We’ve written up comprehensive guides on Western Digital Red, Red Plus, and Red Pro as well as Seagate IronWolf vs. IronWolf Pro. These should aid you in better understanding the differences between the family of drives. 1. Seagate Ironwolf Pro: Best overall NAS hard drive Seagate IronWolf Pro. (Source: Seagate) We’ll be using the IronWolf daily for the near future and we’ll let you know if there are any problems, or not. We don’t expect any. Performance As far as CrystalDiskMark 5 is concerned, the IronWolf and BarraCuda Pro might as well be the same drive. We’d always recommend against using normal hard drives inside a NAS because they’re not designed for continuous use and don’t come with some of the features specially designed for servers. Seagate, Western Digital, Toshiba, and other brands have a collection of NAS-focused hard drives. Western Digital and Seagate are the two giants for storage, and both companies offer an almost identical offering specifically designed with servers in mind. This makes it easy to select the right drive(s) for your NAS. You can even equip one with an SSD if you're looking for something a little faster.

Best NAS hard drives 2023: Seagate, Western Digital, and more

Maak een einde aan de kosten en complexiteit van het opslaan, verplaatsen en activeren van gegevens op schaal. IronWolf is designed for NAS enclosures with less wear and tear, little to no noise/vibration, no lag or downtime, improved file sharing performance, and more. We tested the IronWolf 12TB using both the AS SSD and CrystalDiskMark synthetic benchmarks. To verify the results, we followed up with real-world copying of a single large 20GB file and a 20GB mix of smaller files and folders to and from the platters.

Western Digital's Red Pro range of drives is specifically designed for use with network storage. With support for up to a 300TB per year workload rate, these drives are reliable and capable with 7200 PRM motors. Other handy features you'd also find in Seagate's IronWolf Pro range include error recovery and anti-vibration tech. In the above part, we show you how to clone the system free with MiniTool ShadowMaker. In addition to MiniTool ShadowMaker, MiniTool Partition Wizard is also a great tool to clone a hard drive. Here is how to clone the system with MiniTool Partition Wizard. Our thoughts: We’re recommending the Seagate IronWolf Pro, not because it’s outright better than the Western Digital Red Pro, but because the drive with the least capacity has better specs. This makes it great to get into the pro range of drives without spending too much.

Key Advantages - Seagate

Much like Seagate, WD has been making storage solutions for PCs for many years, and it offers reliable drives for any NAS. As with the Seagate drives, I recommend at least 4TB. WD's Red Plus hard drives are manufactured for NAS use and can be deployed in systems that support up to eight bays. IronWolf internal hard drives are the ideal solution for up to 24-bay, multi-user NAS server environments requiring powerful performance. Note that we did not spot any statistically relevant difference in the seek times between the BarraCuda Pro and the IronWolf. Capacity caveats

About The Author

The Seagate IronWolf Pro range of NAS hard drives offers capacities between 4TB and 20TB. They are capable of being installed in a configuration of up to 24 bays. With a workload rate of 300TB per year and a warranty of five years, you’ll be able to rely on them for long-term storage of data. To clone OS to the new hard drive, MiniTool ShadowMaker is competent with the Clone Disk feature. And now, we will show you how to migrate the operating system to the IronWolf or IronWolf Pro with MiniTool ShadowMaker. There’s something about 12TB hard drives reading and writing at 250MBps that we just can’t get enough of. This go-round, we review Seagate’sIronWolf–the slightly slower, slightly lower-rent cousin to the mighty 12GB Seagate BarraCuda Prowe recently took for a spin. Game of Thronesmoniker aside, the IronWolf is still easily fast and enough, and should be reliable enough to make sense in the multi-drive setups for which it’s intended. While we’re talking about mechanical drives here, these things aren’t necessarily slow (aside from when compared to an SSD). The 4TB Seagate IronWolf Pro is capable of hitting up to 214MB/s, which is enough to saturate the two 1Gb network connections frequently found on prebuilt NAS enclosures.

Seagate IronWolf 12TB review: A hard drive made for NAS that

The unit draws 7.8 watts—a relatively small amount of juice for a hard drive. For some reason, the 8TB version draws another watt, while the 10TB draws the same, and the 4TB and 6TB versions draw less. Seagate Western Digital’s Red Pro series of NAS hard drives are designed for more serious storage requirements. They offer the same 300TB per year workload rating as Seagate IronWolf Pro drives, can work with up to 24 bays, and also come with a long-lasting five-year warranty. The IronWolf’s write performance in AS SSD was 40MBps slower than the BarraCuda 10TB, but we’re still trying to understand the BarraCuda 12TB’s sudden drop in write speed. Take these numbers with a grain of salt. they’re not quite as fast as Seagate IronWolf Pro drives, nor will you be able to use them in a configuration of more than eight drives, but they’ll be perfect for home and office use. A three-year warranty and 180TB per year workload rating shows just how capable these drives are.Please note that the 1TB through 4TB IronWolf drives spin at 5,900 rpm rather than the 7,200 that the larger capacity drives spin at. And only the 4TB drives and above sense and compensate the head assembly for vibrational factors. Also, the 4TB and larger drives feature Seagate’s IHM (IronWolf Health Management), which interfaces with NAS boxes from Synology, Thecus, and AsusStor (with more vendors on the way) to provide extensive monitoring of the IronWolf’s vital signs. the 1TB and 2TB models do not. Easily monitor NAS drive health with the integrated IronWolf health management system and enjoy long-term reliability with a 1.2 million hour MTBF. Buying the right 3.5-inch drive for your NAS is crucial since you’re going to rely on it to safely store all your data. You can’t simply use any old drive off the shelf, which is why we’ve compiled a list of only the best NAS hard drives for use inside enclosures. We didn’t test the lower-capacity 1TB through 10TB IronWolf drives, but Seagate’s performance claims decrease progressively with each drop in capacity. On the other hand, the company lists only 210MBps for the 12TB model we tested, not the 250MBps we saw. You might see better-than-claimed performance with the other capacities as well, depending on your computer. Seagate If you have gotten the IronWolf or IronWolf Pro, you may want to transfer your system to the new hard drive. To migrate the system and files from an original hard drive to IronWolf or IronWolf Pro without data loss, the clone tool is required. So, the professional SSD cloning software – MiniTool ShadowMaker is strongly recommended.

When selecting a NAS drive, the capacity is an important factor. Thus, this part is about IronWolf vs IronWolf Pro for capacity. MiniTool OEM program enable partners like hardware / software vendors and relative technical service providers to embed MiniTool software with their own products to add value to their products or services and expand their market. The IronWolf 12TB was only slightly slower than its Barracuda cousin in our copy tests. The ES.2 shows the kind of slow sustained performance many users are used to.Engineered for reduced wear and tear, virtually no noise/vibration, no lag or downtime, improved file sharing performance, lower power consumption, and additional data protection – even in the event of a power outage.
