Seagate Technology plc, a world leader in data solutions, today announced the latest in high-performance solutions for multi-user NAS environments, adding to their award-winning IronWolf SSD product line. Seagate's IronWolf 510 is an M.2 NVMe SSD with caching speeds of up to 3 GB/s for NVMe-compatible systems and is ideal for creative pros and business NAS needing 24x7 multi-user storage that is cache enabled.

The IronWolf 510 SSD meets leading top NAS manufacturer requirements of one drive write per day (DWPD), allowing multi-user NAS environments to do more with their data with lasting performance. The IronWolf 510 SSD is reliable with 1.8 million hours mean time between failures (MTBF) in a PCIe form factor, two years of Rescue Data Recovery Services, and a five-year limited warranty. IronWolf Health Management helps analyze drive health and will soon be available on compatible NAS systems.

"We are the first to provide a purpose-built M.2 NVMe for NAS that not only goes beyond SATA performance metrics but also provides 3x the endurance when compared to the competition. This meets the required endurance spec of one DWPD which our NAS partners expect for their customers," said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president, devices. "Because of such high endurance, our customers are getting a tough SSD for small business and creative professional NAS environments."

Meiji Chang, General Manager of QNAP Systems, Inc., commented, "We're thrilled to see new additions to Seagate's solid-state drive line for NAS which caters specifically to SSD requirements in the network storage segment enhancing performance and endurance. This enables QNAP to build more performance-driven and reliable systems and applications, including all-flash arrays, on which our users can rely."

The IronWolf 510 SSD PCIe Gen3 x4, NVMe 1.3 is available in 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB, and 1.92 TB capacities and is compatible with leading NAS vendors to provide server storage for small and medium-sized businesses and creative professionals that use NAS.

Combine IronWolf Hard Drives with IronWolf SSD's and benefit from ultra-high capacity, ultra-high endurance, and high-speed caching.

Available now, Seagate's IronWolf 510 SSD retail for:
  • $119.99 - 240 GB

Way too expensive and pathetic write speeds.

Although most drives of this type are built more for durability & uptime as opposed to the pure speed that typical consumers seek...just sayin :)

I'm sure NAS users dont really worry much about the SSD speeds.

It's a NAS though... How many people run only 10G cards in their network to where the write speeds on the drive would be the bottleneck? 1GB speeds are only ~125 MB/s... it can write that fast, correct?

I have 10Gbps in my NAS, although I'm not caching to an SSD, yet...
10Gbps is slowly becoming more popular, so...

...so........ when it does, I'll buy into these being too slow for most users. By that time, faster dedicated NAS ones will likely be available anyway. ;)

Not worried about this being 'slow' for most users today or the next couple of years, really.

Also, your mobo only sports a 2.5G connection, so you still have a NIC bottleneck anyway. ;)

Uhm, I have a 10Gbps Aquantia NIC in it, as well as in my NAS, so no bottle neck. I can copy well over 500MB/s to my hard drives, until I run out of RAM buffer...
I also have a cheap Netgear 10Gbps switch, but it's the one with only two 10Gbps ports.
You should know better by now than assuming I would have such a bottle neck in my setup.
Don't make assumptions without having all the facts ;)
So yes, for me, this would be slow and I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks they have slow write speeds. The read speeds are acceptable.

I didn't know that... I thought it as 2.5GB integrated. You are in the 0.1% of users. :)

Been running 10Gbps for a couple of years already. Got the cards in a Black Friday sale. Took a while to get it all working properly due to some firmware and driver related issues, but Aquantia's support was stop notch to help me get it all working. I think I was the first Ryzen PC customer they had and there were some issues there.
