Seagate Technology has unveiled the Seagate IronWolf Pro for NAS applications. It is built to help small-to-midsize enterprises better manage the massive amounts of data they create and consume, IronWolf Pro empowers SMEs to keep the right data ready for use with extreme workload rates of up to 300TB, and blistering fast access, so they can quickly discover and capitalize on new business opportunities.
IronWolf Pro comes standard with a two-year Seagate Rescue Data Recovery Service Plan, meaning IronWolf Pro drives are covered when disaster strikes – such as a flood, fire or accidental damage. In addition to IronWolf Pro, Seagate’s BarraCuda Pro drives also come standard with recovery services for complete peace of mind across the entire Pro series.
“An extension of Seagate’s Guardian Series of 10TB hard drives launched in July, the IronWolf Pro gives businesses greater durability and agility to run their heaviest workloads in large, multi-user NAS environments,” said Jeff Fochtman, vice president of global marketing at Seagate. “With the added peace of mind of Seagate Rescue, businesses can know their data is safe.”
key features include:
- Rotational vibration (RV) sensors to support consistent performance by reducing vibration in one-to-16-bay NAS systems.
- 10TB capacity, means more data to serve for businesses. More 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 – more than five times the rate of a standard desktop drive.
- 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.
