Seagate Expands Portfolio with 12TB Drives for NAS and Desktop Computing

Seagate Technology has announced that its IronWolf, IronWolf Pro and BarraCuda Pro hard drives will now be available in capacities up to 12TB.

“Our storage hungry customers and partners continue to ask for our latest and greatest technology along with increased capacity and performance in our purpose built products,” said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of Business Marketing at Seagate Technology.

“With the 12TB Pro products, Seagate buyers are overcoming capacity constraints in their systems and can access vast amounts of digital data anytime, from anywhere.”

Seagate say that the new 12TB BarraCuda Pro HDD is the fastest, highest-capacity and most reliable hard drive for desktop computing available on the market. With double the capacity of its closest competitor, they say the BarraCuda Pro can meet any number of demanding data management needs from creative editing workflows to gaming to desktop computing.

Meanwhile, the 12TB IronWolf and IronWolf Pro HDDs are designed to empower customers to centralise their data onto NAS systems to ensure round-the-clock access for multiple users. With a compact 3.5 inch form factor, IronWolf and IronWolf Pro offer more capacity in less space - whether it's being used for file-sharing, remote access and as a backup for SMBs, enterprises and creative professionals.

PC World understands that the Barracuda Pro 12TB is not being launched yet in Australia yet due to limited market demand. However, the IronWolf and IronWolf Pro will be available locally through the channel from today.

In Australia, the 12TB Seagate IronWolf will retail for AUD $689. In New Zealand, it's priced at NZD $789.

The 12TB IronWolf Pro is priced a little higher at AUD $779  and NZD $889 respectively.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
