides a robust foundation for data, complete with the highest levels of reliability and endurance.
Security is built-in to both the Exos hard drives and the Nytro SSDs; the varying levels of security include hardware encryption and decryption on the fly which emphasize the shortcomings of software alternatives. Even at rest, Seagate’s drives represent a secure environment for even the most business-sensitive data, preventing tampering, blocking unauthorized access, enabling secure disposal, and meeting government grade standards worldwide
As well as the fastest drives, in the Exos X class, Seagate has the largest capabilities in the global datasphere. After years of development stretching back to early networking days in the 1970s, finally, helium-filled drives are an enterprise-ready reality. By using this inert gas in the sealed environment of a Seagate Exos X drive, faster spin speeds are possible due to reduced air friction. This allows speedier read, write and access and greater accuracy, reducing the need for intensive error correction routines.
In the Exos class, Seagate offers a mainstream hard drive (HDD) range: trusted, versatile and efficient, the range offers superior value over its competitors’ products; the epitome of data center reliability.
If you want the best for your data storage plans, whatever the scale and implementation level, you’ll turn to the industry standard for data: Seagate.
