ExaDrive®

World’s Highest Capacity and Most Efficient SSDs

Artificial intelligence, scientific research, cloud computing, and ever-richer digital content demand massive storage capacity and exceptional performance. At the same time, organizations are grappling with growing power, space, and cooling costs. Compounding the problem is the massive amount of data being generated at the edge, creating new challenges in data transport and migration. As the world’s highest capacity and highest density SSD, ExaDrive is purpose-built to meet these challenges. ExaDrive offers capacity, energy efficiency, and endurance unrivaled in the market, thanks to an innovative, patent-pending architecture. ExaDrive is available in capacities ranging from 16 TB to 100 TB, using either SATA or dual-port SAS interfaces, with both TLC and QLC flash models.

Why ExaDrive?

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 and JBODs, 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

Space Savings Up to 6:1 reduction in space versus nearline HDDs, improving density.
Power Reduction Up to 85% lower power draw per TB than nearline HDDs, reducing OpEx.
Chassis Standardization 3.5” SATA/SAS, just like HDDs, so you can avoid costly server/JBOD 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.
Cooling Savings 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.
Superior Reliability Enterprise-grade flash, integrated power-loss protection, and faster RAID rebuilds.
Increased Scalability Optimizes data center footprint to scale capacity with less infrastructure.
Reduced Software Costs Higher capacity SSDs reduce the number of servers, reducing licensing costs.
Performance Gains 98% lower latency than nearline HDDs, improving the user experience.
Reduced CPU Costs Faster storage performance improves CPU efficiency by 50% or more.
