Western Digital Ultrastar 8TB SATA3 Picture 51804
WD Ultrastar drives are oriented toward data center use, with a focus on both performance and reliability. They use the SATA 6Gbps interconnect, spin at 7200rpm, have 128 or 256 MB cache, and 1 to 12TB total capacity. Reliability is ensured with dual actuator head positioning, RAFF for vibration protection, and TLER to help avoid drives dropping out of arrays (RAID). Even though they are aimed at data centers and other enterprise applications, the features these drives have make them excellent options for users who need high capacity, reliability, and performance.
