  • Reduced storage networking resources by up to 50%


Seagate Technology Holdings plc has launched its latest mass data storage system, the Seagate Exos CORVAULT 4U106. With a capacity of 2.5PB, this high-performing block storage system offers increased rack density, longer lifecycles, and lower power consumption per petabyte, resulting in reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).

The Seagate Exos CORVAULT 4U106 is equipped with Seagate’s high-capacity Exos hard drives, which, when combined with self-healing technology, create an efficient petabyte storage building block for scale-out data center architecture. This reduces storage networking resources by up to 50% and improves total rack power efficiency by up to 30%. The self-healing capabilities of Seagate’s Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR) and Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) minimize downtime and optimize data center resources, leading to reduced maintenance and human intervention, as well as a smaller carbon footprint and less e-waste.

Alexander Ruebensaal, CEO of ABC Systems AG, highlighted the significance of the Seagate Exos CORVAULT for organizations with substantial data storage requirements and budget constraints. He stated that by adopting this solution, customers could reduce their total storage costs by up to 80% annually compared to previous solutions. These cost savings can then be redirected towards scientific research and other important endeavors.

The Seagate Exos CORVAULT 4U106 is currently available in a 2PB conventional magnetic recording (CMR)-based configuration. However, it will soon be offered in 2PB and 2.5PB Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR)-based configurations as well. Both capacities in the new configurations can be ordered from storage resellers worldwide starting in November, with product availability expected by the end of December.
