Designed for heavy application workloads
Designed to handle up to 550 TB per year in any heavy application datacenter with the highest workload capabilities of any WD 3.5 hard drive. Up to 6 Gb/s transfer rates and sustained sequential data rates of up to 182 MB/s, deliver performance and reliability to any datacenter environment.
Designed for quality and reliability
With up to 1.4 million hour MTBF, this high performance drive delivers durability and the highest level of reliability for 24x7x365 operation in the most demanding storage environments.
Enhanced RAFF™ technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.
In addition to being RoHS compliant, these drives are built with halogen reduced components.
Multi-axis shock sensor
Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)
Prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
NoTouch™ ramp load technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
Thermal extended burn-in test
Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
Dynamic fly height technology
Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.
Twice the processing power to maximize performance.
