The WD Red Plus 8TB hard disk is one of the high load internal HDDs compatible with NAS data storage solutions. 3.5" HDDs are designed primarily for desktop PCs, data centres, and other data-processing devices. One of the crucial characteristics is obviously the rotational speed. The 7200 RPM RPM ensures better system response across the board. The hard disk provides a storage capacity of 8000 GB. The device uses a 256 MB memory cache. The data transfer between the Western Digital hard disk and the PC or other devices is facilitated via the SATA III interface.
The HDD boasts a unique design. Inside the enclosure there is a mechanism that utilises moving platters, complete with disk read/write heads. These mechanical parts don't take shocks and impact well, but this design delivers a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The important criterion that determines the speed of a hard drive is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). With the WD Red Plus 8TB, you can look forward to 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This should delight the more demanding users, such as graphic or video editors - in short, people who work with large amounts of data. System responsivity and overall stability is also affected by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital HDD features a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their fast retrieval and reading.
If you want to mount the WD Red Plus 8TB in the device of your choice, you need a 3.5" slot. Data transfer is done through the SATA III interface with a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
