Product Description

As demand for storage continues to expand, the need for more efficient power solutions becomes paramount. WD RE2-GP makes it possible for large scale data centres to increase storage capacity without exceeding available power, and in many cases actually reduce power consumption. WD RE2-GP drives help combat the four major challenges large data installations face-total drive slots, maximum capacity, power allotment, and available operations expense budget-while lowering the overall total cost of ownership.

Main Features:

  • Reduced power consumption - The combination of WD's IntelliSeek, IntelliPark, and IntelliPower technologies bring optimized performance at industry leading low power consumption; power is reduced as much as 40%
  • Helps enable eco-friendly servers - Each WD RE2-GP drive consumes an average of 4-5 watts less than competitor drives making it possible for energy-conscious customers to build servers with higher capacities, ensured reliability, and promote energy conser
  • IntelliPower - A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance. Additionally, GreenPower drives consume less current during start up allowing more drives to
  • IntelliSeek - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
  • IntelliPark - Delivers lower power consumption by automatically unloading recording heads during idle to reduce aerodynamic drag, and by disengaging read/write channel electronics
  • Active Power Management - WD GreenPower drives monitor work load and automatically invoke idle mode whenever possible to further reduce unnecessary power consumption. Drive recovery time from idle mode is less than one second, providing seamless power man
  • Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) - Employs PMR technology to achieve even greater areal density
  • RAID-specific time-limited error recovery (TLER) - Pioneered by WD, this feature prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives
