Seagate® Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), world leader in data storage technologies and solutions, introduces the new Seagate® Exos® X24 hard drives. Comprising 10 platters with a capacity of 2.4 TB each, the Exos X24 is Seagate’s highest-density hard drive, offering unrivalled total cost of ownership (TCO) for hyperscalers and enterprises with scalable data centers.
The 24TB Exos X24, based on CMR (Classic Magnetic Recording), offers peak capacity, high performance and extreme reliability. Seagate is also maintaining its offer, to a limited number of cloud industry customers, of the flexibility of an Exos X24 shingle magnetic recording (SMR) configuration, with capacities of up to 28TB
Designed for maximum storage capacity and maximum optimization of rack space, the Exos X24 is specially developed for hyperscale, with powerful performance and proven technology. The new 3.5″ 7200rpm helium nearline disk offers SATA and SAS interfaces, as well as optimized caching that’s up to three times more powerful than solutions that use read or write caching alone
The Exos X24 also offers increased Sustained Data Rate (SDR) of up to 285 MB/s and energy efficiency by maintaining IOPs/Watt, as well as industry-leading reliability established with an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) value of 2.5 million hours. It features Seagate Secure™ encryption technology, offering a SED-FIPS self-encrypting disk and Instant Secure Erase (ISE). The Exos X24 comes with a 5-year limited warranty
Seagate’s Exos X24 qualification drives are shipping now to major customers, and production drives will be available in volume from resellers in December. Seagate has also leveraged the same underlying technology platform for its 30TB+ hard drives based on HAMR (Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording) technology, which are scheduled to go into production in early 2024.
