The WD Red Plus 14TB hard drive belongs among the high load internal HDDs for NAS storage solutions. The 3.5" format is designed primarily for desktop PCs and data centres. One of the main characteristics is obviously the rotational speed (RPM). The 7200 RPM RPM delivers improved performance and data speeds. The total capacity of the hard drive is 14000 GB. The storage uses a 512 MB memory cache. The data transfer between the Western Digital hard disk and a computer or other device takes place via the SATA III interface.
The HDD boasts a unique design. The enclosure conceals a mechanism that utilises moving platters accompanied by hard disk heads that facilitate reading and writing of data. These mechanical parts don't take shocks and impact well, but on the upside, this design also delivers a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The key parameter that affects the speed of a hard drive is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). In case of the WD Red Plus 14TB, you would get 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. It's a great model for more demanding users, for example video editors, graphic artists, people who play PC games, and everybody else who deal with large amounts of data. File access speed and stability is also determined by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital hard drive is equipped with a 512 MB cache that stores the last used data for their fast retrieval and reading.
If you want to mount the WD Red Plus 14TB in your computer or other device, it must have a 3.5" slot. All data transfer is done through the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s.
