Seagate debuts new NAS hard drives

The hard drive maker Seagate has announced the arrival of new Enterprise NAS hard drives – a high capacity drive line, which targets businesses that need to optimize their computing for performance and reliability by using Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems. The new drives provide performance and enterprise-class reliability in up to 16-bay rack mount chassis and are designed for 24×7 usage during demanding workloads in environments that do no compromise.

“As the industry moves deeper into the cloud era, all businesses need solutions that enable applications to be accessed anywhere at any time,” said Scott Horn, Seagate vice president of marketing. “With our portfolio of NAS products, we can effectively target the needs of all types of businesses and scale with them as they grow in size. These drives are tailored to the requirements of businesses, ensuring customers have choices so they are only paying for the features they need.”

The new Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD line is available in capacities of 2 TB, 3 TB, 4 TB, 5 TB and 6 TB and features a spindle speed of 7200 rpm. It can deliver up to 96 TB in one 16-bay rack mount chassis or tower form factor. This means the new line can deliver the highest capacity available on the market, according to Seagate. Using RV sensor technology, the Enterprise NAS HDD can also sustain performance streaming and random read/write workloads for growing business data needs, intrinsically adjusting and compensating based on usage.

“QNAP constantly strives to provide business users with reliable and scalable NAS solutions for storage, backup, iSCSI and virtualization applications, and many other practical business applications,” said Meiji Chang, general manager of QNAP Systems, Inc. “Seagate’s Enterprise NAS HDD allows us to deliver a compelling and cost-effective NAS offering that meets the capacity, performance, availability and reliability requirements of our end customers.”

The Enterprise NAS HDD also enjoys support from Seagate’s own Rescue Data Recovery plans (optional), which means that in the event of a failure of any kind you are protected. The plans provide end-to-end protection, which enables industry-leading data recovery with more than 90 per cent success rate. The plans also cover NAS HDDs targeting the SOHO and prosumer NAS market and Surveillance HDDs targeting video surveillance systems.

No word on pricing as of now.
