Maximum Storage Capacity for High Rack Space Efficiency

The Exos X10 enterprise hard drives support up to 10TB per drive,1 providing 25% more petabytes per rack.2 High storage densities allow the latest technology and greatest efficiencies to help catalyze the datasphere, enabling data center architects and IT professionals to deliver trusted performance, rock-solid reliability, ironclad security and low TCO for demanding 24x7 operations.

Industry's Highest Performance Combined With the Lowest Power and Weight for Lower TCO

Exos X10 drives offer the industry's highest 10TB hard drive performance with advanced write caching, making it perfect for OLTP, Hadoop, Ceph and HPC applications. The hyperscale SATA model is tuned for large data transfers and offers a 20% boost in random write performance.2 Experience the industry's best in IOPS/watt by optimizing your storage with Seagate's PowerBalance™ feature.

Innovative Helium Design

The proven, enterprise-class Exos X10 is backed by a 2.5M-hour MTBF. Built on a wroughtaluminum base, the helium-sealed drive design with no porosity and uniform density is engineered with superior material and a wide-weld design, and utilizes the latest hermetic interconnect technology to support higher data rate heads and higher pin counts to excel in extreme thermal conditions in a robust storage infrastructure. These Seagate X class hard drives provide digital environmental sensors that measure internal humidity, pressure and temperature, to help ensure high reliability and performance.

Seagate Secure

Enhanced Enterprise Reliability, Data Protection and Security

The Exos X10 hard drives offer advanced security features that help protect data where it lives-on the drive. Advanced security levels to prevent unauthorised access to a drive and safeguard stored data include Seagate Downloads & Diagnostics, TCG-compliant SelfEncrypting Drive and government-grade FIPS/Common Criteria tamper-resistent hard drive.3 Seagate Secure™ drives simplify drive repurposing and disposal, help protect data-at-rest, and comply with corporate and federal data security mandates.

1 Seagate recommends validating your configuration with your HBA/RAID controller manufacturer to ensure full capacity capabilities.
