In case you were always left high and dry every time a company unveiled a large-capacity hard drive for enterprise customers, you’re in luck today. Seagate has come out with a bunch of new 14 TB HDDs for the consumer market, allowing you to finally bid your storage anxiety goodbye.
The included hard drives include both network-attached and standard ones. Only the BarraCuda storage out of the three falls in the direct-attached storage category.
BarraCuda’s massive 14 TB of storage allows you to store up to 9000 hours of HD video. There’s also 256 MB of cache, with Seagate’s multi-tier caching technology onboard, which is the highest you can get in a hard drive right now.
It has the usual 3.5-inch format, with a spin speed of 7200 RPM speed, allowing data transfer speed of up to 250 MB/s. It comes with a warranty of five years.
For network-attached storage requirements, you get the IronWold and IronWolf Pro HDDs, both of them boasting workload ratings of 300 TB writes per year. Both come with 3 and 5 years of limited warranties, respectively.
For added security, they come with features like IronWolf Health Management, advanced power management, error recovery control, and rotational vibration (RV) sensors, so you can monitor them much precisely.
The prices for the hard drives start at $529.99 for the IronWolf, with the IronWolf Pro costing $599.99. The BarraCuda Pro will sit in between at $579.99.
