Seagate Introduces the Exos X24: Merging Performance with Efficiency for Data Centers 

FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 18, 2023 – Seagate Technology Holdings plc, a world leader in data storage technology and solutions, introduced the new Seagate Exos X24 hard drives. With 10 disks delivering 2.4TB each, the Exos X24 is Seagate’s highest density hard drive, offering industry leading total cost of ownership (TCO) for hyperscale customers and enterprises with scale-out data centers.

The conventional magnetic recording (CMR)-based 24TB Exos X24 delivers market-leading capacity, high performance, and enterprise-class reliability. Seagate also continues to offer limited cloud customers the flexibility of a shingled magnetic recording (SMR) Exos X24 configuration at a capacity of up to 28TB.

Designed for maximum storage capacity and the highest rack-space efficiency, Exos X24 is purpose-built for hyperscale with powerful performance and proven technology. The new helium 3.5-inch 7200 RPM nearline drive offers both SATA and SAS interfaces and delivers enhanced caching that performs up to three times better than solutions that only utilize read or write caching.

Exos X24 also delivers increased sustained data rate (SDR) of up to 285 MB/s and power efficiency by maintaining IOPS/Watt and proven enterprise-class reliability with a 2.5M-hr meantime between failures (MTBF) rating. It offers Seagate Secure encryption technology offering self-encrypting drive (SED), SED-FIPS, and instant secure erase (ISE). The Exos X24 is offered with a 5-year limited warranty.

Seagate’s Exos X24 qualification drives are now shipping to key customers and production drives will be available in volume for channel distribution in December. Seagate has leveraged the same underlying technology platform for its 30TB-plus hard drives based on Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) technology, which are on-track to begin ramping production in early 2024.
