    Seagate announces the 5U84 high-density enclosure built with a next-generation operating system

    I know some of you would love having this in your home racks but this is for you enterprise guys.  Seagate has just announced the 5U84 which can hold 1.0PB of data in a small enclosure.

     

    Screen Shot 2018-01-07 at 5.17.21 PM.png

     

    Key Features:

    • 5U rack-mount enclosure stores up to 8 petabytes of data per rack

    • Efficient power conversion

    • Up to 84 3.5” SAS hard disk drives or solid state drives per 5U enclosure

    • Drawer design provides extremely high density per rack unit

    • Easy access to hot swap drives

    • Expansion capability up to 336 drives

    • Dual 12Gb SAS I/O modules with integral data path redundancy for high-availability

    • Dual controller configuration that supports multiple chassis, which lowers SKUs and complex configuration issues

    • Unparalleled optimization and reliability

    • Ultra high performance of 600K IOPS at 1ms latency for 2U24 AFA configurations at 1ms latency for near instantaneous access to data

    Quote

    A recent study by IDC and Seagate showed that by 2025 the global datasphere could grow to a staggering 163 zettabytes, with enterprises being responsible for creating 60% of this data. With the sheer volume of data forecasted to be created over the coming years, businesses are looking for a way to solve their capacity needs without having to sacrifice on space. The 5U84 system delivers just that, a space-conscious storage model that packs up to 1.0 PB of raw storage capacity into a single chassis, which is expertly designed to occupy only five data center rack units. Hosting 84 drive bays that are rigorously tested to function with 8, 10, and even 12 TB drives, the product density of the 5U84 allows for a large quantity of data to be stored in a smaller space. Due to the 5U84’s density, the cost of floor space is reduced, along with heating, cooling and maintenance.

     

    Stay tuned to this blog as I will catch up with Seagate at CES 2018 to find out more.

      There is an Amazon link to buy it and December 17th to 22nd it will also be $20 off on the Circle website.  So heads up!
       
      Take a look at the video below for a better understanding of what it can do for you.  In my house, if anything hops on my wifi the box will notify me immediately.  I've set it up so anything that jumps on is put in a KID friendly profile.  I look at what they are seeing on their iPads and can turn off apps. YouTube, Safari, App Store = Off.

      Think garage, server rack, etc.  You can get different sizes and different packages that include 4, 6, 8, panels.  There is an option to turn it on via motion as well.  I just put a set in my garage and they are real easy to put up.
