Storage solutions provider Western Digital Corp. has announced the expansion of its WD Red and WD Red Pro NAS hard drives lineup with the introduction of 10TB capacity models.

Designed with Western Digital’s HelioSeal helium-technology, the WD Red 10TB hard drive provides higher capacity and performance to meet the increasing storage needs of always-on, single-to-8-bay NAS systems. The helium-based design enables a 25 percent capacity increase from the WD Red 8TB NAS storage drive. With support for up to 16 bays in tower- and rack-based systems, the WD Red Pro 10TB hard drive delivers the same high performance, reliability and capacity to systems operating in up to 16 bay NAS systems.

The WD Red and WD Red Pro 10TB hard drives also offer:

  • 3D Active Balance Plus, an enhanced balance control technology that improves overall drive performance and reliability.
  • Integration with Western Digital’s My Cloud Pro Series NAS and My Cloud Expert Series NAS systems to provide seamless transfer of content between devices in any location.
  • NASware 3.0, an enhanced version of WD’s original NASware technology, designed to improve reliability and system performance, reduce customer downtime and to simplify the integration process.
  • Optimized performance class – 5400 RPM class for SOHO environments and 7200 RPM class for up to 16 bay NAS systems.

The new WD Red and WD Red Pro 10TB hard drives, priced at $494.00 and $533.00 respectively, are now available.
