Seagate today released the next generation of three of its enterprise hard disk drive (HDD) lines. The new drives have capacities ranging from 1TB to 4TB. The various offerings are aimed at multiple markets, including near-line storage, archiving and cloud bulk-data storage.
The new Constellation ES.3, the sixth generation of Seagate’s 7200rpm, 3.5-in enterprise-class HDD, adds another terabyte of capacity at the high-end — 4TB versus 3TB in the predecessor model. As with the previous Constellation ES.2, the ES.3 comes with either a SAS or SATA (6Gbps) interface, and AES 256-bit or 128-bit encryption.
