Western Digital Adds Helium-Filled WD Gold 10 TB HDD to Lineup

Summary

The WD Gold 10 TB drive (WD101KRYZ) shares the hermetically-sealed 3.5” platform with the WD Gold 8 TB, which was introduced earlier this year. Just like the other WD Gold HDDs, the new 10 TB model was designed for a variety of server applications, including small to medium-scale machines, as well as rack-mount data center servers and storage enclosures. The drive is promoted as being optimized for RAID environments and supports enhanced RAFF technology that protects against vibration (by monitoring linear and rotational vibration in real time) as well as head positioning system with two actuators, which increases positional accuracy. In addition, the WD Gold 10 TB also supports time-limited error recovery technology (TLER), which prevents drive fallout caused by extended HDD error recovery processes.

The WD Gold 8 TB model released earlier this year already featured a number of performance and energy efficiency optimizations and the WD Gold 10 TB hard drive is designed to improve even further.
