Seagate Unveils Massive 10TB Hard Drives To Meet All Storage Needs

Seagate is releasing not one but three 10TB HDs: the Barracuda Pro, the IronWolf, and the SkyHawk, all of which belong to their new Guardian line. Respectively, these are suited toward desktop usage, NAS, and surveillance. I really like the animal branding their designers came up with.

According to Seagate, the Barracuda Pro 10TB desktop drive is a high performer that spins at 7,200RPM and includes a five-year warranty. The IronWolf 10TB NAS drive is a "tough, ready and salable" drive that's designed specifically for network attached storage (NAS) servers. It has rotational vibration (RV) sensors to to reduce vibration in multidrive systems, RAID optimization and power-saving features. Finally, the SkyHawk 10TB Surveillance drive is similar to the IronWolf but is designed as a 24-7 host of storage for surveillance cameras, supporting high-resolution images from multiple cameras simultaneously.
