Need a lot of NAS storage? Seagate just launched the 24TB IronWolf Pro HDD

The one thing I can’t get enough of is NAS HDDs; I have over 250TB of storage across three home servers, and while there’s plenty of storage available at the moment, I’ll eventually need more drives. Thankfully, Seagate is catering to that particular requirement with the introduction of 24TB IronWolf Pro drives. Like the rest of the series, the 24TB IronWolf drive is designed to be used 24/7 within a NAS enclosure, and it uses vibration sensors along with Seagate’s custom AgileArray suite to ensure long-term reliability.

I used various configurations of IronWolf Pro drives over the years, and the current set of drives in use ticked over the 30,000-hour mark at the end of last year, and they’re still going strong. The 24TB IronWolf Pro is based on the SATA 6Gb/s, and like the higher-end models in the series, it uses a helium-filled design that reduces drive friction over long-term use. The drive spins at 7,200rpm, goes up to 285MB/s during sustained transfers, and has a 512MB cache.
