Seagate pushes bar up again with 'world's fastest' enterprise hard drive

Just over a month after commencing shipments for what it touted as its thinnest hard drive yet, Seagate is at it again with the hyperbole.

This time, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is going one bigger by declaring its latest product as the fastest hard drive in the entire world.

Say hello to the Seagate Enterprise Turbo SSHD.

That abbreviation stands for "solid state hybrid drive," which the storage giant also touts as an industry-first, comprised of a hard drive and solid-state flash technology. Together, the hardware is designed to tackle mission critical data.

Supporting up to 600GB of capacity, the SSHD system is supposed to deliver up to three times better random performance over standard 15K-RPM drives and twice the input/output performance than a standard 600GB 10K-RPM hard disk drive.

Seagate's Enterprise Turbo SSHD is shipping worldwide now.

  • Totally Useless Article

    Wow, do they actually pay you to write articles like this? This is all I get on a technology website? How much more useless can you make it? I can get more information than this on an investment site --> http://www.fool.com/investing/businesswire/2013/07/23/seagate-unveils-worlds-fastest-enterprise-hard-dri.aspx

  • More ZDNet content free ad bait

    Less and less relevant over time ... could not agree more with ShortyStuff ... thanks for a link to good info ... too bad ZDNet can't be bothered to provide even the most basic info.

    • Thanks for wasting my time ZD

      And thanks to ShortyStuff for providing a REAL article with some actual info. I personally will be taking a closer look at the hybrid drives, I've seen too many SSDs die without warning to trust them at this point in time, too risky for anything you care about.

  • There are voting buttons for comments...

    ...now we just need voting buttons for the articles.

  • Well...

    at least the comments still work on Chrome for ZDNet - the sister sites CNET and Tech Republic are now a big fail on any browser with Chromium as an engine.

    CBS seems to be painting itself into a big corner of fail, it seems to me.

  • They removed voting buttons for articles a couple years ago

    With this poor standard of journalism, I can see why...
