Seagate SSD for servers to arrive later this year

Bright Side of News had a chat with Seagate's David Szabados and heard his company is planning to release solid state disks for enterprises later this year. The reason why Seagate is so late to the party is because the firm wants to ensure that their disks have none of the problems of some current-gen SSDs, like the extremely slow random write performance of the ones with JMicron controllers.
After speaking with David Szabados with Seagate Enterprise it seems that Seagate has chosen to wait and ensure that initial problems with early models, such as the write table fragmentation, have been addressed and viable solutions in place before releasing an SSD offering. Since Seagate will cater to the Enterprise market first they also needed to ensure that there were standards in place for performance, reliability, endurance to ensure that their enterprise customers were getting a reliable product.
