Invest in Gold
Featuring up to ten times the workload capacity of desktop drives, WD Gold(TM) hard drives are designed from the ground up for enterprise-class reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance.
Enhanced RAFF(TM) technology uses sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct linear and rotational vibrations in real time for improved performance versus WD's desktop drives in high-vibration environments.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)
Time-limited error recovery helps to reduce drive fallout within a storage environment caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Dynamic fly height technology
Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time to ensure consistent performance for reduced errors and optimized reliability.
All WD Gold hard drives are extensively tested across a variety of popular OEM storage systems, SATA controllers, and host bus adapters, to ensure ease of integration for a plug and play solution.
Durable storage with the reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance for enterprise-class applications.
