The WD Red Pro 12TB hard disk is one of the high load internal HDDs for NAS and ordinary data centres. 3.5" HDDs are designed chiefly for desktop PCs and data centres. One of the crucial parameters is undoubtedly the rotational speed of the HDD. 7200 RPM delivers better speeds when working with multimedia and data. You can look forward to a total data capacity of 12000 GB. The storage has a 256 MB memory cache. It communicates with a PC or other devices through the SATA III interface.
Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism with moving platters accompanied by disk read/write heads. These mechanical parts don't take shocks and impact well, but at the same time you get a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The key parameter that affects the speed of a platter hard disk is RPM - the number of revolutions per minute. In case of the WD Red Pro 12TB, you would get 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This is great news for people who demand more from their devices, such as graphic or video editors - in short, people who work with large amounts of data. Data transmission and overall stability is also affected the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Western Digital platter drive is equipped with a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their speedy reading.
If you want to mount the WD Red Pro 12TB in your computer or other device, it must be equipped with a 3,5" slot. Data transfer takes place via the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. The technology is one of the best HDD data transfer options available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the hard drive are 101,6 × 26,1 × 147 mm.
