The Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB hard disk ranks among the high load internal HDDs for NAS storage solutions. The 3.5" format is made chiefly for desktop computers and data centres. One of the main parameters is clearly the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). 7200 RPM delivers better system response across the board. The total capacity of the hard drive is 12000 GB. The drive has a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect it to a PC or other devices through the SATA III interface.
Platter HDDs have a special construction. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism that utilises moving platters, complete with hard disk heads that read and write the data. These moving parts are not particularly resistant against shock or impact, but this weak point is well-compensated by a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The crucial criterion that determines the speed of a HDD is the number of platter revolutions per minute, generally known as RPM. With the Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB, you can look forward to 7200 RPM RPM. This should delight the 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 affected by the disk buffer - the so-called cache. The Seagate HDD features a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their fast retrieval and reading.
In order to mount the Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB in your laptop or other device, it must have a 3,5" slot. The communication between the HDD and PC takes place through the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The hard drive dimensions are 101,85 × 26,11 × 146,99 mm.
