Product Info

Always Attached, Never Outmatched

With drives up to 10TB, the WD Red drive is built for single-bay to 8-bay NAS systems and packs the capacity to store your precious data in one powerhouse unit.

  • Cooler Temperatures
    By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cool. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS
  • Built for NAS Compatibility
    WD Red drives with NASware technology are purpose-built to balance performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments

Businesses thrive on productivity and efficiency, two guiding principles built into the design of the WD Red drive. Share and backup files at the speed of your business with a WD Red drive in your NAS.


Designed for NAS

Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS. But WD Red drives with NASware 3.0 are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. We can help you find the perfect storage for your NAS system.

3D Active Balance Plus

Helps to ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control maintains your drive’s performance over time.
