Seagate’s Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) technology is taking a step forward, into the enterprise space. The company announced that it has created the “world’s fastest” enterprise hard drive with the Seagate Enterprise Turbo SSHD.

Seagate’s SSHD technology has been available in notebooks and desktops for some time now, and it ostensibly offers near-SSD performance at near-HDD prices by incorporating some solid state technology with traditional spinning disk design. The ‘tweener option is an interesting one, and it makes sense in the enterprise space. Seagate bills the drive as ideal for servers that operate mission-critical operations such as big data and transaction processing.

The Enterprise Turbo SSHD purports to offer 3x the performance of standard 15K RPM drives and features 600GB of capacity, 32GB of NAND, and fine-tuned storage tiering with Adaptive Memory technology. The 2.5-inch drive comes with a 5-year warranty.

Pretty cool, but SSDs are coming down in price quite rapidly. I think this would only tide you over temporarily.

Eh they won't be on a level of a hybrid for a long while I think comparing storage. Pure SSDs will be faster but for the cost per GB I doubt SSDs will ever be in competition until the next big thing happens in storage that makes SSDs take the place of spindle drives.

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
