Product Information

WD RED PRO - 8TB NAS HDD

The 8TB WD RED PRO is an excellent HDD that offers you unbelievable performance for your NAS system, thanks to its easy to install 3.5inch form factor this is just 26.1mm high. The drive has a rotation speed of 7200rpm, the technical highlight of the RED PRO HDD’s is that they run the latest SATA III interface which runs at 6Gb/s. The storage capacity of this drive is a massive 8TB that uses a huge 128MB cache.

NETWORK IT IN RED

WD RED PRO is continuing the formula of success and joining the original colour of NAS. WD RED goes beyond consumer, SOHO, and small business markets and into the larger up to 16 bay business storage systems. Available in up to 8TB drives the WD RED family just got bigger.

PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS

The RED PRO 8TB is designed with SMB customers in mind, this drive is perfect for use in 16 bay medium or large-scale NAS environments. With capacities of up to 8TB which enables you to have a maximum capacity of 128TB. WD RED PRO was engineered to handle the increased workloads that come from a larger business.

NASWARE GROWS TO 3.0

Increase the efficiency and productivity of your business with WD RED PRO hard drives for up to 16 bay NAS system. WD RED PRO comes equipped with NASware 3.0, which increases system compatibility allowing for seamless integration with your existing network infrastructure. Add value to your business by enabling your employees to quickly share their files and back up folders reliably with WD RED PRO hard drives in your NAS solution.

SHOCK PROTECTION

WD RED PRO is equipped with a multi- axis shock sensor that automatically detects subtle shock events and dynamic fly height technology which adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data. This combination of technology further protects the drives in large 1 to 16 bay NAS environments and increases drive reliability.

NAS COMPATIBILITY

Advanced firmware technology built into every WD RED PRO drive, NASware 3.0 enables seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance for systems operating in NAS and RAID.

ENHANCED ACCURACY FOR NAS

For enhanced accuracy for NAS, WD RED PRO is equipped with dual actuator technology which improves positional accuracy over the data tracks and head positioning. StableTrac technology then secures the motor shaft at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize the drive platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations.

EXTENDED DRIVE TESTING

A NAS environment that has up to 16 bays is very demanding on a hard drive with added vibration, heat and other factors. This is why every WD RED PRO drive is shipped with extended thermal cycle burn-in testing which ensure each drive for extended reliable operation.

LONGER WARRANTY COVERAGE

Complementing WD RED at a 3-year limited warranty, WD RED PRO offers longer warranty coverage with a 5-year limited warranty for an even greater peace of mind.

VIBRATION PROTECTION

In combination with 3D Active Balance Plus, WD RED PRO also features hardware vibration compensation technology which monitors the drive to correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time, further increasing drive reliability.
