Seagate Unveils the IronWolf Pro 10TB NAS HDD

Seagate Technology has announced the Seagate IronWolf Pro NAS HDD, which is designed for small-to-midsize enterprises that manage huge amounts of data as well as workload rates of up to 300TB. The new IronWolf drive is also backed by a standard two-year Seagate Rescue Data Recovery Service Plan, a warranty that covers disasters such as floods, fires and even accidental damage.

For further optimization in NAS environments, the new Seagate drive leverages AgileArray, a technology that helps businesses improve performance for file-sharing, backup and private cloud environments. In addition, Seagate claims that AgileArray provides drive balancing by using dual-plane balance and rotational vibration sensors, RAID optimization for increased performance and advanced power management.

Seagate indicates the following key features:

  • Rotational vibration (RV) sensors to support consistent performance by reducing vibration in one-to-16-bay NAS systems.
  • 10TB capacity means more physical bay space available for redundancy or more storage.
  • Expanded multi-user capabilities to deliver a user workload rate of 300TB per year.
  • IronWolf Pro includes Seagate's market-leading Rescue Data Recovery service, which covers accidental damage as well as damage caused by a natural disaster, such as a fire or flood.
