WD Introduces New 3.5-Inch SAS XE Hard Drives


Western Digital today announced a new 3.5-inch SAS hard drive solution for legacy datacenter storage systems with the release of the WD XE, 2.5-inch, 10,000 RPM SAS hard drive, now available mounted in a 3.5-inch WD performance adapter.

Shipping immediately, the WD XE hard drives provide performance, low power consumption, and an easier upgrade path for existing 3.5-inch storage systems.

While demand for 3.5-inch, high-performance enterprise-class hard drives slows, a need remains for an alternate high-performance storage device as a transitional solution for legacy systems.

WD XE 2.5-inch SAS hard drives in 3.5-inch performance adapters feature 6 Gb/s transfer rates, a sequential data rate of 204 MB/s and very high random I/O performance.

The 3.5-inch SAS drive also delivers up to 67 percent lower power versus 3.5-inch 15,000 RPM drives, which can result in lower total cost of ownership (TCO) while increasing capacity and reliability.

The drive also features dual port, full duplex connectivity for high-availability datacenter systems along with WD's NoTouch ramp load technology, which dows not allow the recording head to touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear. LAst but not leeast, the drive is rated at 2 million hours MTBF.

The WD XE SAS enterprise hard drives in 3.5-inch performance adapters, shipping in capacities ranging from 300 GB to 900 GB, (models: WD3001HKHG, WD6001HKHG, and WD9001HKHG); are available now. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the WD XE hard drives in performance adapters range from $229.99 to $599.99 USD. WD XE drives are covered by a five-year limited warranty.
