Hard disk WD Red is the world's first model, which was developed exclusively for NAS systems . The actual unit is tested to be useable in continuous operation (24x7) in the home or small business NAS with one to five positions (for larger systems NAS is better to use enterprise disks - enterprise). The basis is to 35% increase in MTBF statistical indicators (Mean time between failures), which indicates the mean time in hours, after which it is expected that the device will work flawlessly. WD Red is 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!
The advanced firmware provides for seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance in RAID and NAS environments. Unique algorithms in NASware performance tuning , optimizes the consumption of electrical energy and saves you money. Lower power consumption also reduces the heating disk, which leads to further increased reliability and durability. Intelligent error correction system prevents the drives from the RAID discarded due to too long recovery from errors. When unexpected power outages extra NASware ensure completion of the order prior to shutting down the drive.
Improved technology double ensure a balance significantly improves overall performance and reliability of disk. Hard drives that are not properly balanced, can in systems with multiple disks cause excessive vibration and noise, reduce disc life and reduce performance over time.
For proper functionality under Windows XP and older OS, we recommend WD Align utility.
