WD RedTM drives are a reflection of extensive NAS partner technology engagement and compatibility-testing resulting in a leading compatibility list for NAS systems.
Desktop drives vs. WD RedTM
In a Network Attached Storage device, a desktop hard drive is not typically designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose the drive designed for NAS with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
• Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, optimum performance is not guaranteed.
• Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one. And desktop drives aren’t typically designed and tested under those conditions. WD RedTM drives are.
• Error recovery controls: WD RedTM NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments.
• Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives typically offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration present in a multi-drive system. WD RedTM drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems.
WD Red for Home
Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD RedTM drives designed to effortlessly share content with the devices in your home. NASware 3.0 technology increases your drives compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo, and more. Live in a connected world.
WD Red for Small Business
Businesses thrive on productivity and efficiency – two of the guiding principles built into the design of WD RedTM drives. It’s the hard drive of choice for 1 to 8 bay systems. NASware 3.0 technology allows for seamless integration with your existing network so WD RedTM can share and backup files at the speed of your business. And for larger businesses with up to 16 bays, count on WD Red ProTM drives.
3D Active Balance Plus
Helps ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control reduces the degradation of your drive over time.
