All-in-one, expandable, low-cost storage solution supports growing businesses with high-capacity and high-availability options.

More Information

Best-Fit Applications

  • Small and mid-sized deployments
  • Scalable capacity
  • Immediate data access

Key Advantages

Save space and maximize capacity with up to 12 drives that can hold 216TB per chassis in a 2U rackmount enclosure (when using 18TB drives).

Dual ×86 controllers with flexible performance options that fit your software requirements and budget, including high availability.

Future-proofed to support network infrastructures with 10GbE, 25GbE, and 100GbE I/O options.

Expandable with up to 8 total EBOD chassis to grow with your business.

Dual 12Gb/s SAS controllers are compliant with latest architecture standards for maximum data throughput.

Ensure data is constantly available with hot-swappable controllers, PSUs, system fan modules, drives, and expander cards.

Modular solution is easily serviceable and allows for interchangeability with other Exos products.

NOTE: When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one trillion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions, and thus will not be available for data storage. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface and disk capacity.
