Seagate has unveiled the world’s fastest NVMe SSD that has a data transfer rate of 10 gigabytes per second (GBps). The drive meets Open Compute Project (OCP) specifications and the company says that this makes it ideal for hyperscale data centers. The company also claims that this unit is 4GBps faster than the previous record holder. In a statement, Brett Pemble, Seagate’s General Manager and Vice President of SSD Products said, “Seagate is committed to providing the full spectrum of technologies to help meet the diverse needs of organizations so they can unlock this value. Whether for consumer cloud or business applications, this SSD will help improve on demands for fast access to information, where split seconds drive incremental value gains.”

The technology would work with any system that supports the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocol that was developed by Seagate and other consortium vendors. The company says that organizations that process data for object storage or in real-time would benefit most from this solution. This includes large-scale cloud providers and web applications, weather modeling, or statistical trends analysis.
