Ultra-Reliable 6TB Drives for NAS, Cloud, Servers and RAID
6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1TB capacity options
Seagate® NAS HDDs are built and tested to provide industry-leading
performance for small NAS systems.
NASWorks™ technology supports customised error recovery controls,
power management and vibration tolerance for optimal performance and
reliability with workloads up to 180TB/year workload rating limit (WRL).
NAS error recovery controls optimise drive health by helping to ensure
drives are not dropped from the NAS and sent into a RAID rebuild.
Improved vibration tolerance and emission in multi-drive systems with dualplane balance.
Advanced power management supports multiple power profiles for lowpower, 24×7 performance.
Quiet drive operation enhances customer experience in living room or office
environments.
Optional 3-year Rescue recovery service plan protects against data loss
from viruses, software issues, or mechanical and electrical breakdowns in a
NAS or RAID environment.
