Seagate has announced drives that have capacities appropriate for servers, NAS and killer desktops. Seagate is introducing three new drives to address the current computing environment. The Barracuda Pro 10TB desktop drive is a high performer that spins at 7,200RPM and includes a five-year warranty. The IronWolf 10TB NAS drive is a drive for network attached storage. The SkyHawk 10TB Surveillance drive is similar to the IronWolf but is designed as a 24-7 host of storage for surveillance cameras.
All of the drives are 3.5 inch drives and support SATA 3 speeds. The Barracuda Pro and the IronWolf are available now at the suggested prices of $535 and $470, respectively. The SkyHawk will be released later this year and will cost $460. Should you jump on the 10TB drive bandwagon? Perhaps sit around and just go with the 8TB versions unless you really need the additional 2TB per drive.
