CUPERTINO, CA --Seagate Technology plc unveils a new portfolio of 10TB high capacity drives dubbed the Guardian Series. Purpose-built to help customers better manage and move the huge amounts of digital data they consume and create, the 10TB Seagate® BarraCuda® Pro desktop drive, Seagate IronWolf™ for NAS applications and Seagate SkyHawk™ for surveillance introduce new brand names and imagery and represent the most complete 10TB portfolio in the industry. The Guardian Series features industry leading technology that raises the bar on features, speed and capacity for use across a wide range of markets, including personal, creative and design computing, online gaming, small- and medium-sized businesses and large-scale surveillance systems.
Innovative capabilities in the new 10TB drives include multi-tier caching technology (MTC Technology™), an intelligent caching architecture for maximized performance; AgileArray™, designed to optimize drive performance through error recovery control, dual-plane balancing, and power management; and ImagePerfect™ for surveillance, supporting more high resolution cameras than any other industry drive.
Seagate’s 10TB product branding represents the next phase of the company’s new corporate brand unveiled at CES in 2015, in which Seagate introduced its “Living Logo” that visually captured the idea that data is most valuable as part of our daily lives at home and at work. The new Guardian Series product brands link this living data concept more directly to Seagate’s foundational technologies in a way that is memorable and easier for customers to understand.
BarraCuda Pro 10TB Desktop Drive
As data becomes the life blood of all online interaction and workforce productivity, Seagate has brought back its hugely popular BarraCuda brand to respond to demands for high capacity storage at an affordable price point. BarraCuda Pro combines 10TB at 7200 RPM for outstanding performance, and includes power-saving features to help keep drive operating costs low, as well as a 5-year limited warranty for peace of mind.
With its enduring legacy of PC Compute drives, BarraCuda responds to market demands for high performance hard drives that don’t sacrifice capacity or affordability. The 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch fierce BarraCuda drives offer a versatile and dependable line of hard drives for nearly every application and budget. Lightweight and robust, the 2.5 inch BarraCuda drive delivers market-leading cost/TB options in a thin 7mm form factor with up to 2TB of capacity.

IronWolf 10TB for NAS
Tough, ready, and scalable, IronWolf combines the legacy of big iron with tough, pack-leading performance for NAS applications and a wide range of capabilities designed to meet the most challenging always-on environments. NAS-optimized with AgileArray, IronWolf is built with drive balance, and is the first in its class of drives to have rotational vibration (RV) sensors to mitigate vibration in multi-drive systems, RAID optimization for best performance with error recovery control, and advance power management providing power savings in NAS. The result is power when and where it’s needed most. IronWolf raises the bar even further with multi-user technology that provides a 180TB/year user workload rate.
SkyHawk 10TB for Surveillance
An industry first, Seagate celebrates its 10th year of shipping surveillance drives with its latest 10TB SkyHawk offering for surveillance systems relying on large storage solutions for network video recording (NVR). SkyHawk drives use rotational vibration sensors to help minimize read/write errors, and can support the razor sharp vision of 64 cameras, more than any other drive on the market. Ideal for modern, hi-resolution systems running 24/7, SkyHawk drives also come with a data recovery services option for additional peace of mind.
