Seagate Introduces the Groundbreaking Exos CORVAULT Hardware-Based Self-Healing Block Storage System

June 22, 2021

Next-gen storage intelligence automates maintenance and reduces e-waste while delivering maximum data density

FREMONT, CA — JUNE 22, 2021 — Seagate ® Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage infrastructure solutions, launched a uniquely intelligent category of mass-capacity storage designed to streamline data management and reduce human intervention for macro edge and data center environments. The new Exos® CORVAULT high-density storage system offers SAN-level performance built on Seagate’s breakthrough storage architecture that combines the sixth generation VelosCT ASIC, ADAPT erasure code data protection, and Autonomous Drive Regeneration.

Designed on the Seagate Exos 4U106 12Gb/s platform, CORVAULT offers “five nines” availability (99.999%) helping to deliver consistently high reliability. The maximum-density 4U chassis accommodates 106 drives in only seven inches (18 cm) of rack space. It is tuned to maximize drive performance by protecting against vibrational and acoustic interference, heat, and power irregularities.

Seagate’s new VelosCT chip powers the system’s dual storage controllers, which optimizes all drive actuators in parallel, driving superior performance while Seagate’s Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) distributes data across every drive offering advanced data protection and fast rebuilds without sacrificing performance.

Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR) is a self-correcting system that renews a drive in-situ without the need for a manual drive swap. Developed by Seagate, ADR can return most drives to dependable service by reconfiguring the drive to bypass errant components. The technology also helps reduce the environmental impact of computer e-waste as ADR drives are renewed instead of discarded.

CORVAULT will be available globally via qualified Seagate distributors in July. To find out more, please visit our website.
