Seagate has a full line of storage devices that run the gamut for external to internal consumer and internal enterprise HDDs. The company has announced a new HDD aimed at enterprise use that it claims to be the industry's first 2TB 6Gb/s SAS drive.

The drive is a 3.5-inch form factor and fits in that Constellation ES family. It spins at 7,200 RPM and is also offered in 500GB and 1TB capacities. The new 2TB drive allows the family to support up to 76TB of storage per square foot. Pricing for the new drive is unknown.

“Nearline is the fastest growing segment in enterprise storage and Seagate is committed to meeting the market demands of its OEM and system integrator partners in this space,” said Carla Kennedy, vice president, Seagate Enterprise Product Line Management. “Seagate’s leadership in technology development, volume manufacturing and supply chain execution has resulted in an exemplary next-generation nearline solution. The Constellation™ ES drive tackles the concerns of shrinking IT budgets, floor space constraints and energy consumption, efficiently and cost-effectively.”
