Seagate stuffs 3TB drives in BlackArmor NAS box

Posted in Seagate by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2010

Seems like just yesterday that an entire network attached storage box held just 3TB all told, but now Seagate boasts that capacity with a single five-platter drive, and so the NAS are getting larger as well. Seagate has added its 3TB drive to the 2- and 4-slot BlackArmor NAS boxes, taking capacity up to 12TB.

Both systems will come pre-populated with 3TB drives in each bay. The BlackArmor NAS 440 is configured with RAID 5 and ships with 10 backup software licenses right out-of-the-box, while the NAS 220 ships with RAID 1 configuration for automatic data mirroring and five backup software licenses.


3TB drives coming soon

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2009

3TB drives coming soonIf you’ve been wondering when we might see 3TB drives arriving, the answer is soon. At least according to Dr Geoff Barrall, founder and CEO of Drobo. He says that Drobos will be offering a 3TB drive by April 2010. Drobo uses Western Digital drives, so there’s a good chance that it could mean that Western Digital will be outing some 3TB drives of their own very soon.

Currently Western Digital offers a 2TB Caviar Black 3.5-inch SATA drive. A 3TB, 4-platter drive would need 750GB per platter – a 50 per cent increase over what the Caviar Black has.
