Exclusive NASware 3.0 technology
Our exclusive advanced firmware technology, NASware 3.0 enables seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance for NAS systems operating under heavy demand.
Built for optimum NAS compatibility
Desktop drives aren’t purpose-built for NAS. But WD Red Pro drives with NASware are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive and balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put, WD Red Pro is the most compatible drive available for medium to large NAS enclosures. But don’t take our word for it. WD Red Pro is a reflection of the most extensive NAS partner compatibility-testing list that is available on the market.*

Larger NAS Bay Shock Protection
WD Red Pro is equipped with a multi-axis shock sensor that automatically detects subtle shock events and dynamic fly height technology which adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data. This combination of technology further protects the drives in larger 1 to 16 bay NAS environments and helps increase hard drive reliability.
3D Active Balance Plus
Our enhanced dual-plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.
Error Recovery Prevention
Built specifically for RAID and NAS environments, WD Red Pro drives come equipped with error recovery controls as part of NASware 3.0, reducing drive fallout in RAID applications.
Extended Drive Testing
A NAS environment that has up to 16 bays is very demanding on a hard drive with added vibration, heat and other factors. This is why every WD Red Pro drive is shipped with extended thermal cycle burn-in testing to help ensure each drive is tested for extended reliable operation.
Longer Warranty Coverage
WD Red Pro offers longer warranty coverage than the WD Red, with a 5-year limited warranty for an even greater peace of mind.
