Maximizing enterprise storage with 4TB

Western Digital is further 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 through channel partners 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 a combination of enterprise-class features and 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.

Doug Pickford, senior director of business marketing for Western Digital’s enterprise business unit, said given the insatiable need for storage capacity across all market segments, WD is offering both SAS and SATA interfaces for the WD 4 TB RE hard drives to best support both private and public clouds. WD continues to pioneer the capacity-optimized 3.5-inch market segment, in particular, and the WD RE SAS and SATA 4 TB drives are designed, tested and optimized for enterprise storage and applications, enabling 33 per cent greater capacity than previously available drives and up to 2.4 PB of raw capacity in a single enterprise rack.

The price of a 4TB model is $479. Available through select distributors and resellers, the 3.5-inch WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives are covered by a five-year limited warranty.
