These disks, according to the company, support high-intensity workloads in environments that work 24 hours a day and, although they are designed for SMEs and larger companies, they will be more affordable for consumers.

OptiNAND and conventional recording technology

The new 20TB WD Red Pro arrives with OptiNAND. It is a technology that combines an iNAND Universal Flash Storage (UFS) Embedded Flash Drive (EFD) with traditional spinning disk media and includes firmware and system-on-chip (SoC) algorithm changes for greater reliability. and performance.

Western Digital has equipped its new 3.5-inch hard drive with nine platters of 2.2TB each with ePMR (Power Assisted Perpendicular Magnetic Recording) technology and not the disputed SMR technology. If we delve a bit into the specifications we find 512 MB of cache, 7200 RPM and a transfer rate of up to 268MB/s.
