More Information

Product Highlights

  • Scale your data center with this very high density storage platform
  • Minimize a data center’s footprint and power consumption while maximizing storage space
  • Eliminate efficiency-draining acoustic interference with the proprietary noise attenuator
  • Maintain your data center easily with toolless drive carriers that save hours of time
  • Ensure data is constantly available with hot-swappable controllers, PSUs, system fan modules, drives, and expander cards

Key Advantages

Build Exabyte-Scale Data Centers Fast
Increase the amount of data that fits in a 4U rack by leveraging up to 106 of Seagate's high-capacity hard drives in a single enclosure that holds up to an unprecedented 1.7PB (When using Exos 16TB drives) of business intelligence. With an overall maximum bandwidth of 36GB/s, you can access mission-critical and archival data with lightning speed.

Deliver Versatile Architecture Built to Grow
This flexible enclosure includes support and capabilities to manage cables, universal ports, self-configuration controls, and standardized zoning. As the largest building block of Seagate's modular systems— which make all critical components interchangeable regardless of size or budget— this platform sets the new standard for data center solutions with extremely high density and capacity, all with unparalleled reliability and performance.

Easy to Set Up, Maintain, and Expand
This system’s user-focused design reduces support calls and minimizes system downtime. Its modularity makes it first-in-class for reliability, easy setup, maintenance, and expansion via hot-swappable expanders and dual data paths, as well as redundant I/O modules, fans, and power supplies. Additionally, this system features toolless drive carriers that allow an administrator to snap drives into the 106 bays in seconds.

Reduce Cost and Resources With Energy-Efficient Features
This enclosure is suited for high data retention requirements that are expected to grow. Innovative drive placement maximizes airflow and minimizes power consumption, and unique performance, efficiency, and scalability features provide an unprecedented low TCO.

Build In Security at the Foundation of the Data Life Cycle
Protect your most valuable business assets with Seagate Secure™ cybersecurity features.

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.
