Exos X 2U24 Advanced Storage Array

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.

A value-rich solution for applications that require massive capacity, performance, low latency, and dual-controller availability. Advanced features include self-healing storage, data protection options, and a full enterprise software stack offering virtual pools, thin provisioning, SSD caching, encryption, auto-tiering, snapshots, and asynchronous replication.

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 10 Enclosures for 120 drives of data storage


Limitless data growth


Industry-first economics


Keep your data safe


Optimized performance and versatility

The ideal solution for customers who need high-capacity storage and the utmost in low latency high IOPs performance, leading scalability, versatile connectivity, and modern drive support with low power consumption.

The Seagate Exos X 2U24 advanced storage array delivers a value-rich solution for applications that require performance, low latency, and dual-controller availability. Featuring self-healing storage with Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) and Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR), a full enterprise software stack including virtual pools, thin provisioning, SSD read cache, encryption, auto-tiering, snapshots, asynchronous replication, and data protection functionality.

Enterprise-Grade Platform

Primary storage for enterprise customers seeking quick, low latency performance in storage networks and direct storage applications.

Dual controllers with new VelosCT architecture and ASIC deliver a rich set of enterprise features including self-healing storage with Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) and Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR), auto-tiering, snapshots, replication, and Seagate’s purpose-built ASIC design that yields satisfying performance and availability.

High Capacity. Small Footprint

Save space with up to 24 SSD or HDD drives and dual controllers all in a 2U rackmount enclosure. Connect 10 enclosures for a total of 240 drives.

The ideal storage solution for a performance-centric workflow that needs larger data storage offering the greatest space utilization with modern technology, high-capacity drives, and lower power consumption.

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 2 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.

Optimized Architecture. The Exos X 2U24 is perfect for businesses with demanding environments that require high read and write throughput while still needing considerable storage space. Built to ensure space is used to its maximum potential, application access to data is virtually instantaneous, ensuring IT and end-users can work more efficiently. Connect up to ten 2U24 enclosures together for a total of 240 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 builtin security measures for reliable and safe file access, transfer, and management.

Improve Hardware and Administrative Efficiency and Reduce Cost. Meet stringent worldwide requirements for recycling and environmental friendliness with a nimble system that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes cost savings through high performance.
