I've not used them, but Exos disks ought to be be just fine. You don't stay in
business by selling junk to enterprise customers.

The Exos 2X14 is a fascinating device due to its dual actuators, and thus has
twice the throughput and IOPS. It's like getting two 7TB disks in a single 3.5"
slot and uses just one SATA/SAS lane so good for high storage density. I
suspect it makes it twice as unreliable though. I also can't find them for sale
