WD Releases 4 TB WD RE SAS, WD RE SATA Hard Drives

WD today announced it is expanding its enterprise-class storage offerings with the release of new WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives in capacities up to 4 TB.

Available immediately in 1 TB, 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB capacities for nearline SAS and 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB for SATA, the 3.5-inch WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives offer the combination of enterprise-class features and high capacity to meet the demands of conventional business-critical environments as well as the high-capacity and performance requirements of cloud and scale-out computing.

"With the new 4 TB 7,200 hard disk drives from WD, the Dell PowerVault MD3 Array series will offer customers more storage capacity than ever before, " said Brett Roscoe, general manager and executive director, PowerVault and data management solutions, Dell Storage. "The new 4 TB HDDs on our recently announced MD3 Dense arrays will allow our customers to store even more data in a compact form factor, with up to 240 TB of data storage in a single dense array and up to a maximum of 720 TB utilizing a single MD3 Dense array and two 60 disk MD3 expansion enclosures."

Features of the new WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives include:

- Dual port, full duplex connectivity
- 1.4M hours MTBF / 1.2M hours MTBF
- RoHS compliant
- NoTouch ramp load technology: Recording heads never touch the disk media ensuring less wear to recording heads and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
- Dual Stage Actuation (DSA) and Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF): Best in class operation and performance when drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.
- Designed for maximum capacity enterprise storage solutions, such as scale out, cloud storage, RAID arrays, and NAS; a massive 2.4 PB of available storage (with 10 4U, 60 bay enclosures).
- 5-disk platform, 800 GB per platter, SAS-interface, 6 Gb/sec transfer rates built for high performance 24x7.
