Wd Delivers Power-Efficient High-Capacity 3.5-Inch HDD for Modern Datacenters

WD introduced new datacenter hard drives that deliver to today's modern datacenter architects the lowest power consumption of any high-capacity 3.5-inch hard drive available. The WD Re+ hard drive family is the newest component of WD's full, tiered portfolio of high-capacity datacenter storage devices. Further expanding that portfolio will be 6 terabyte (TB) capacities for WD's popular WD Re and WD Se datacenter product lines, providing customers a spectrum of capabilities, tiered to their varied demands of application intensity, power optimization and cost efficiency. In the modern datacenter, the total cost of ownership (TCO) formula is comprised of capacity, price, power consumption and the relationships between these variables. The WD Re+ drive provides the most power efficient and high-intensity high-capacity platform available. With power consumption a primary consideration in today's large web-scale cloud infrastructures, and the WD Re+ drive consuming only 6 watts for 6 TB, customers' TCOs increase and savings for large deployments could be millions of dollars per year.
