Key Advantages

Maximize Capacity and Consistent High Performance
Leverage both speed and performance at a budget-friendly price. This system enables even the smallest business to get data to applications fast, with maximum throughput of up to 3.5GB/s. Additionally, businesses can expand the system as data requirements grow, with up to 168TB of storage capacity (Using Exos 14TB drives) in only a 2U rack mount.

Deliver Versatile Architecture Built to Scale
Use this flexible solution for costconscious businesses that require high read and write throughput as well as more storage. Application access to data is virtually instantaneous, and purpose-built modularity makes it easy to set up, maintain, and expand via interchangeable FRUs and hot-swappable components.

Ensure Applications Have Access to Critical Data
Take advantage of features that enable extreme cost efficiency while also providing up to 99.999% data availability. Parallel architecture, data replication, and fast streaming make access to data unfettered. In addition, exclusive Seagate ADAPT data protection technology supports fast and efficient drive rebuilds that virtually eliminate system downtime.

Reduce Cost and Resources
Meet stringent worldwide requirements for recycling and environmental friendliness with a nimble system that flexes as use cases evolve and capacity needs increase. It is perfectly suited for the SMB market due to high capacity and efficient management capabilities, and can help you minimize environmental impact and recognize cost savings through high performance.

Build In Security at the Foundation of the Data Life Cycle
Protect the most valuable business assets with Seagate Secure™ cybersecurity features and intelligent firmware —such as SFTP, SED support, and administrator access controls—that provide builtin security measures for reliable and safe file access, transfer, and management.

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.
