Western Digital RE2-GP 1TB SATA

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 centers 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.


Key Features

Reduced power consumption Helps enable eco-friendly servers Lower total cost of ownership IntelliPower - A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms IntelliSeek - Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower unnecessary 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 monitors work load and automatically invokes idle mode whenever possible Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) achieves even greater areal density StableTrac secures the motor shaft at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations RAID-specific time-limited error recovery (TLER) prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives
