There’s a WD Red drive for every compatible NAS system to help fulfill your data storage needs. With drives up to 12TB, WD Red offers a wide array of solutions for customers looking to build a high performing NAS storage solution. Built for single-bay to 8-bay NAS systems, WD Red packs the power to store your precious data in one powerhouse unit. With WD Red, you’re ready for what’s next.

The drive for NAS

Desktop drives aren’t typically tested or designed for the rigors of a NAS system. Do right by your NAS and choose the drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
  • Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, optimum performance is not guaranteed
  • Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a challenging one. And desktop drives aren't typically designed and tested under those conditions. WD Red drives are.
  • Error recovery controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments.
  • Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives typically offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration present in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems.

Built for NAS Compatibility

Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS. But WD Red drives with NASware technology are. WD's exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red drives are for small NAS systems, and the unique algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put, a WD Red drive is one of the most compatible drives available for NAS enclosures. WD Red drives are a reflection of extensive NAS partner technology engagement and compatibility-testing resulting in a leading compatibility list for NAS systems.

Keep it Cool

The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one. WD Red drives are engineered to run cool and quiet while offering optimum compatibility for demanding 24x7 environments.


WD Red for Home

Stream, backup, organize and effortlessly share your digital content to your TV, PC and more. NASware technology increases your drives' compatibility with your NAS system, for better playback with your devices.

WD Red for Small Business

Businesses thrive on productivity and efficiency, two guiding principles built into the design of the WD Red drive. Share and backup files at the speed of your business with a WD Red drive in your NAS.

WD Red for Big Business

Looking for maximum performance in a heavy use NAS? The WD Red Pro drive is designed to handle an increase in workload and system demand and features a 5-year limited warranty.

3D Active Balance Plus

Helps to ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control maintains your drive’s performance over time.

Premium Support and a 3-year Limited Warranty

Confidently upgrade to the best in NAS drive performance with the assurance of a 3-year limited warranty and world-class support services included with every WD Red drive.

24/7 Environment

Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. Desktop drives are not typically designed and tested in 24x7 conditions, which is a foundation of WD Red NAS hard drives.
