But WD Red drives with NASware are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems, and our unique algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put, WD Red is the most compatible drive available for NAS enclosures. But don't take our word for it.WD Red is a reflection of the most extensive NAS partner compatibility-testing list that is available on the market. Compatibility list as of March 2016.
In a Network Attached Storage device, a desktop hard drive is not designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose the drive with an array of features to 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 hot one. And desktop drives aren't typically designed and tested in those conditions. 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 typically not designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue. Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems. Stream, backup, share and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD Red drives designed to effortlessly share content to the devices in your home.
Red NASware increases your drives' compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo and more. Live in a connected world.

WD's exclusive NASware technology, built into every WD Red hard drive. WD's exclusive NASware technology, which is built into every WD RedT hard drive, improves NAS storage performance by reducing common hard drive concerns in NAS systems including concerns for things like compatibility, integration, upgradeability, reliability and cost-of-ownership that are experienced with a hard drive designed for desktop computers. Desktop hard drives are designed for desktop computers. Desktop hard drives are designed for optimum performance and reliability in a desktop personal computer. Although they are an affordable alternative to enterprise-class drives, desktop drives have a higher level of risk for potential data loss and failure in an always-on RAID configured NAS system.Specific issues that you may experience using desktop drives in a NAS or RAID environment include. Compatibility: Desktop hard drives are not always tested for compatibility in NAS and can present problems during integration. Reliability: Most desktop drives are not designed for the high operating temperatures or for 24x7 operating environments making them less reliable when used in a NAS system. Error recovery controls: Desktop drives are not traditionally designed for RAID environments and have controls that prevent the RAID controller from assisting in the event of an error which can cause the hard drive to drop off the RAID after a period of time.
Rebuilding a RAID often requires several hours and can have a significant impact on downtime and productivity. Noise and vibration: Typically designed for single drive applications, average desktop drives are not optimized for multi-drive systems which have higher noise and vibration levels. When these drives are added to a NAS, the additional vibration can reduce the reliability and life span of the drive. Beyond the Desktop with NASware.WD Red drives include WD's exclusive NASware technology that addresses many of the challenges a traditional desktop hard drive has in a NAS system. WD works directly with our partners to test compatibility and reduce our customer's guess work as to which drive is right for their NAS system. Designed to deliver a better customer experience in small NAS systems, this innovative firmware finely balances the most important attributes of performance, power, and reliability in multiple drive environments. The unique algorithms in NASware optimize power and performance without compromising on the attributes that NAS-system owners value. NASware further improves drive reliability and protects your data in the event of a power loss or disruption. Optimized power usage of WD Red drives results in significant power savings and lower hard drive operating temperatures within a small NAS environment, improving the overall reliability and performance of the drive and reduces the NAS cost of ownership. With built in intelligent error recovery controls, NASware also prevents hard drives from being dropped off the RAID due to extended error recovery. This feature provides more availability and less down time when rebuilding the RAID. To further improve reliability, NASware minimizes the data corruption or loss in the event of an unexpected power loss by completing the command in process before shutting down. Important Features for System Integrators. In addition to features that make WD RedT drives perfect for populating or upgrading NAS systems, NASware brings features that system integrators need when building specialized NAS systems. Streaming Support - NASware provides built-in compatibility with the ATA Streaming Feature Set, which is important for AV storage applications such as Windows Media Center. SMART Command Transport (SCT) support - NASware allows monitoring and measuring of drive performance via the SMART command set.
SMART can return data like thermal profiles, drive access statistics and more. NASware also delivers temperature accuracy within 1°C.
Power Management Support - Enables optimized power usage within the NAS system and protects your data in the event of a power loss or disruption. BIC Performance - Optimized seek to provide BIC performance while reducing the power and acoustics. Reduced power consumption - WD has reduced power consumption making it possible for our energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation. Cool and quiet - Drives with WD GreenPower Technology yield lower operating temperatures for increased reliability and low acoustics for ultra-quiet PCs and external drives.
