WD Re+™ Datacenter Capacity HDD

Power-optimized, high-capacity storage for high-availability deployments.
The WD Re+ hard drive offers the industry an unprecedented combination of power optimization, capacity and durability. This drive is the key building block for storage systems which need power efficiency and maximum application intensity in the same solution. The WD Re+ drive optimizes Performance-perWatt, GB-per-Watt and Workload-per-Watt, providing an entirely new option for modern storage infrastructures. Built on WD’s high-volume, multi-generation, 5-platter platform, the WD Re+ drive delivers the industry’s lowest power high capacity drive.

Product Benefits

Capacity storage for the modern datacenter
These high capacity drives are built to succeed in today’s modern datacenters, where the insatiable demand for dense storage must fit into a datacenter facility with fixed power capability, increasing the desire for drives with improved power efficiency metrics of GB/W and Performance/W.

Designed for high-intensity applications
The WD Re+ drive is designed to handle heavy workloads of up to 550 TB per year in high-intensity, always on datacenter applications. These drives deliver power efficiencies and reliability to any datacenter environment.

Designed for quality and reliability
With up to 1.2 million hour MTBF, this power optimized drive delivers durability and reliability for 24x7x365 operation in the most demanding storage environments.

Vibration Protection
Enhanced RAFF™ technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments.

The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations.

Dual actuator technology
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). 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

Multi-axis shock sensor
Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.

RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)
Reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.

NoTouch™ ramp load technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Dynamic fly height technology
Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

3D Active Balance™ Plus
Our enhanced dual-plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.


This drive is compatible with any server that accepts 3.5in x 1.0in (LFF) SATA drives.
