WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Disk Drive
WD Red is the only hard drive designed for NAS systems that have 1-5 drive bays. Available in captivities ranging from 1 TB to 6 TB, WD Red is designed specifically for home and small office NAS systems. The drives are extensively tested for compatibility and reliability in the demanding operating environment of a 24×7 NAS system. WD’s exclusive NASware firmware technology enables seamless integration and balanced performance. Innovative technology reduces power consumption and lowers the operating temperature, and with a 35% improvement in MTBF over desktop drives, WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Disk Drive is a more reliable and robust NAS hard drive solution.
- Compatibility: Unlike desktop drives, these drives are tested for compatibility and optimum performance.
- Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one, and desktop drives aren’t typically designed and tested under those conditions like WD Red™ is.
- Error recovery controls: WD Red™ NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system.
- Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives typically offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration present in a multi-drive system. WD Red™ drives are designed to thrive in multi-bay NAS system environments.
- Stream, backup, share and organize your digital content with a NAS and WD Red™ Plus drives designed to effortlessly share content with the devices at your home or business. NASware™ 3.0 technology increases your drives’ compatibility with your existing network and devices. For larger businesses with up to 24 bays, count on WD Red™ Pro drives to deliver exceptional performance.
