NASware are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of
selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems, and our unique
algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID
environments. Simply put, WD Red is the most compatible drive
available for NAS enclosures. But don't take our word for it. WD
Red is a reflection of the most extensive NAS partner
compatibility-testing list that is available on the market.*
Desktop drives vs. WD Red
In a Network Attached Storage device, a desktop hard drive is not
designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose the
drive with an array of features to preserve your data and maintain
optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when
choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
- Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your
NAS system, optimum performance is not guaranteed.
- Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot
one. And desktop drives aren't typically designed and tested in
those conditions. WD Red is.
- Error recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically
designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures
within the NAS system. Desktop drives are typically not designed
for RAID environments where this can be an issue.
- Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop
drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration
faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for
multi-bay NAS systems.

3D Active Balance Plus
Ensures your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise
in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control
reduces the degradation of your drive over time.

essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red drive
with NASware 3.0 is designed for the 24x7 environment.
