Now you can create, manage and store more games, movies, music and media work files than ever before.

Creative professionals, small businesses and IT staff all have a need for large amounts of data to be delivered efficiently and protected properly. In light of the exponential rise in data creation, management and sharing through local, edge and cloud interactions across a host of industries, and the constant demand for higher productivity, this BarraCuda Pro 3.5-inch hard drive now with the highest-capacity options available continues to offer professionals an ideal storage solution for desktop workstations or direct attached storage (DAS) systems.

BarraCuda Pro 14TBHighest capacity, and top performance

BarraCuda Pro’s new 14TB capacity is unsurpassed — and so is BarraCuda’s performance. This is the newest, up-leveled version of the hard drive PC World’s Jon Jacobi called “the fastest, vastest currently available for storing and transferring large files. With a 5-year warranty and 2-years of data recovery, it’s also a reasonably safe investment.” Jacobi lauded the BarraCuda Pro’s industry-leading performance. “The thought of a hard drive transferring large amounts of data at 250MB per second was fantasy not so long ago. The BarraCuda Pro, he said, “does it, and in our testing, it did so consistently. If you have a lot of digital stuff, there’s no vaster or faster hard drive.”

With its massive new 14TB of storage, BarraCuda Pro is the fastest 3.5-inch hard drive available with industry-leading 7200 RPM spin speed and 250mb/s data transfer rates. Large cache size pushes your PC to new performance heights so you can load applications and files even faster; BarraCuda Pro offers up to 256MB of cache, the highest available today. And all hard drives in the BarraCuda family come equipped with Seagate’s Multi-Tier Caching Technology (MTC), which ensures optimized read and write data flow for effortless performance even in the highest-capacity drives.

BarraCuda Pro is an excellent fit for creative professional systems, performance PCs, home servers and multi-bay direct-attached storage solutions. Creative professionals, gamers and businesses choose its industry-leading capacity and performance whether editing massive video, keeping huge game and media libraries, or making sure large amounts of data are delivered efficiently and protected properly.

Optimized for creative professionals

Designed and tuned for data-intensive creative applications, these drives feature higher random performance and reliability than typical PC compute drives.

When you’re a creative, there’s no separation between who you are as a person, and the work you do as a creative professional. You are your work, and your work is you. And today more than ever, you know that easily managing and controlling your work — an enormous amount of data — is central to staying creative and productive.

Creative projects today generate massive amounts of data, and creatives need to manage it all through the process from start to finish: capturing your media, ingesting the digital data, editing multiple layers and takes, and delivering your final project. As you can imagine, capacity is very important. As an example, an URSA Mini Pro 4.6K camera generates over a Terabyte of data for every 20 minutes of video capture. When you’re running around on set during a typically intense film production schedule, you may shoot for 12 to 18 hours a day — consider: how would you manage the enormous amount of digital material from just one day of video shooting?

Speed is also incredibly important — Adobe Premiere can natively support 8K footage, and accessing, managing and editing it means it’s crucial that your system will keep up with that high volume of data.

What are the most critical demands on a creator’s workflow?

With the continuing revolution in data and its impact on how art and entertainment are created and consumed, what are your most pressing concerns as a Creative Professional today?

Whether you’re designing a new video game’s characters, generating and rendering complex worlds, capturing drone video for VR experiences, editing 8K video for a commercial client, or shooting and manipulating photos for magazines or wedding clients, the creative industry moves fast.

The BarraCuda Pro gives power users speed, versatility and durability at an affordable cost. So BarraCuda Pro is a creative professional’s and tech enthusiast’s dream. Plus the BarraCuda Pro is backed by a best-in-class, 5-year limited warranty and 2 years of Rescue Data Recovery Service Plans for your peace of mind.
