Western Digital Red Pro 3.5" 16000 GB Serial ATA

For the Demands of Big Business

Designed specifically with medium or large scale business customers in mind, WD RedTM Pro drives are available for up to 24-bay NAS systems. Engineered to handle high-intensity workloads in 24x7 environments, WD Red Pro is ideal for archiving and sharing, as well as RAID array rebuilding on extended operating systems such as ZFS or other file systems. These drives add value to your business by enabling your employ-ees to quickly share their files and back-up folders reliably in your NAS solution.

Exclusive NASware™ 3.0 Technology

Our exclusive advanced firmware technology, NASware™ 3.0, enables seamless inte-gration, robust data protection and optimal performance for NAS systems operating under heavy demand. Built into every WD Red Pro hard drive, NASware 3.0’s advanced technology improves storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability.

Built for Optimum NAS Compatibility

WD Red Pro drives with NASware technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. Optimized for NAS systems, our unique algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put, a WD Red Pro drive is one of the most compatible drives available for NAS enclosures. But don’t take our word for it. WD Red Pro drives are a reflection of extensive NAS partner technology engagement and compatibility-testing.

Larger NAS Bay Shock Protection

WD Red Pro drives are equipped with a multi-axis shock sensor that automatically detects subtle shock events and dynamic fly height technology which adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data. This combination of technol-ogy further protects the drives in larger 24-bay NAS environments and helps increase hard drive reliability.

3D Active Balance Plus

Our enhanced dual-plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.

Error Recovery Prevention

Built specifically for RAID and NAS environments, WD Red Pro drives come equipped with error recovery controls as part of NASware 3.0 technology to help reduce drive fallout in RAID applications.

Extended Drive Testing

A NAS environment that has up to 24 bays is very demanding on a hard drive with add-ed vibration and heat. This is why every WD Red Pro drive is shipped with extended thermal cycle burn-in testing to help ensure each drive is tested for extended reliable operation.

Longer Warranty Coverage

WD Red Pro drives comes with a 5-year limited warranty for an even greater peace of mind.
