Seagate Exos X12 Series
Seagate manufactures hard drives that specifically address the needs of the hyperscale storage market. As the flagship of the Seagate® X class, the Exos™ X12 enterprise hard drive is the highest-capacity hard drive in the fleet.
Scales to meet your growing capacity needs
Seagate Exos X12 enterprise hard drives offer the highest rack space efficiency — up to 10 PB of data in a single 42U rack. Enhanced caching makes it perfect for Big Data applications, providing the fastest hard drive data transfers in the datasphere. Hyperscale SATA models are tuned for large data transfers, providing low latency. You can easily customise your bulk storage requirements with innovative technology advancements (PowerBalance™, PowerChoice™ and RAID Rebuild®).
Exos X12 drives help provide low data centre TCO, and are architected to offer low power and weight. Simplified infrastructure management is possible with FastFormat™ advanced format feature (4Kn and 512e). Advanced Write Caching helps ensure rapid response rates with a 20% boost in random write performance.
Innovative helium design
The Exos X12 hard drive is built on a rock-solid sealed-drive design. A wrought-aluminium base and a helium sealed-drive design with no porosity and uniform density are designed with superior material and wide-weld design for a more robust, hermetically sealed-drive enclosure. Exos X12 hard drives incorporate digital environmental sensors for measuring pressure in the drive, helping to ensure high reliability, performance and quality.
Enhanced enterprise reliability, data protection and security
Seagate is the industry leader in data-at-rest protection with the broadest offering of technologies to help ensure reliable, trusted products. Seagate Secure™ models provide hardware-based security to help protect data-at-rest. With Instant Secure Erase, drive retirement is safe, affordable, fast and easy.

The new school year is a good time to reflect on the role of security in protecting our schools. From video to access control to some newer technologies, our Expert Panel Roundtable found plenty to talk about when we asked this week’s question: How does security technology make our schools safer?
Artificial intelligence is on the verge of changing the face of multiple industries – from healthcare to entertainment to finance, from data security to manufacturing to the cars we drive (or that will drive themselves!) In the physical security market, AI has garnered a lot of attention as a buzzword and as a harbinger of things to come. We asked this week's Expert Panel Roundtable: What security markets are most likely to embrace artificial intelligence (AI)?
In the digital age, software is a component of almost all systems, including those that drive the physical security market. A trend toward hardware commoditisation is making the role of software even more central to providing value to security solutions. Software developments make more things possible and drive innovation in the market. We asked this week's Expert Panel Roundtable: How do software improvements drive physical security?

Frame drop is one of the key problems in IP surveillance systems. The consequence of dropped frames is recording gaps, which translate into lost images that can consequently mean loss of valuable business intelligence or severe financial damages. Integration of Seagate Skyhawk To solve this problem, Rasilient Systems, a Silicon Valley-based manufacturer of purpose-built surveillance recording servers and storage systems partners with Seagate to include Skyhawk drives in all their systems. &ldq...
British Airways i360 is a 162-metre (531 ft.) tall observation tower on the seafront of Brighton on the UK’s south coast, which opened in August 2016 on the site of the historic West Pier. Conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the creators of the London Eye, British Airways i360 is the world’s first vertical cable car and the world’s tallest moving observation tower. Just as the original pier welcomed Victorian society to ‘walk on water’, British Air...
