Invest in Gold Featuring up to ten times the workload capacity of desktop drives, WD Goldâ„¢ hard drives are designed from the ground up for enterprise-class reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance.
Vibration Protection Enhanced RAFFâ„¢ technology uses sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct linear and rotational vibrations in real time for improved performance versus WDâ€™s desktop drives in high-vibration environments.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) 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.
Dynamic fly height technology Each read-write headâ€™s fly height is adjusted in real time to ensure consistent performance for reduced errors and optimized reliability.
COMPATIBILITY TESTING 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.
Technical Specifications Durable storage with the reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance for enterprise-class applications.
