Data storage company, Seagate, has announced the new Exos CORVAULT 5U84 at IBC 2023.

The new mass storage system helps media and entertainment (M&E) organisations “reduce their carbon emissions and operating costs by keeping drives in service for longer, underpinning Seagate’s sustainability mission.” IBC also named it as a Social Impact Award finalist in the Environment and Sustainability category for its circularity program.  

Seagate’s Exos CORVAULT is a high-performing, efficient, durable mass-capacity block storage system that is self-healing and brings five-nines availability to scale out storage for data center deployments. Seagate says CORVAULT  is comparable to managing a single hard drive, except with multi-petabyte capacity.  Previously available in a standard 4U form factor for large 1.2-meter-deep racks, Seagate now offers a 5U form factor for smaller 1-meter-deep racks. The Exos CORVAULT 5U84 delivers hyperscale efficiencies to M&E data centers with its rapid deployment, streamlined data management, and reduced human intervention. 

“For many years now, pixitmedia has worked in partnership with Seagate to provide game-changing technology for our M&E customers. Today, we are delighted to combine the new CORVAULT 5U84 with our pixstor software defined storage solution to create high performance, scalable, and flexible data storage with best-in-class TCO that is purpose-built to meet rigorous media workflow demands”, said Ben Leaver, CEO and cofounder of pixitmedia. “Reliable, available, and energy efficient, Seagate data storage systems provide our customers with the freedom to innovate and empower them to collaborate while keeping assets perfectly secure.” 

The new CORVAULT storage solution cuts e-waste, reduces operational costs, and cuts the overall power consumption of CPU, RAM, and networking resources in software defined data center architecture by up to 50%. This is all enabled by Seagate breakthrough data protection technologies including Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology (ADAPT) erasure coding combined with autonomous drive regeneration (ADR) to automatically renew hard drives on demand. 

“Exos CORVAULT’s groundbreaking technology provides a comprehensive high-capacity, secure and reliable storage ideal for the data-hungry M&E industry,” said Melyssa Banda, vice president storage solutions and services at Seagate. “Through ADAPT and ADR innovation, our latest storage solution reinforces our commitment to sustainability. Seagate is leading the way in minimizing electronic waste and environmental impact while maximizing resource efficiency to create a sustainable Datasphere and we are thrilled to be Social Impact Award finalists at IBC this year.”
