WD Red 8TB

The WD Red 8TB hard disk ranks among the high load internal HDDs for 24/7 operation in data centres. 3.5" HDDs are made chiefly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the crucial characteristics is clearly the rotational speed of the HDD. 5400 RPM should satisfy most typical users. The total capacity of the hard drive is 8000 GB. The storage features a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect it to a PC or other devices through the SATA III interface.

WD Red 8TB Hard Drive Key Features

  • 256 MB memory cache for a speed boost
  • 3.5" HDDs are designed for desktop PCs and data centres
  • All the data communication takes place via the SATA III interface
  • Platter-based hard drives are more susceptible to physical damage, but they also deliver a better storage capacity for less money than SSDs
  • RAID technology support allows for improved data loss prevention
  • Improved data recording thanks to Advanced Format technology

WD Red 8TB Hard Disk Speed

The HDD boasts a unique design. The enclosure conceals a mechanism that utilises moving platters, complete with disk read/write heads. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but this weak point is well-compensated by an affordable price tag and high storage capacity. The key parameter that determines the speed of a HDD is RPM - the number of revolutions per minute. In case of the WD Red 8TB, you get 5400 RPM RPM. You can find these drives mainly in ordinary home computers, laptops, and other devices that do not require high performance. System responsivity and overall stability is also significantly affected by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital hard drive features a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their speedy reading.

Connecting the Hard Disk to Your PC

In order to mount the WD Red 8TB in the device of your choice, it requires a 3,5" slot. Data transfer is done through the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer options available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the hard drive are 101,6 × 147 × 25,4 mm.
