The WD Ae hard drive delivers cost effective, high capacity disk layer storage for cold data archive systems. These drives are built with features that address the unique requirements of cold data archiving, including WD’s innovative Progressive Capacity, an energy efficient design, long life cycle TCO and competitive dollars per gigabyte. Energy efficient - Reduced media spin lowers power consumption and optimizes the drive’s read/write ratio for the rigid requirements of cold storage systems. Proven cold storage reliability - With 700 PBs of cold storage deployed in datacenters already, WD’s 4th generation WD Ae drive utilizes innovative technology to reduce power consumption and lower operating temperature, which results in a more reliable and affordable solution for cold storage data archives. Cost effective capacity storage - Moving cold data to value optimized archive media delivers significant TCO savings by freeing up expensive performance critical storage system capacity. Progressive Capacity - As technology and manufacturing processes mature, incremental capacity increases are realized. WD’s innovative Progressive Capacity model allows distribution of these incrementally higher capacity models, taking advantage of their full capacity. With the goal of lowering cost per TB, Progressive Capacity provides a creative way to enhance capacities on a qualified platform. The benefits from a storage point of view are greater capacity per drive which translates to cost efficiency per TB. Progressive Capacity also makes it possible to lower the number of drives required for the overall installation as it allows more capacity per cabinet/floor tile, thus reducing infrastructure utilization. For systems that are not yet tuned for Progressive Capacity, WD also offers a fixed capacity model. Cold data power management - Competitive power management, reduced heat output, and next generation technologies such as IntelliSeek combine to deliver a balance of performance and power perfect for cold data archive storage architectures. Quick to ready - Access time to cold data is quickly becoming a critical feature of an on line archive system and end users can’t wait hours or days for this data to become available. The spin down capability of the WD Ae drive provides much faster access times than conventional archive tape with data access times of less than 20 seconds for on demand data requests. 3D Active Balance Plus - Our enhanced dual plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time. NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit. Dual actuator technology - A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy. 24x7 dedicated customer support - Every WD Ae hard drive comes with our world class professional support services including a dedicated 24x7 support line (available in English, other regional support hours vary) and a 3-year limited warranty.
