New Western Digital 500 GB HDDS Delivers 1.2 Million Hours MTBF


Western Digital announced on Thusday it is now shipping its WD RE2 (RAID Edition) 500 GB SATA hard drives, rated at 1.2 million hours MTBF (mean time between failure) in high duty cycle environments.

With 3.0 Gb/s data transfer rate, WD RE2 hard drives feature Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and 16 MB cache for improved performance in multi-user, random I/O environments. WD RE2 hard drives are designed for network attached storage, direct attached server storage and video surveillance environments that require 100 percent duty cycle and carry a 5-year limited warranty.

The WD RE2 drives are reliability-rated at 1.2 million hours MTBF (mean time between failure) in high duty cycle environments.



Pioneered by WD, Time Limited Error Recovery (TLER) maximizes WD RE2 500 GB reliability by reducing drive fallout from extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives. WD RE2 hard drives also employ RAFF (Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward) technology to provide vibration tolerance by optimizing operation and performance when the drives are used in servers and storage arrays where rotational vibration robs performance.

WD RE2 500 GB (model WD5000YS) hard drives are currently shipping in volume. Estimated pricing for WD RE2 500 GB is $349.99 USD.
