Advanced drive technology that delivers consistent high performance in a multitude of applications, and with up to ten times the workload capability of desktop drives, the WD Re drive is the workhorse of WD’s datacenter portfolio. The WD Re drive is perfect for high availability storage arrays that demand a robust storage device, and this drive’s high performance, capacity, and reliability make it ideal for data warehousing/mining and high performance computing. The WD Re uses a SATA interface to provide maximum flexibility and compatibility. High capacity nearline drive - Massive capacities up to 6 TB suit even the most demanding datacenter, enterprise server, or cloud storage needs. Designed for high intensity applications - Designed to handle workloads up to 550 TB per year, among the highest workload capability of any 3.5-inch hard drive delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment. StableTrac - (FSYZ, FXYZ, & FYYZ models). The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations. Vibration Protection - Enhanced RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over desktop drives. 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. Multi-axis shock sensor - Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data. RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) - Reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error recovery processes common to desktop drives. Designed for quality and reliability - With 2.0 million hours MTBF, these drives ensure one of the highest level reliability ratings for high capacity enterprise storage needs. Thermal extended burn-in test - Each drive is put through extended burn in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation. 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. Dynamic fly height technology - Each read write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability. Power Loss Data Protection (5TB and above) - Upon power loss, the Re drive utilizes stored spindle energy to back up the HDD cache to onboard flash. This allows deeper write queues which boosts performance, while minimizing data loss/corruption such as write splices that can occur during unexpected power losses.
