WD Red 6TB

Pevný disk WD Red

The WD Red is the world's first model designed exclusively for NAS systems. The drive is rigorously tested to ensure smooth continuous operation on home or small enterprise NAS systems with one to five bays (it is preferable to use an enterprise drive for larger NAS systems). The WD Red's MTBF is increased by 35%. The MTBF value indicates the median time in hours during which the equipment is expected to work flawlessly. The drive is more robust and durable than standard desktop hard drives without being much more expensive, which makes it an excellent choice for your NAS!

NASware 3.0 secret in technology

This advanced firmware ensures seamless integration, outstanding data protection, and optimal performance in NAS and RAID environments. Unique algorithms in NASware tune performance and optimise energy efficiency to save on your energy bill. Lower power consumption reduces heat generation, resulting in increased reliability and durability. An intelligent error recovery system prevents hard drives from being dropped off the RAID due to extended error recovery. To further improve reliability, NASware minimizes the data corruption or loss in the event of an unexpected power loss by completing the command in process before shutting down.

3D Active Balance Plus

Why choose the WD Red?

  • Specific NAS needs: Desktop drives aren’t typically tested or designed for the rigours of a NAS system. Do right by your NAS and choose the drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance.
  • Compatibility: WD Red drives with NASware 3.0 technology are purpose-built to balance performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments.
  • Reliability: Desktop hard drives can't continuously work at high temperatures.
  • Error recovery system: Desktop hard drives are not designed to be used in RAID environments. They include drivers preventing RAID drivers from dealing with errors, which may result in RAID failure. Subsequent RAID reconstruction is demanding and time-consuming.
  • Noise and vibrations: Desktop hard drives are not optimised to minimize noise and vibrations. They reduce your comfort and NAS systems' reliability and durability.

For proper operation on Windows XP computers and earlier, we recommend downloading WD Align utility.
