SSDs are all the rage in storage nowadays, but hard drives are still the winners for storing large amounts of data cost-effectively. Seagate is taking the 10TB hard drive to consumers today with its BarraCuda Pro series of drives, part of a broad rebranding effort that brings some clarity to the company's product lines.
The BarraCuda Pro 10TB is a 7200-RPM SATA drive with a 256-MB cache. Seagate claims this drive can perform sustained transfers as fast as 220 MB/s. BarraCuda Pro drives will be available in 6TB and 8TB flavors, as well, and they'll all carry five-year warranties. The 10TB drive will retail for $535, according to Anandtech.
On top of the Barracuda and Barracuda Pro drives, Seagate's "Guardian Series" consumer hard drive lineup now includes "FireCuda," "IronWolf," and "SkyHawk" models. FireCuda drives are solid-state hard drives in 2.5" and 3.5" form factors. IronWolf drives feature some NAS-specific optimizations, and SkyHawk drives are targeted at surveillance systems. These drives should be on store shelves soon.
