- Future-proof your data center with support for current and nextgeneration HDDs and SSDs
- Enable full drive performance in all slots with built-in technology to minimize drive performance degradation
Limitless data growth
Keep your data safe
Reduce Data Center Footprint
The growth of the private cloud means enterprises of all sizes need storage solutions. Dedicated space is often limited and expensive. With the Exos AP 4U100, the data center footprint is dramatically reduced, saving real estate investment and reducing heating and cooling costs. Other storage center racks must house both storage and servers. This system’s unique design and precision engineering allow both the intelligent compute of a server and a whopping 1.6PB1 of data storage.
Deliver Reliable Building Blocks for the Modern Cloud
Integrated appliances are more reliable and less costly due to fewer cables and connectors, typically the lowest MTBF components in the system. The Exos AP 4U100 future-proofs our modular data center systems for even greater density with next-generation Seagate media. Upgrading a system is as simple as hot-swapping drives. And because it shares design and multiple FRUs with Exos E 4U106, any data center can easily create an entire serviceable ecosystem. Four optional 4 × 2.5-in carriers give users SSD performance along with HDD capacity.
Ensure Applications Have Access to Critical Data
Safeguard your data with dual Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs in two controllers per Exos AP 4U100, providing powerful redundancy and multi-node capability. Built-in technology minimizes drive performance degradation due to quantity of drives and cooling elements. The Seagate AcousticShield™ noise attenuator drives performance for both the current generation of Seagate media and future technologies.
Reduce Cost and Resources With Energy-Efficient Features
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. It meets stringent worldwide requirements for recycling and environmental friendliness, and can help you minimize environmental impact and recognize cost savings through high performance while reducing power consumption with 80 PLUS Platinum certified power supplies and adaptive cooling technology.
Build In Security at the Foundation of the Data Life Cycle
Protect your most valuable business assets with compatible Seagate Secure™ SSDs and hard drives.
