Data storage company, Seagate, is expanding its product portfolio in Australia with a host of new products, including wireless storage solutions.
It’s taken the wraps off a range of new retail offerings that include Seagate Seven, Seagate Wireless, Seagate Personal Cloud and Personal Cloud 2-Bay, as well as two new drives from Seagate’s premium brand – LaCie Mirror and LaCie Rugged RAID.
Seagate Wireless is the newest addition. The 500GB portable wireless drive is designed to stream HD videos on mobile devices and enable users to offload media to preserve storage space on their smartphones and tablets. It comes in a range of vibrant colours — lime green, cool blue, slate grey, fire-engine red and white.
Seagate Seven is an ultra slim external drive which measures 7mm and holds up to 500GB of data.
The Seagate Personal Cloud and Seagate Personal Cloud 2-Bay home storage devices enable users to easily stream content to smartphones, set-top boxes, PCs or television via the Seagate Media app, or pair with the Seagate Mobile Backup app and Seagate Dashboard to serve as a central backup for all devices.
For added security, the Personal Cloud 2-bay is designed with two internal drives to automatically duplicate all content stored on one drive to a secondary drive.
In addition, it’s introduced the LaCie Mirror, a 1TB portable hard drive wholly encased in scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. LaCie’s Rugged RAID is the latest addition to its line of tough mobile hard drives, and features 4TB of capacity with shock, dust and water resistance.
The products will be priced as follows: $189 for the Seagate Seven (500GB); $189 for the Seagate Wireless (500GB); from $299 for the Seagate Personal Cloud (3TB); from $619 for the Personal Cloud 2-Bay (4TB); and $429 for the LaCie Mirror (1TB storage capacity). However, pricing for the LaCie Rugged RAID is yet to be made available.
Seagate Seven, Seagate Wireless, Personal Cloud and LaCie Mirror are available in Australia from JB HI-FI and other major retailers.Read more: Nimble Storage takes aim at rivals in 2015
