Seagate & Phison extend partnership for next-gen NVMe SSD advances to assist in lowering costs for enterprises


Seagate Technology Holdings plc and Phison Electronics Corp. reported today's goals to extend their SSD portfolio of next-gen premium business NVMe SSDs. The new SSDs will help companies minimize total cost ownership (TCO) through advanced storage density, lower power consumption, and increased performance. The two companies also revealed that they had joined a more significant partnership to intensify the evolution cycle and distribution of business-class SSDs.

Seagate and Phison continue their NVMe SSD technology partnership to optimize and lower data center TCOs.

Seagate and Phison have cooperated on Seagate's mainstream SATA SSD developments since 2017. That tight association has persisted through the company's performance line of FireCuda customer gaming NVMe PCIe Gen4x4 SSDs and the world's first purpose-built NAS NVMe SSDs.
