Written by Rob Squires



Up to 4TB


Western Digital has updated its offerings in their enterprise-class storage with the release of new "RE SAS" and "RE SATA" hard drives models in capacities up to 4 TB.  The drives are available immediately in 1 TB, 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB capacities for nearline SAS; and 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB for SATA.  Both series ship only in the 3.5-inch form factor and offer the combination of enterprise-class features and high-capacity to meet the growing demands of business-critical environments.

Features of the new WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives include:

  • Dual port, full duplex connectivity: Ideal for leading business-critical enterprise topologies.
  • 1.4M hours MTBF / 1.2M hours MTBF: Provides the highest level of reliability for 24x7 and up to
  • 100% duty applications, for the WD RE SAS and SATA, respectively.
  • Planet friendly: RoHS compliant, halogen reduced components.
  • NoTouch ramp load technology: Recording heads never touch the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to recording heads and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
  • Dual Stage Actuation (DSA) and Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF): Best in class operation and performance when drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.
  • Highest Capacity: Perfect for maximum capacity enterprise storage solutions, such as scale out, cloud storage, RAID arrays, and NAS; a massive 2.4 PB of available storage (with 10 4U, 60 bay enclosures).
  • Highest Reliability: 5-disk platform, 800 GB per platter, SAS-interface, 6 Gb/sec transfer rates built for high performance 24x7.


Starting today the drives are available through select distributors and resellers.  All of the 3.5-inch WD RE SAS and WD RE SATA hard drives are covered by a five-year limited warranty. Pricing starts at $139 for the 1 TB SAS model.
