Western Digital has expanded their WD Gold range to include the new 3.5" 12TB WD Gold hard drive. Featuring 256MB cache, 7200RPM performance and a reliability rating of 2.5 million hours MTBF, the new high-capacity hard drive is the perfect solution for enterprise and cloud storage applications.




"As data growth continues unabated, retaining more of that data and generating meaningful insight from it becomes increasingly important," said Brendan Collins, vice president, Devices business unit, Western Digital. "Businesses that most effectively extract value from operational data are able to make smarter decisions, improve business outcomes and ultimately gain a competitive advantage."


Available in capacities of 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, 6TB, 8TB, 10tb and now 12TB, these drives utilize Western Digital's 4th generation HelioSeal technology, which seals helium in the drive to help provide exceptional capacity, reliability and power efficiency.


The WD Gold 12TB HDD is priced at $521.99 and is available now through select distributors.
