No matter what you need it for, Seagate can provide supersized storage for your needs. To lead with the most important information, the IronWolf and IronWolf Pro 14TB will run you $529.99 and $599.99 respectively, a 14TB BarraCuda Pro sits at $579.99, a SkyHawk14TB a mere $509.99 and the Exos X14 at $614.99. These prices might sound expensive until you think how much 14TB of NVMe storage will cost you.
The IronWolf and IronWolf Pro as designed to be used in a NAS, with firmware designed to provide reliability in a variety of arrays along with health management and recovery tools baked right in. The drives are rated at 300TB/year, with a 5 year warranty on the Pro and 3 years on the other.
The Barracuda Pro is one you are more likely to grab, the 7200 RPM HDD has 256MB Of cache which allows up to 250mb/s data transfer rates depending on the task you require of it. You will get a 5 year warranty to ensure you get your moneys worth out of the drive.
The Skyhawk is great for surveillance systems, the 14TB allows you to capture over 9000 hours of H.264 video with 1M pixels, medium quality, at 15FPS; with support for up to 64 attached cameras. It would also make a great drive for a DVR if you intended to record every single moment of TV you missed while on vacation. The 3 year warranty in part reflects the expectation you will be writing to this drive 24/7/
Last is the Exos X14, which you can order already installed into the chassis you see above, with up to a 1.4PB of storage. The helium-based design is not only for longevity, Seagate claims a 10% reduction in weight versus other drives.
