Hard drive WD Red Pro is based on the model of RED, which is the world's first model developed exclusively for NAS systems. The unit is tested to be useable in continuous operation (24x7) not only in the home or small business NAS with one to five positions, but in medium and large corporate storage systems with 8 to 16 positions. The basis of everything is up to 35% increase in the statistical indicators MTBF (mean time between failures) that indicates the median time in hours, after which it is expected that the equipment will work flawlessly. WD Red drives and Red Pro are simply more resilient and robust solution than what the standard desktop hard drives, yet is not significantly more expensive - precisely because it unhesitatingly recommend for your NAS!

WD Red NASware thanks to firmware 3.0 now supports small NAS systems with 1-8 positions and offers greater compatibility and reliability. Unique algorithms NASware tune performance, optimize energy consumption and thus saves your wallet. Lower power consumption also reduces heating of the disk, leading to a further increase in reliability and durability. The intelligent error correction prevents the drives from RAID discarded due to excessively long recovery from errors.
