    Optimized for desktop computing (Barracuda) and NAS (IronWolf and IronWolf Pro), these new 12 TB drives are now shipping. All three models are 3.5”-sized SATA drives with 7200 RPM spindle speeds and 256 MB cache.

    Barracuda Pro drives are designed for desktop users, creatives and DAS devices and have a maximum sustained transfer rate of 250 MB/s.

    Designed for storage devices like NAS and RAID arrays (up to 8 bays for IronWolf and 16 bays for IronWolf Pro), and services ranging from backup to virtualization, IronWolf and IronWolf Pro 12 TB drives come optimized for storage with Seagate’s AgileArray subsystem. AgileArray provides balancing services and power management needed for drives to flourish in multi-bay systems that stay on all the time. Also, both IronWolf drives use RV (rotational vibration) sensors that detect and help compensate for vibrations created by the drives within their enclosures.

    In Q42017, IronWolf Health Management will also be available for 12 TB IronWolf drives used with NAS systems from Synology, Asustor, and QNAP, providing stats and information that help prolong the lives of the drives and their NAS devices. As for maximum transfer rates, Seagate lists the IronWolf at 210 MB/s and the IronWolf Pro at 250 MB/s.

    Seagate didn’t mention any pricing, however, the new drives will be available soon. All three drives are covered with Seagate’s own Rescue Data Recovery for the first two years, and come with 3-year (IronWolf) and 5-year (Barracuda and IronWolf Pro) limited warranties.
