Seagate expands guardian series portfolio
Vendor unveils 12TB drives for NAS and desktop computing
Seagate Technology has launched its IronWolf, IronWolf Pro and BarraCuda Pro hard drives, which are now available at capacities up to 12TB.
Offering the highest capacity, reliability and performance in network-attached storage (NAS) and desktop HDDs, Seagate's 12TB IronWolf and BarraCuda Pro drives further extend the capabilities of the vendor's Guardian Series to meet the growing data needs of large enterprise business, SMBs and creative professionals.
The company said across the globe, the industry is experiencing a massive increase in the volume of data created, with a recent study by IDC and Seagate finding that data creation will swell to a total of 163 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025, 10 times more than today.
"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."
Seagate said its latest portfolio of 12TB drives are designed for today's media storage needs - including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 4K resolution and 360-degree videos - and offer scalability for the future with increased space and speed.
