Key Advantages

Reduce Data Center Footprint
Build a space-saving private cloud with this all-in-one high-density, high-capacity building block. With this high-performance solution, you’ll never sacrifice fast input/output data speeds. Future-proofed, this Exos supports a variety of deployments. Modular, interchangeable components mean easy upgrades and fast innovations.

Deliver a Versatile Architecture Built to Grow
Minimize your TCO and store up to 1.344PB1 of data with an enclosure that leads the industry in both density and cost-forperformance while enabling easy change in functionality by swapping to EBOD expansion controllers or hardware-based RAID controllers. This flexible enclosure includes support and capabilities to manage cables, universal ports, self-configuration controls, and standardized zoning.

Ensure Applications Have Access to Critical Data or Create Powerful Multi-Node Configurations
Dual controller redundancy, inter-controller communication and multi-controller drive access safeguards your data with powerful redundancy. Additionally, split the chassis into two nodes to yield powerful multi-node architecture in a single chassis.

Reduce Touch Points Between Storage Modules and Storage Server
This enclosure is suited for both high-capacity and transaction-dependent environments that demand tighter Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements and need faster response times for optimal data availability. Recognize cost savings through high performance while reducing power consumption with 80 PLUS Platinum certified adaptive cooling technology.

Build In Security at the Foundation of the Data Life Cycle
Protect your most valuable business assets with Seagate Secure™ SSDs and hard drives.

1 When using Seagate 16TB drives

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.
