Exos EnterpriseOverview:

Scalable. Responsive. Innovative.

For everything hyperscale, there’s ExosTM X— the most powerful way to access the datasphere and harness the full potential of the cloud. Exos X16, Exos X14, Exos X12, and Exos X10 enterprise hard drives integrate the latest technology in support of a scalable, secure, and reliable cloud data center.* Specifically designed to work in highly scalable environments requiring low power consumption and weight, the Exos X series hard drives perform consistently while scaling to meet the stringent TCO requirements of most cloud-based data centers.

Exos X14 Series

Seagate manufactures hard drives that specifically address the needs of the hyperscale storage market. As the flagship of the Seagate X class, the Exos™ X14 and Exos X14z enterprise hard drives are the highest-capacity hard drives in the fleet.

Built-in Data Protection Built-in Data Protection

Seagate Secure Instant Secure Erase drives simplify drive repurposing and disposal, protect data-at-rest and help comply with corporate and federal data security mandates.

Prevent unauthorized access and safeguard stored data with three levels of security, including Secure Downloads & Diagnostics (SD&D), TCG-compliant Self-Encrypting Drive and government-grade FIPS/Common Criteria tamper-resistant hard drive.2

   
Data Management Data Management Made Easy
  • Simplify infrastructure management with the FastFormat feature for advanced format (4Kn and 512e)
  • Unprecedented power savings during idle times with PowerChoice technology for TCO improvement
  • Use Instant Secure Erase for easy drive disposal and repurposing if and when needed
