SSHD: Fast, big and easy on your budget The emergence of solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) technology provides a way for users to get more performance from their machines, run richer applications and make stronger contributions to the organisation – all at a price that works. What is SSHD? The ultimate solution to meeting improved storage performance and capacity needs within the budget constraints of IT organisations is a blend of solid state drive (SSD) and hard disc drive (HDD) technology. Solid state hybrid drives (SSHD) effectively merge these technologies, providing storage devices that are compatible with traditional HDD modules, while delivering one of the most compelling value propositions the storage market has seen in years: SSD-like performance and hard drive capacity. Read more about SSHD technology > SSD HDD = SSHD and innovation SSHDs combine a small, fast and affordable amount of NAND flash memory with a traditional hard drive. SSHD, the best of both worlds:
- Uses SSD for lightning speed
- Integrates HDD high capacity and reliability
- Introduces Adaptive Memory™ technology, the secret sauce
Revolutionary drive performance storage technology The emergence of solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) technology provides a way for users to get more performance from their machines, run richer applications and make stronger contributions to the organisation. SSHDs combine a small, fast and affordable amount of NAND flash memory with a traditional hard drive. Seagate Flash Management NAND flash memory is a proven storage technology that has been used extensively in digital camera memory cards, USB thumb drives and MP3 players. It also became popular for high-performance SSD laptop computer storage to use NAND flash. However, the secret to getting the best of both worlds is to use solid state only for what it does best — deliver lightning speed — and combine it with the complementary strengths of hard disc drives (low cost, high capacity, proven reliability). Enter Adaptive Memory™ technology Self-learning software algorithms make laptop hardware, firmware and high-speed SLC NAND flash work together. The software monitors data usage dynamically and determines what data should be copied to the flash.
- Enables SSD-like performance when accessing the most frequently used files
- Reduces the workload and increases the reliability of the SLC NAND flash
- Reduces costs to the extent that it is now practical to employ enterprise-class SLC NAND flash
HDD, SSD, SSHD: What is in the drive?
- HDD: Large capacity
- SSD: High speed
- SSHD: Capacity, performance and value
High performance + cost savings = SSHD SSHDs have been tested in comparison with both traditional HDDs and SSDs using both laptop boot times and application launches. Both approaches effectively demonstrate the linkage between retrieving data from mass storage and delivering this data to the CPU. Solid state hybrid drives (SSHDs) Momentus XT laptop drives fuse the lightning speed of SSD with the high capacity of a hard drive to unleash your system’s performance. Powered by Adaptive Memory™ technology, SSHD technology enables your system to boot, load and run applications faster. Do more and wait less with an SSHD for your laptop or desktop PC. Deploying SSHDs in the workforce You do not want to limit your employees’ productivity. In order to fully exploit the rapid advances in processor technology, the hard disc drive (HDD) needs to evolve. With solid state hybrid drives (SSHDs), you can fill these performance and capacity gaps cost effectively. Read about how successful companies are using SSHDs in laptop devices. Upgrade: Go Faster. Add Capacity. Perform Better. Why upgrade your laptop HDD to an SSHD? It’s the most affordable way to add both speed and capacity to your computer. Whether you enjoy gaming, HD video, photography or music, digital content is getting better and bigger. You can “have your cake and eat it too”. With SSHD technology you don’t sacrifice massive capacity when you choose faster performance. “Seagate SSHDs will redefine the gaming industry. Games will run much faster with the Seagate SSHD than they will on conventional PCs. In fact, the performance and capacity boosts of Seagate SSHDs will make gaming that much more attractive and will ignite the imagination of gamers and road warriors alike” ref: @seagate.com pr: ไอทีเมามันส์
