Seagate's Exos X20 HDD utilizes Seagate Secure technology as well as a 2.5M-hr MTBF rating, allowing business enterprises to recognize the need for maximum data and efficient operations, along with the highest storage capacities.
Paired with Seagate’s Exos CORVAULT intelligent storage system, the Exos X20 HDD delivers maximum data transfers and storage on a minimum footprint size. The Exos CORVAULT offers over 2.12PB of SAN-level performance structured on Seagate’s technologically advanced storage architecture, which is built on Seagate’s in-house 4U chassis which accommodates up to 106 Exos enterprise drives in an amazing 7-inches of rack space.
Scalable, Responsive, and Innovative Enterprise Solutions
Seagate’s Exos X20 enterprise HDD is designed for maximum storage capacity and the highest rack-space efficiency. Built with cloud storage in mind, the 20TB Exos X20 delivers performance for hyperscale data centers and massive scale-out applications.
