Seagate NAS drives ( earlier known as NM drives) have a new avatar. They will be called IronWolf drives. Off course this is not just a re branding of existing product but a revamped product with many added features. These drives have just been launched and inventories are probably a few weeks away, but what we already know about these drives is
- We have capacities upto 10TB. This is the largest capacity available in hard drives in this segment (ST10000VN0004)
- Dual Pane balance and RV sensors on 6,8,10TB drives for extra stability
- Error Recovery Control for better RAID
- Advanced power management
- Upto 256MB Cache
Releasing a 10TB capacity has really upped the game in this segment. Typically the higher capacities are popular as they help NAS users conserve number of bays for future expansion.
