NO NEED FOR THE HARD SELL WITH THESE HARD DRIVES

8th January 2019

According to the International Data Corporation, the global datasphere will increase tenfold to 175 zettabytes by 2025.

Just get your head around that for a minute - that's 175 trillion gigabytes. That's a lot of data.
If you could put all of that onto Blu-ray discs you'd end up with a stack of discs that could get you to the moon — 23 times.

This data boom is partly due to today's environment where sensors are on all of the time. A self-driving car, for example, can create a whopping 3TB of data every hour.

It's almost inconceivable that it is only 15 years ago that the humble 1.4MB 3.5 inch Floppy was gracing our shelves.

Thankfully, we've come a long way since and so satisfying the need for mass storage - and the desire to access is 24/7 from all manner of devices - is becoming easier all the time.

When it comes to data storage, you'd be hard pushed to find to find a better manufacturer than multi-award winning Seagate, who have dominated the sector for four decades.

Seagate delivers world-class, precision-engineered internal and external data solutions for all uses, including adding massive capacity for gaming, whether on the Xbox, PlayStation or PC.

Here at Box we're delighted to be entering into an enhanced partnership with Seagate which will see us stock the brand's full range.

Here's just a short overview of what you can expect from the family of products:

BarraCuda Internal Hard Drives

The barracuda is a ray-finned fish known for its large size, fearsome appearance and ferocious behaviour. An apt name, then, for this range of ultra-thin, ultra-light desktop hard drives.

Perfect for laptop upgrades, these 7,200 RPM drives are available in capacities up to 1TB with data rates up to 160MB/s for fast file transfers. It's the sort of performance you would expect from an SSD.

FireCuda SSHD

The FireCuda SSHD is a range of hard drives ideal for the PC. Fast, big and durable, these hard drives allow you to work faster - and play faster.

Available from 500MB to 2TB, these beauties deliver speeds up to five-times faster than you'd expect from typical hard drives - and are backed by a five-year warranty.

IronWolf NAS Hard Drives

Need to store a lot of data and make it accessible to multiple users? A NAS storage device is the answer.

The Seagate IronWolf hard drives deliver incredible reliability, with Mean Time Between Failures of up to 2.5 million hours and capacities of up to 14TB.

With special Drive Health and Drive Recovery features, these hard drives are two-time winners of the European Hardware Association's Best Hard Drive award.

SkyHawk Surveillance Hard Drives

When it's surveillance storage you require, look no further than these hard drives. Supporting up to 64 HD cameras, these hard drives deliver zero dropped frames with ImagePerfect AI.

Don't drop your guard by dropping frames. Capture every moment and identify problems fast with SkyHawk.
