Intelligent Storage System
Exos X 5U84

Seagate® Exos® X advanced storage array is a petabyte-scale, rack-mounted block storage enclosure with self-healing technology, advanced data protection, and software value delivering superefficient mass-capacity storage for conventional data centers and cloud infrastructure.

Product Highlights

  • Self-healing storage technology, ADAPT, and ADR
  • Deliver unfettered data access with dual redundant controllers capable of achieving superior sequential read and write performance
  • Expand a data center seamlessly with flexible SSD, HDD, and hybrid configuration options
  • Efficiently manage hot and cold data with real-time data tiering
  • Save space and maximize capacity by stacking 4 enclosures for 336 drives of data storage

Key Advantages

Reliable and Self-healing. Exos X features self-healing storage technology, Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT), and Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR). Field-proven design with five nines (99.999%) availability. Seagate ADAPT erasure code data protection software dramatically reduces array rebuild overhead. Unique Seagate ADR reduces human intervention and e-waste by automatically renewing hard drives "in situ" and on the fly.

Built for speed and resilience. Up to two times the performance of the previous generation with redundant active-active controllers powered by the ASIC-based VelosCT controller architecture. Streamline your overhead, with improved throughput, management, and recovery.

Easy to Set Up, Maintain, and Expand. All system components—the enclosure, the controller, the firmware, and the drives—are developed and optimized by our engineers to work together seamlessly. The modular architecture makes components interchangeable between systems, and upgrades are simple due to common FRUs, PCMs, controllers, and software.

Maximum Capacity and Consistent High Performance. Exos X 5U84 supports up to 84 drives in a single 5U enclosure with high availability and superior sequential read and write throughput. Easily expand to accommodate data proliferation by connecting up to four 5U84 enclosures together for a total of 336 drive slots.

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 built-in security measures for reliable and safe file access, transfer, and management.

Reduce power consumption 80 PLUS Titanium and 80 PLUS Platinum power supply options with certified adaptive cooling technology.
