Seagate Fuels Converged Storage Platform with New Exos AP Enterprise Data Storage System Controller Powered by AMD EPYC Processors

Managing massive datasets is excessively complex and costly. Today, Seagate Technology Holdings plc, a world leader in mass-data storage infrastructure solutions, announced the new Exos® Application Platform (AP) with a new controller featuring 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors. The efficient, scalable, affordable end-to-end compute and storage platform delivers integrated compute and storage in a single enclosure optimising rack space utilisation, power efficiency, heat dissipation and storage density.

Ken Claffey, Senior Vice President, Systems at Seagate, said, “Data is often discarded because the cost of keeping it is immediate, despite significant potential future payoffs,” “The new Exos AP with AMD EPYC processors can help IT professionals build a cost-effective data management strategy that intelligently captures, stores, and analyses data today and leverages it in the future to drive success.”

 Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Business Unit, AMD, said “We are excited that Seagate picked AMD EPYC processors to power new Exos AP solution,” “Combining the processors’ high performance and formidable I/O connectivity capabilities and Seagate’s industry-leading mass data expertise, creates a solution that delivers flexibility and performance while helping enterprises customers improve TCO.”

AMD EPYC processors offer a combination of features to help support the need for advanced storage solutions. In the Exos AP Enterprise Data Storage System Controller, AMD EPYC processors offer core counts of 8, 12, or 16 for varying levels of performance. Finally, the Exos AP system supports 25 GbE on the motherboard providing base I/O which is often an added cost on other competitor platforms.
