Seagate adds to their Guardian Series lineup with capacities up to 12TB, for the IronWolf, IronWolf Pro and BarraCuda Pro hard drives. With the highest capacity in the industry at 12 TB, the Seagate drives are made for network-attached storage (NAS) and desktop HDDs; meeting the growing data needs of large enterprise business, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and creative professionals.
Seagate ramped up the capacity on their offering to cater for contents – including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 4K resolution and 360-degree videos – and offer scalability with increased space and speed.
“Our storage hungry customers and partners continue to ask for our latest and greatest technology along with increased capacity and performance in our purpose built products,” said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of Business Marketing at Seagate Technology. “With the 12TB Pro products, Seagate buyers are overcoming capacity constraints in their systems and can access vast amounts of digital data anytime, from anywhere.”
12TB BarraCuda Pro Desktop Drive
Seagate’s 12TB BarraCuda Pro HDD is the fastest, highest-capacity and most reliable hard drive of the lineup. With 12TB of capacity, the BarraCuda Pro can meet demanding data management needs from creative editing workflows to gaming to desktop computing. The drive’s high speed means that data-intensive activities like large file transfers and photo-editing are faster when using BarraCuda Pro.
12TB IronWolf and IronWolf Pro for NAS
Seagate’s 12TB IronWolf and IronWolf Pro HDDs empower customers to centralise their data onto NAS systems to ensure round-the-clock access for multiple users. At 12TB and in only a 3.5 inch form factor, IronWolf and IronWolf Pro offer more capacity in less space, meeting the needs for file-sharing, remote access and backup for SMBs, enterprises and creative professionals.
The new 12TB drives also support Seagate’s IronWolf Health Management (IHM) software. Designed to operate on enabled Synology DiskStation NAS, Asustor NAS, and QNAP NAS, populated with Seagate IronWolf or IronWolf Pro drives, IHM improves the overall system reliability by displaying actionable prevention, intervention or recovery options for the user and will be available within the next quarter with NAS partners.
The 12TB versions of IronWolf, IronWolf Pro and BarraCuda Pro are now shipping to customers worldwide.
