The Seagate IronWolf 12TB hard disk is one of the high load internal HDDs for NAS and ordinary data centres. 3.5" HDDs are made chiefly for desktop PCs and data centres. One of the key characteristics is clearly the rotational frequency (RPM). 7200 RPM provides faster data transmission. The total capacity of the hard drive is 12000 GB. The device uses a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect it to a PC or other devices using the SATA III interface.
Platter hard disks have a notably special construction. The enclosure conceals a mechanism with moving platters accompanied by hard disk heads that facilitate reading and writing of data. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but at the same time you get its amazing price/capacity ratio. The important parameter that determines the speed of a HDD is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). With the Seagate IronWolf 12TB, we have 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. It's a great model for more demanding users, such as graphic or video editors - in short, people who work with large amounts of data. Data transmission and stability is also significantly affected by the disk buffer - the so-called cache. The Seagate hard drive is equipped with a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their speedy reading.
If you want to install the Seagate IronWolf 12TB in your laptop or other device, you need a 3,5" slot. Data transfer happens using the SATA III interface with a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. This technology is one of the best HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the HDD are 101,8 × 146,9 × 26,1 mm.
