The continual and massive growth of data is increasing the demands of modern data centers for robust storage solutions. Data center managers look for modular solutions that easily scale and replicate high performance ensuring richness of service to customers, while dramatically reducing TCO and the cost of IT transactions. The Seagate® Nytro XP6500 flash accelerator card is an industry leading, versatile application acceleration solution with onboard NAND flash modules (XFF). It is optimized for write-latency sensitive applications, such as data warehousing, data mining, data analytics, online transaction processing, high performance computing, software-defined storage and big data.

Maximum Performance for Write-Latency Sensitive Applications
The Nytro XP6500 card pairs an innovative hardware design with intelligent I/O software to deliver one of the industry’s lowest and most consistent latency performance solutions that improves response time in applications requiring high IOPS and bandwidth. Featuring an 8-lane PCIe 3.0 host interface and ROC-based controller with a DRAM buffer, it delivers consistently high performance with the least impact on the host CPU for a broad range of workloads.

One of the top IT concerns is meeting SLAs for performance. By boosting application responsiveness with the Nytro XP6500 flash accelerator card, enterprises are able to offer their customers the improved level of service, tighter performance driven SLAs and enhanced user experience.

Lower TCO With Simplified Management and Reduce Resources
The Nytro XP6500 card requires minimal administrator intervention with feature sets and capabilities tuned for ease of use and efficiencies to reduce hardware, power and IT resources. It not only reduces the deployment cost by enabling more processing power out of existing servers, but it also delivers significant cost savings through improved efficiency by enhancing performance without a complete IT overhaul. The user configurable over-provisioning enables defining and optimizing capacity, endurance and performance. With the Seagate Enterprise Storage Manager—a web-based management tool—users can easily configure, monitor and maintain the Nytro XP6500 cards from a single interface.

Flexible, Reliable and Scalable Solution
The Nytro XP6500 card is a turnkey solution that offers an integrated deployment model with onboard flash modules (XFF) for optimal storage density, field-hardened reliability, endurance and data protection for critical business applications. The Nytro XP6500 card features the highest level of protection against data loss from an unexpected power failure by using supercapacitors for the onboard DRAM cache with an instant recovery lasting less than 50 seconds. Thanks to integrated supercapacitors, the XP6500 card also eliminates the need for battery maintenance in case of power failures. The Nytro XP6500 card easily scales performance and capacity by adding more cards, and also comes in low- and high-profile configuration options, making it a flexible solution for integrations in a broad range of server types.
