Seagate to highlight recent storage innovations
Disk vendor will showcase breakthroughs in SSD, SSHD, NAS
Seagate will showcase its broad range of external and internal storage solutions at this year’s GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK. The company will highlight its latest innovations in the areas of SSD, SSHD, NAS, enterprise and cloud technologies.
“Seagate is a world leader in hard disk drives and storage solutions,” says Diane El Hachem, Channel Marketing Manager, EMEA, Seagate.
“Our innovative products have been helping people across the Middle East and around the globe to store, share and protect their valuable digital content for more than three decades.”
At GITEX, Seagate will demonstrate the Enterprise Turbo SSHD, the world’s fastest hard drive, according to the company; along with a new network-attached storage (NAS) HDD lineup; and two new enterprise HDDs.
For the consumer market, Seagate will offer Wireless Plus and Seagate Central wireless storage devices, as well as the newly released Seagate Slim drives. The company will also have NAS solutions for SMEs.
The company’s current offerings include technologies such as automatic backup, Wi-Fi streaming, mobile app control and integration with other media services. “Seagate hard drives are known to deliver unsurpassed capacity, speed and reliability,” says El Hachem.
“As well as offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of hard disk drives, solid-state drives and solid-state hybrid drives, Seagate offers an extensive line of retail storage products for consumers and small businesses, along with data-recovery services for any brand of hard drive and digital media type.”
El Hachem expects the development of cloud infrastructures and the shift towards flash storage to provide considerable growth opportunities for Seagate. “The global storage market is both growing and changing rapidly, and we see those shifts very prevalent in the EMEA region today,” she says.
“In particular, we want to take full advantage of the huge potential we see in areas such as cloud computing and solid state drives. The growing regional appetite for storage to support cloud-based solutions is also expected to be a key driver for Seagate in 2013, as well as new investments in technology segments such as desktop and SSHDs.”
