These drives are having the "ES" moniker that stands for "Enterprise 
Storage" - from Seagate's site:  "Barracuda ES and ES.2 enterprise 
drives are designed for RAID and nearline applications where high 
capacity, high reliability, low power consumption and tolerance to 
rotational vibration (RV) are primary requirements."
