Seagate Hard-Launches 12TB Consumer Drives
« on: October 10, 2017, 10:32:40 AM »
Mechanical drives aren't going anywhere for a while. The reason why is the speed has improved so much in the past few years as platter density has increased. Also, the massive size and cost per GB of a mechanical drive is far better than anything solid-state. The proof is that Seagate has officially launched their 12TB consumer drives that come in both the BarraCuda Pro series as well as the IronWolf and IronWolf Pro for the NAS market. I'd LOVE to setup a 8-Bay NAS with a whackload of these. 72TB + Dual RAID 5 redundancy? Yes please!

   Offering the highest capacity, reliability, performance and system scalability in the industry, Seagate’s 12TB IronWolf and IronWolf Pro HDDs empower customers to centralize 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.Source: Seagate
