Seagate brings modular data architecture to A/NZ

11 Jun 2020

Seagate Technology has announced the availability of its Exos and Nytro Systems in Australia and New Zealand. 

Seagate partners with Dicker Data to introduce a modular approach to building and deploying storage systems that solve the specific needs of public and private cloud providers, service providers and traditional data centres.

The global datasphere is projected to grow to 175 zettabytes by the year 20251, and businesses are facing a phenomenal growth in data sources and data volume that needs to be stored and processed. 

In order to tame this complexity and continue to put data to work during this IT 4.0 environment, a multi-tier architecture that connects the Cloud, the Edge, the Internet of Things, and traditional enterprise data centres is required.

The new system designs deliver modular flexibility combining a selection of Exos and Nytro drives in enclosures.

All system components, including the enclosure, the controller, the firmware, and the drives, are developed by Seagate to work together seamlessly and all critical components interchangeable.

“We are excited to introduce our Exos and Nytro systems in A/NZ to serve emerging IT 4.0 markets, as well as Cloud and traditional data centre customers,” says Seagate A/NZ country manager Jeff Park. 

“Our goal is to arm customers and partners with the right technologies to empower their businesses. With modular products that deliver versatility and usability, customers will enjoy drastically simplified user experience while successfully addressing their diverse business needs.”

Dicker Data COO Vlad Mitnovetski adds, “I am pleased to announce the expansion of our partnership with Seagate Technology. Since commencing distribution 3 years ago, we have seen consistent strong growth across their product portfolio. As Seagate Technology expands their range with the new Exos and Nytro Systems, we see a strong new opportunity to introduce the brand to our extensive base of mid-market partners. We are already seeing strong demand for these products being used as complementary solutions to existing storage infrastructure.”

Exos storage systems provide the datasphere’s largest data centre building block. 

By matching Seagate’s high-capacity Exos enterprise hard drives with an enclosure that leverages up to 106 devices, it can provide 1.7PB (petabyte) of business intelligence in 4U of rack space.

It delivers capacity and density without sacrificing data access speed. 

With an overall maximum bandwidth of 36GB/s, users can access business-critical and archival data at speed.

This enclosure is suited for high data retention requirements that are expected to grow. 

Its drive placement maximises airflow and minimises power consumption, and performance, efficiency, and scalability features provide low TCO. 

The system’s new modular, user-focused design minimises system downtime and it features toolless drive carriers that allow an administrator to snap drives into the 106 bays in minutes.

The Nytro all-flash and flash-intensive systems offer modular flexibility combining Nytro flash drives in enclosures that houses up to 24 drives. 

Offering up to 12Gb/s speed and an effective maximum throughput of 14.4GB/s per I/O module or 28.8GB/s in a dual controller configuration, these systems are optimised to support the datasphere’s highest-performance platform for maximum IOPS.

Seagate Nytro systems are suited for high-capacity, transaction-dependent environments that demand tighter Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements and faster response times for optimal data availability.
