Western Digital Gold WD6002FRYZ 6TB 7200RPM Hard Drive Review
Designed for 24x7x365 reliability at workloads up to 550TB per year
This ATA-600 series WD6002FRYZ Western Digital Gold 6TB 7200RPM 3.5-inch Internal Hard Drive is built with the advanced technology to deliver among the best in reliability, capacity, power efficiency and performance. The WD Gold hard drive is designed for a multitude of Datacenter-specific applications, perfect for high-availability server and storage arrays that demand the most robust storage devices.
From entry-level servers to high end enterprise storage systems, this WD Gold hard drive is the ideal drive for the most demanding datacenter environments and handle workloads up to 550TB per year which is among the highest workload capability of 3.5inch hard drives.
Enhanced RAFF™ technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over our desktop hard drives.
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)
Reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Dynamic fly height technology
Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.
Dual actuator technology
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
All WD Gold hard drives are extensively tested across a variety of popular OEM storage systems, SATA controllers, and host bus adapters, to ensure ease of integration for a plug and play solution.
