Seagate is well know for making hard drives, up until now they haven’t released any solid state drives, that is about to change with the launch of Seagate’s first solid state drive, the Pulsar SSD.
The Seagate Pulsar SSD is a 2.5 inch SATA drive, and it is considerably thin, measuring just 0.7mm, and they will come with a five year warranty, and will be available in a range of sizes up to 200GB.
“Seagate is optimistic about the enterprise SSD opportunity and views the product category as enabling expansion of the overall storage market for both SSDs and HDDs (hard disk drives),” Dave Mosley, Seagate’s executive vice president for sales, marketing and product line management, said in the statement. “Our strategy is to provide our customers with the exact storage device they need for any application, regardless of the component technology used.”
Seagate are also releasing the first ever rotating hard drive, which will also be just 7mm thick, which is quite a bit thinner than the standard 9.5mm hard drives available today.
Seagate will be showing off both their new Pulsar SSD and their ultra thin HDD at CES in January, there are no details on pricing as yet.
