The Seagate IronWolf 16TB hard disk ranks among the high load internal HDDs compatible with NAS data storage solutions. The 3.5" format is made chiefly for desktop PCs, data centres, and other data-processing devices. One of the key parameters is undoubtedly the rotational speed. 7200 RPM delivers faster data transmission. The total capacity of the hard drive is 16000 GB. The storage uses a 256 MB memory cache. The data transfer is facilitated using the SATA III interface.
The HDD boasts a unique design. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism that utilises moving platters, complete with hard disk heads that read and write the data. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but at the same time you get an excellent price/storage capacity ratio. The key parameter that determines the speed of a hard disk is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). In case of the Seagate IronWolf 16TB, you get 7200 RPM RPM. This is ideal for demanding users, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data. Data transmission and overall stability is also significantly affected the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Seagate platter 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 16TB in your computer or other device, it must be equipped with a 3,5" slot. Data sharing is done 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 speed of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the hard drive are 10,19 × 14,7 × 2,61 mm.
