WD Gold overview

  • 1Description

The 8TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD from WD delivers 8TB of storage capacity for high-availability servers and storage arrays. This 3.5" drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 256MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, all of which help to ensure a sustained rate of up to 225 MB/s. It comes armed with HelioSeal Helium technology that enables up to 26 percent lower power consumption when compared to a standard drive. With an error tolerance of <1 in 1015, an MTBF of 2.5 million hours, an AFR of 0.35%, it is well suited for small- to medium-scale enterprise environments that require a durable and reliable storage drive. In addition to the drive's performance and reliability features, Western Digital offers a 24/7 premium support line and includes Acronis True Image WD Edition cloning software.

Workload Capability
Delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment, WD Gold hard drives are designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year.
Reliability
With a MTBF of up to 2.5 million hours, WD Gold hard drives deliver reliability and durability for yearly operation (24x7x365) within demanding storage environments.
Disk Utilities and Migration Tools
Acronis True Image WD Edition can clone drives as well as backup your operating system, applications, settings, and all of your data, while also having the ability to wipe any data you no longer need securely. You can quickly and easily deploy a new hard drive to your PC or laptop and automatically migrate your operating system, applications, and all of your important data.
RAID-Specific, Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER)
Reduces the drive's fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Extended Thermal Burn-in Test
Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
Dynamic Fly Height and Dual Actuators
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track. The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.

    WD Gold reviews

    8TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold 8TB RAID 1 drives Purchased 2 drives for RAID 1 data backup solution. I still have 4TB RE enterprise and Black drives 4 years old that work still. 4tb HGST NAS and Enterprise drives not as reliable as I've had 10+ of those.WD gold Drive is fast and has 24/7 support. Will buy again. Looking forward to 16TB drives. On the fence with 12TB, 8TB is a nice 7.5tb formatted size. Runs cool and quiet. Use these drives as storage for Photos and Video Projects. Edit data on Samsung SSD, and then copy project files back to Gold Drives. Hope these last 5+ years.
