Hot on the heels of the launch of its Enterprise Datasphere Fleet of storage solutions earlier this month, Seagate recently staged a product update event, showcasing its IronWolf and IronWolf Pro hard disk drives (HDDs) together with Synology's network-attached storage (NAS) solutions.
Claimed by Seagate as tough, ready, and scalable, both IronWolf and IronWolf Pro HDDs are designed to cater to the requirements of home, creative pro, SOHO, and business users who utilize a NAS appliance. Equipped with Rotational Vibration sensors, these HDDs are adapted to perform 24x7 in multi-bay environments. Featuring Seagate's AgileArray technology, these HDDs promise to deliver remarkable RAID performance and power management.

These HDDs come with 5400 RPM spindle speed, boasting up to one million hours of mean time between failures (MTBF). Seagate offers these drives with a three-year limited warranty.
Meanwhile, recommended for rack servers and NAS appliances with up to 16 bays, IronWolf Pro HDDs come with storage capacities ranging from 2TB to 12TB. These HDDs feature 7200 RPM spindle speed, have an MTBF rating of 1.2 million hours, and come with a longer five-year warranty.
