Featuring up to ten times the workload capacity of desktop drives, WD Gold hard drives are designed from the ground up for enterprise-class reliability, capacity, ...
... power efficiency and performance. Delivering dependable performance to
any storage environment, WD Gold hard drives are designed with a workload
rating up to 550TB per year, among the highest of any 3.5-inch hard drive.
With up to 2.5 million hours MTBF, WD Gold hard drives deliver reliability
and durability, are built for yearly operation (24x7x365) within the most
demanding storage environments, and are backed with a 5 year limited
warranty. Featured in over 15 million Western Digital hard drives shipped,
HelioSeal technology allows for higher capacities and less turbulence on
large storage arrays. And now on its 4th generation design, HelioSeal
technology is field-tested and proven to deliver high capacity,
reliability, and power efficiency you can trust. Enhanced RAFF technology
uses sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct linear and
rotational vibrations in real time for improved performance versus WD's
desktop drives in high-vibration environments. Time-limited error recovery
helps to reduce drive fallout within a storage environment caused by the
extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time to ensure
consistent performance for reduced errors and optimized reliability. All
WD Gold hard drives are extensively tested across a variety of popular OEM
storage systems, SATA controllers, and host bus adapters, to ensure ease
of integration for a plug and play solution.
