World’s Highest Capacity and Most Efficient SSDs
ExaDrive SSDs offer a unique balance of capacity, performance, energy efficiency, and value. With its 3.5” form factor, ExaDrive SSDs are plug-and-play compatible with SATA and SAS-based servers, enabling you to upgrade from HDDs to SSDs quickly and affordably. ExaDrive SSDs offer more capacity, better performance, lower power consumption, and better reliability than nearline HDDs. While NVMe SSDs are faster, they use substantially more power, offer less capacity, and have higher OpEx costs. ExaDrive strikes the ideal balance between nearline HDDs and NVMe SSDs, offering an ideal storage solution for the rapid growth in unstructured data.
Benefits of ExaDrive SSDs
|Up to 6:1 reduction in space versus nearline HDDs, improving density.
|Up to 85% lower power draw per TB than nearline HDDs, reducing OpEx.
|3.5” SATA/SAS, just like HDDs, so you can avoid costly server upgrades.
|Higher Utilization Rates
|Utilization rates can be improved to 90%+ versus 60% with HDDs, a 50% gain.
|Longer Workload Rating
|8x higher workload rating than nearline HDDs, which are rated at only 550 TB/yr.
|Up to 75% fewer BTU’s of cooling per TB than nearline HDDs, reducing costs.
|Improved Storage Efficiency
|Unlike HDDs, SSDs are fast enough to support inline dedupe/compression.
|Enterprise-grade flash, integrated power-loss protection, and faster RAID rebuilds.
|Optimizes data center footprint to scale capacity with less infrastructure.
|Reduced Software Costs
|Higher capacity SSDs reduce the number of servers, reducing licensing costs.
|98% lower latency than nearline HDDs, improving the user experience.
|Reduced CPU Costs
|Faster storage performance improves CPU efficiency by 50% or more.
