Seagate to launch fastest SSD ever made

Seagate has unveiled a production-ready unit of the fastest SSD to date, with throughput performance of 10GBps.

The unit meets Open Compute Project specifications, making it suitable for hyperscale data centers.

The SSD, which is expected to be released in 2016, is more than 4GBps faster than its closest rival, and will work with any system that supports the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocol.

NVMe was developed by Seagate and other vendors to replace the SATA standard.

NVMe helps reduce layers of commands to create a faster, simpler language between flash devices.

The 10GBps SSD technology accommodates 16-lane PCIe slots, and Seagate is also finalizing a second unit with 8-lane PCIe slots – which gives throughput speeds of 6.7GBps.
