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.
