This week Seagate has unveiled their new 14TB Helium-Based Exos X14 Enterprise hard drive which is currently being tested by select customers and will be rolling out during the summer months of 2018. The Seagate Exos X14 storage drive has been created to provide users with high performance and greater capacity for hyperscale data centres looking to “efficiently and cost-effectively manage increasing amounts of data”.
The Exos X14 offers the industry’s lowest power consumption, smallest footprint, and best performance in its class. Sai Varanasi, vice president, product line marketing, storage devices at Seagate explains more “Our hyperscale customers want the best value in terms of total cost of ownership and that is mainly driven by capacity, power efficiency, enhanced caching, and predictable I/O”. ”Exos X14 shines on all four fronts by delivering 14TB with leading sustained transfer rates and random I/O responsiveness optimized for hyperscale applications.”
Key features of the 14TB Helium-Based Exos X14 Enterprise hard drive include 40 percent more petabytes per rack versus Exos 10TB drives and a 10 percent weight reduction compared to air nearline drives.
