Seagate Exos X14 14TB HDD Review

We tested the Exos X14 with a number of scenarios that it may face in the real world. The settings for these scenarios are as follows.

File Server
512MB file size, 16KB Block size
80% Read 20% Write 100% Random
I/O queue depth 128

Web Server
1GB file size, 16KB Block size
100% Read 0% Write 100% Random
I/O queue depth 64

Database
2GB file size, 4KB Block size
90% Read 10% Write, 90% Random, 10% Sequential
I/O depth 128


In our workload tests, the Exos X14 isn’t as fast as the other 14TB Seagate drive we’ve recently tested, the IronWolf Pro, with the exception coming in the Database test where the Exos X14 is a good deal quicker.
