When Seagate launched the Barracuda Pro in late July, they also launched and rebranded their entire lineup of HDD solutions. The Surveillance drive became the Skyhawk, SSHD is now FireCuda, and the NAS HDD is now called IronWolf.
With the rebranding comes a new 10TB Helium solution for both the SkyHawk and IronWolf lineups, and with the latter in house today, we are going to run it through some testing. The IronWolf takes advantage of a number of technologies that increase reliability in multiple drive arrays including AgileArray, a multi-part system that includes the likes of AccuTrack that gives tolerance for vibration in multi-bay environments along with rotational vibration sensors and dual-plane balancing.
Taking a closer look at the specification sheet above, the IronWolf uses the VN identifier whereas the Barracuda Pro used DM as its identifier. The interface is SATA 6Gb/s, and this solution is ready for one to eight bay systems and 180TB/Yr. Sustained performance is said to be around 210 MB/s with a 7200RPM spindle speed and 256MB cache.
Load/Unload cycles sit at 600K with a MTBF of one million hours. Power starts with a typical current of 1.8A and 6.8 watts, and down to 4.4 watts at idle and 0.8 watts in sleep. MSRP of the 10TB Seagate IronWolf comes in at $469.99 with a three-year warranty.
