Seagate today announced a new portfolio of 10TB high capacity hard drives named the Guardian Series. It is targeted towards home users for better managing the huge amounts of digital data they consume and create. The new 10TB Seagate BarraCuda Pro desktop drive, Seagate IronWolf for NAS applications and Seagate SkyHawk for surveillance are the new brand names.
BarraCuda Pro 10TB Desktop Drive
As data becomes the life blood of all online interaction and workforce productivity, Seagate has brought back its hugely popular BarraCuda brand to respond to demands for high capacity storage at an affordable price point. BarraCuda Pro combines 10TB at 7200 RPM for outstanding performance, and includes power-saving features to help keep drive operating costs low, as well as a 5-year limited warranty for peace of mind.
With its enduring legacy of PC Compute drives, BarraCuda responds to market demands for high performance hard drives that don’t sacrifice capacity or affordability. The 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch fierce BarraCuda drives offer a versatile and dependable line of hard drives for nearly every application and budget. Lightweight and robust, the 2.5 inch BarraCuda drive delivers market-leading cost/TB options in a thin 7mm form factor with up to 2TB of capacity.
IronWolf 10TB for NAS
Tough, ready, and scalable, IronWolf combines the legacy of big iron with tough, pack-leading performance for NAS applications and a wide range of capabilities designed to meet the most challenging always-on environments. NAS-optimized with AgileArray, IronWolf is built with drive balance, and is the first in its class of drives to have rotational vibration (RV) sensors to mitigate vibration in multi-drive systems, RAID optimization for best performance with error recovery control, and advance power management providing power savings in NAS. The result is power when and where it’s needed most. IronWolf raises the bar even further with multi-user technology that provides a 180TB/year user workload rate.
SkyHawk 10TB for Surveillance
An industry first, Seagate celebrates its 10th year of shipping surveillance drives with its latest 10TB SkyHawk offering for surveillance systems relying on large storage solutions for network video recording (NVR). SkyHawk drives use rotational vibration sensors to help minimize read/write errors, and can support the razor sharp vision of 64 cameras, more than any other drive on the market. Ideal for modern, hi-resolution systems running 24/7, SkyHawk drives also come with a data recovery services option for additional peace of mind.
IronWolf and BarraCuda Pro are now shipping worldwide, and SkyHawk is currently sampling to select customers with wide-scale availability to be announced shortly.
