Western Digital has just announced the availability of its new 22TB hard drives targeting three key segments: hard drives WD Gold for IT/data center channel customers; WD Red Pro for network attached storage (NAS); Y WD Purple Pro for surveillance/intelligent video. As the company informed in its event what’s nextthese new units incorporate the latest developments in the industry such as the OptiNAND technology, Power Assisted PMR (ePMR), Triple Stage Actuator (TSA), or HelioSeal to deliver the industry’s highest areal density at 2.2TB per platter, and make 22TB CMR hard drives available to customers.
WD Gold – drives for the data center
Cloud and enterprise data center architects continue to strive to get the most out of their IT infrastructure investment. Storing every bit matters, and factors such as capacity, density, power usage, or sustainability play a critical role in helping to lower your total cost of ownership (TCO). Achieving the largest CMR HDD capacity available in the industry can help achieve this goal. The new CMR hard drive WD Gold 22TB Western Digital Enterprise Storage with OptiNAND technology allows users the ability to lower total cost of ownership by increasing storage in the same footprint or by reducing costs. racks. It can also help reduce costs by adding more racks, network, power, cooling, cabling, etc. A unique feature of Western Digital is its technology ArmorCache, OptiNAND-enabled, which combines the performance of Write Cache Mode Enabled with the data protection of Write Cache Mode Disabled, allowing you to use both. The WD Gold HDD product portfolio includes solutions ranging from 1TB to 22TB, ideal for demanding storage environments, offering up to 2.5 million hours MTBF, vibration protection technology and low power consumption thanks to technology. HelioSeal (for 12TB and above solutions).
Compatible with leading NAS systems with up to 24 bays
Working from home has accelerated and many small office, home office and SMB workers are trying to manage rapidly growing amounts of data. the new hard drive WD Red Pro CMR 22TB with OptiNAND technology is the perfect solution for those with high-capacity storage needs or for those who have reached the maximum capacity on their current network-attached storage (NAS) system. Specifically designed for NAS systems with up to 24 bays, WD Red Pro hard drives are optimized for multi-user environments and can handle high-intensity workloads in 24×7 environments. WD Red Pro hard drives are ideal for storing, protecting, archiving, and sharing massive amounts of data with many users and can handle multiple data-intensive applications such as file sync and share, backup/archive, media repository, and more. private cloud storage. The WD Red Pro family comes in capacities ranging from 2TB to 22TB.

WD Purple Pro Server Hard Drives
Intelligent video surveillance is on the rise, which means an ever-increasing need for storage. For example, high-resolution cameras capture multiple streams of video, images, and metadata per camera; AI and video analytics place new demands on the quantity, quality, and retention of video data; and deep learning solutions need more video to drive AI algorithms. All this coupled with the fact that Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) customers need purpose-built storage to efficiently manage this data at scale. The hard drive WD Purple Pro CMR 22TB Powered by OptiNAND, it offers great capacity to address these requirements, is targeted at the enterprise sector, and works with video analytics servers and deep learning and artificial intelligence systems. It also features Western Digital’s exclusive AllFrame AI technology that supports 32 AI streams for deep learning analysis within the system while helping to reduce dropped frames. WD Purple Pro drives are optimized to handle up to 64 single-stream HD cameras, as well as many of the latest smart cameras that transmit multiple streams. It also offers high levels of reliability with an MTBF of up to 2.5 million hours. for advanced intelligent video solutions that work in 24/7 environments. The WD Purple Pro family of hard drives comes in capacities from 8TB to 22TB¹.
