By: Thecus Technology Corp.
NEW TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan - Oct. 4, 2022 - PRLog -- Thecus is excited to announce that the new WD Red Pro hard drives with 22 Terabyte can be used in every current Thecus NAS model. These recently introduced HDDs offer the biggest capacity for network attached storage to date and are now supported to expand Thecus NAS systems with up to 16 bays.

The new WD Red Pro 22 TB boosts the current series of 3.5-inch HDDs with higher capacities and is also specifically designed and optimized for operation as network attached storage. Like the whole WD Red Pro line-up, the new model is engineered with CMR (conventional magnetic recording) technology at 7200 RPM to handle highly intensive workloads around the clock at high data transfer speeds and is ideal for prosumers or enthusiasts, small to medium-sized businesses or enterprises and their large NAS environments.

The WD Red Pro 22 TB features integrated 512 MB buffer with 10 disks enclosed in sealed casing with Helium to achieve this high capacity and improve power efficiency - especially important when used in NAS with a high number of bays like Thecus rackmount models. The advanced firmware technology, NASware™ 3.0, enables seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance for NAS systems operating under heavy demand. NASware 3.0 improves storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability. To further confirm its high reliability, Western Digital offers 5 years of limited warranty for the WD Red Pro series.

To achieve this high level of storage capacity, Western Digital uses its own OptiNAND™ technology that boosts areal density to a market-leading 2.2 TB per platter. The widely available SATA 6Gbit/s interface ensures high compatibility and offers sustained data transfer rates of up to 269 MB/s. To keep energy costs in check, the WD Red Pro 22 TB uses less than 1.6 watts in standby mode and just 4.1W idle power.

After comprehensive compatibility testing with numerous systems, the WD Red Pro 22 TB (WD221KFGX) is drop-in ready for every current Thecus NAS (and even many older models) to expand capacities and satisfy any storage-needy application or environment.
