Disk maker Western Digital has expanded its NAS-centric Red line with 6TB hard disks (the increased capacity is headed to the consumer-oriented Green line). WD has also introduced the new Red Pro line for medium to large businesses.
The Western Digital Red disks now range from 1TB to 6TB and support 1 to 8-bay NAS setups.
While the Red line is targeted at home and small business NAS setups, the Red Pro aims higher. Designed for medium and large businesses. They support up to 8 to 16-bay NAS setups and disks range from 2TB to 4TB.
The NASware software that comes with Red disks has also been updated to version 3.0 for improved performance and reliability plus reduced downtime.
The WD Green line will also get 5TB and 6TB disks, which we’ll be seeing in My Book and My Cloud drives.
The WD Red and Red Pro lines are available now in the US at select retailers and distributors. They have three and five-year limited regional warranties respectively. Note that all of these are 3.5″ disks.
