Business disk for mass storage applications
The Exos 7E8 hard drive supports mass storage for data center infrastructures that require a highly reliable hard drive for the business market. Exos 7E8 offers inexpensive and reliable access to unstructured data. The Exos 7E2 hard drive is based on the proven ninth-generation conventional magnetic recording technology (CMR) and accelerates the data atmosphere so that data center architects and IT professionals can achieve reliable performance, solid stability, absolute security and low TCO for demanding 24 × 7- use.
Robust mass storage of data for a 24x7 world
Exos 7E8 drives are supported by a 2 million-hour MTBF and support workloads of 550 TB per year - 10x as much as desktop drives. Thanks to state-of-the-art cache, on-the-fly error correction algorithms and vibration resistance, the Exos 7E8 delivers constant performance in replicated and multi-disk RAID systems.
High performance for regular data center applications
Meet the requirements of your storage system in the most effective and cost efficient way that is currently available on the market for data centers. The Exos 7E8 easily integrates into mass storage systems with 12Gb/s SAS and SATA 6Gb/s interface options. Thanks to adaptable, innovative technological developments, such as PowerChoice and Seagate RAID Rebuild, you can adjust your nearline storage requirements for an even better TCO.
Improved reliability, data protection and security
