In this article, we will guide you about WD Red 2TB NAS Hard Drive Black Friday Deals 2020. Read the complete article and keep you updated.
Tell you their champs and welcome to the show today I’ll be talking about why you need nice hard drives in your nest and I’ll be reviewing the WD red hard drives it’s really important that you get those hard drives if you’re going to be using an S stay tuned and I’ll tell you why okay let’s first have a look at this WD red now WD was the first company to make Nass hard drives the WD red is hard drive
here is the second terabyte model as 64 megabytes cache you can use eight of them together in an ass so if you compare that to see gates Ness a drive you can only use five together now has a thousand hours mean time between failure so it’s up to 35 percent longer in between mean time failures than a consumer hard drive and this consumer hard drive say for example this WD blue here it has a three year warranty compared to the WD blue which only has a 12 month warranty so that’s good peace of mind as 24/7 support it has a special firmware called Nazareth 3 which has two that’s T le R which is basically time limited every recovery now this was only exclusive to enterprise hard drives but now you can get that on these WD reds which is obviously why these good for Nance and I’ll get to that later as well it has a quieter seat than the normal say WD Blu drive here it’s quite a seat it’s more tolerant to vibrations and noise it uses less power it’s built to work in a hot environment with several hard drives put next to it so why I chose this WD red drives and I use this for my personal Nass is because I think it’s the best bang for buck comparing it to the Seagate Ness hard drives one it can use eight instead of five together in terms of speed if you go to a non tech or even if you go to Linus they’ve tested out these nice hard drives and there’s basically no difference at all in terms of speed very little even 128 megabytes of the WD read Proust is still not that much difference so in terms of performance doesn’t matter really what nice drive you get it has something called it in telly power which means that the WD read spins at 5400 rpm but when it needs to it can ramp up to 7200 rpm it can burst up to that speed so it gives you the speed when you need it and in all other times it spins at that low speed 5400 rpm so it makes it quieter and it uses less power so I just think it’s a better buy than the Seagate nice hard drive just has more features you can use it with more hard drives but really you can’t go wrong whichever way you go now what you don’t want to be using these WD blues or anything or any consumer drive for your Nass is because they are not built for the mass environment the way a nice hard drive error corrects in its firmware this comes with NASA wear three so it’s the third generation of its firmware and as I said before has time limited error recovery which was only in enterprise NASA’s before this now what that means is I’m looking to get too technical but what will happen is if you put consumer hard drives in there’s a good chance.
If they hit an error because they don’t know where they are in a chain and they’re not communicating properly with the RAID controller they can keep trying to correct that error and they’ll get dropped from the array and then what will happen is your kness will just start rebuilding and then if it’s another error again on the consumer hard drive that can fail and then it can just kill all your data at once and it has happened and it does happen with Nass hard drives they have auto dynamic balancing they have tore time limited error recovery and they know where they are in the chain so if this is the second drive in the volume of for hard drives it knows it’s the second drive and it’s talking to the raid controller and it knows that it has to give the error correction quicker otherwise it’ll drop from the volume not to mention that they are built for 24/7 as I said it’s up to 35% more errors mean time between failures so a consumer hard drive is up to 35% more of a chance to fail especially in the raid environment that probably goes up even more than those hard drives are quieter they use less power and they’re more tolerant to the NASA environment meeting heat vibration sound and you get the three year warranty and it can work with eight drives in the case of the WD red whenever you do if you get an ass get WD Reds I recommend WD red or at least get an ass hard drive you can also get Enterprise drives and WD red pros which to me I don’t think they’re worth that extra cost in the NASA environment sure if you if you got a twelve by Nest’s definitely get WD red pros or Enterprise drives but if you’re just working in your single NASA environment or up to eight hard drives you’re better off getting WD Red’s because you’ll save a lot of money and not only that chances are in your NASA environment two four six Bay’s whatever you’re going to be limited by your Ethernet cable so you’re not going to get any extra speed out of it unless you have Ethernet cables linked aggregated even then if you have your Ethernet connections link aggregated they’re probably going to be used more in the load balancing scenario rather than using them on the together for extra speed so there’s no real advantages unless you’re talking about proper servers and twelve bay drives or something like.
