Western Digital, one of the top hard drive manufacturers in the world, announced end of last month the release of its new line of enterprise-class storage offerings, perfect for all business applications from local servers to FOREX trading.
Available via their online store, the new line of 3.5-inch nearline hard drives include 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB WD RE SATA drives, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB WD RE SAS drives. The 4TB versions are said to hold the record for having the highest available capacity for commercial hard drives right now, which Fujitsu laid claim to earlier this year.
According to Western Digital, features of the new WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives include dual port, full duplex connectivity, earth-friendly halogen reduced components, their patented NoTouch™ ramp load technology, Dual Stage Actuation (DSA) and Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF™), and the highest possible reliability and performance.
Price for the new WD RE SATA drives range from $229 (2TB 6GB/s) to $459 (4TB 6GB/s). Prices for the new WD RE SAS hard drives range from $139 (1TB) to $479 (4TB).
