TCO Benefits

42% lower TCO than enterprise SSDs

ExaDrive SSDs draw 85% less power, require 85% less rack space, and use 85% less cooling per terabyte than existing enterprise SSDs. This enables up to 6:1 consolidation, eliminating CapEx like enclosures, cabling, and racks, while reducing component count to improve reliability and reduce administrative complexity.

Dramatic TCO Benefits

Space Savings At 100 TB, ExaDrive enables 10:1 space reduction versus 10 TB nearline HDDs, reducing overall rack needs by 90%.
Power Reduction ExaDrive offers up 85% lower power per terabyte that competing enterprise SSDs and nearline HDDs.
Superior Write Endurance Supporting unlimited writes for the full 5 year warranty, ExaDrive SSDs do away with confusing drive-write-per-day restrictions that hamper your workload and complicate your IT planning.
Refresh Postponement With unlimited write endurance for 5 years and a 2.5 million hour MTBF, ExaDrive SSDs offer a longer usable life than typical enterprise SSDs, eliminating costly hardware refreshes.
Cooling Savings ExaDrive SSDs require up to 85% fewer BTUs of cooling per terabyte than existing enterprise SSDs and nearline HDDs, eliminating CapEx and variable costs.
Inline Deduplication and Compression Nearline HDDs are too slow to support inline deduplication and compression, but SSDs most definitely can, multiplying the effective capacity even further.
Reduced CPU Costs The improvement in storage performance reduces IO wait cycles, improving CPU efficiency by 50% or more.
Superior Reliability No moving parts means fewer drive swaps and fewer RAID rebuilds that negatively impact your infrastructure.
Reduced Administration Costs SSD performance simplifies array configuration and accelerates setup, reducing costly administration time.
Chassis Standardization Conforming to the 3.5” standard, it helps customers avoid having to buy a 2.5” chassis that other SSDs require.
