WD Red™: The colour of NAS.

WD Red is designed for NAS systems that have 1-8 drive bays. Available in capacities ranging from 1TB to 8TB, WD Red is designed specifically for home and small office NAS systems. The drives are extensively tested for compatibility and reliability in the demanding operating environment of a 24x7 NAS system. WD's exclusive NASware™ firmware technology enables seamless integration and balanced performance. Innovative technology reduces power consumption and lowers the operating temperature, and with a 35% improvement in MTBF over desktop drives, WD Red is a more reliable and robust NAS hard drive solution.

• Designed specifcally for home and small office NAS systems - WD Red is the only hard drive for 1-8 bay systems
• Exclusive NASware™ technology - advanced firmware for seamless integration and optimal performance
• Energy efficient and reliable - Innovative technology reduces power consumption and operating temperature

  • Beyond desktop with NASware

    WD Red drives include WD's exclusive NASware technology that addresses many of the challenges a traditional desktop hard drive has in a NAS system. WD works directly with the partners to test compatibility and reduce thecustomer's guess work as to which drive is right for their NAS system. Designed to deliver a better customer experience in small NAS systems, this innovative firmware finely balances the most important attributes of performance, power, and reliability in multiple drive environments. The unique algorithms in NASware optimize power and performance without compromising on the attributes that NAS-system owner's value.
  • Important features for system integrators

    In addition to features that make WD Red drives perfect for populating or upgrading NAS systems, NASware brings features that system integrators need when building specialized NAS systems.
  • Save power and money

    NASware optimizes power use resulting in significant power savings and lower hard drive operating temperatures. This improves the overall reliability and performance of the drive and reduces the NAS cost of ownership.
  • Intelligent error recovery

    With built in intelligent error recovery controls, NASware also prevents hard drives from being dropped off the RAID due to extended error recovery. This provides more availability and less down time rebuilding the RAID.
  • Command completion

    To further improve reliability, NASware minimizes the data corruption or loss in the event of an unexpected power loss by completing the command in process before shutting down.
