WD Red Pro 8TB

The WD Red Pro 8TB hard drive ranks among the high load internal HDDs for 24/7 operation in data centres. 3.5" HDDs are designed mainly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the crucial parameters is undoubtedly the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). The 7200 RPM RPM provides better speeds when working with multimedia and data. The overall data capacity of the HDD is 8000 GB. The drive has a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect the Western Digital hard drive and a computer or other device takes place via the SATA III interface.

Other Hard Disk Features

Platter HDDs have a special construction. Inside the enclosure there is a mechanism with moving platters accompanied by disk read/write heads. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but this design delivers its amazing price/capacity ratio. The key criterion that determines the speed of a platter hard disk is the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). With the WD Red Pro 8TB, you can look forward to 7200 RPM RPM. This is ideal for 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 determined the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Western Digital hard drive is equipped with a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their fast retrieval and reading.

Connecting the Western Digital Hard Disk

If you want to install the WD Red Pro 8TB in your computer or other device, you need a 3.5" slot. All communication with the computer happens via the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. The technology is one of the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
