With the ability to support up to 32 HD cameras, the 8TB Purple 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal HDD from WD has been designed for surveillance use in DVR and NVR systems with up to eight bays. WD Purple drives thrive in 24/7 always-on environments, where they can be subject to high temperatures, as well as increased heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations. WD's surveillance storage also includes AllFrame technology, allowing ATA streaming to be improved in order to reduce errors, pixelation, and video interruptions.
This 8TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 128MB cache, and a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, which all help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 178 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 300,000 load/unload cycles and < 1 in 1014 non-recoverable read errors per bits read,
Storage & Surveillance
WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 bays and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance systems. WD Purple surveillance storage also comes with WD's AllFrame technology, so you can create a security system tailored to the needs of your business. Using AllFrame technology, WD Purple drives help improve ATA streaming to reduce errors, pixelation, and video interruptions that could happen in a video recorder system
WD Purple drives have been engineered specifically for surveillance, so they're able to withstand the extreme heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations within a DVR environment. An average desktop drive is built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. A disruption to a drive could result in a failure that impacts multiple users, your security archive, or even the entire system. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that's tested for compatibility in a wide-range of security systems
Compatibility & Integration
WD Purple hard drives are built with compatibility in mind, so you can quickly and seamlessly add capacity to your surveillance system. With a wide range of enclosures and chipsets supported, you're sure to find a DVR configuration that's right for you
Expand Your View to 32
Each WD Purple drive is optimized to support up to 32 HD cameras. With so many options, you have the flexibility to upgrade or expand your security system in the future
Missed frames and lost footage could be a serious problem when video surveillance needs to be retrieved. All WD Purple drives are equipped with AllFrame technology, which improves ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve overall video playback, and increase the number of hard drive bays supported within a DVR.

Less Power, More Efficient
Low power consumption is a necessity in a high-temperature, always-on surveillance environment. With WD's IntelliSeek technology, WD Purple drives are able to calculate optimum seek speeds. This helps keep power consumption low so ambient noise and vibrations are at a minimum
