    In lieu of the WD Black 6TB’s launch, the very first WD Red PRO HDD with 6TB has also been released – with capacity, and NAS compatibility in mind. The WD Red PRO features 16 bay shock protection, WD’s NASWare firmware, vibration protection, and a 5 year limited warranty. A stretch of 2 more years compared to other 6TB counterparts.

    With all those features in mind, WD is keen to follow the success of the lower capacity Red NAS drives. At the moment, the family of WD Red PRO in both 5TB & 6TB versions are now available via selected distributors with price ranging from 14, 200 to 15, 800 Pesos (MSRP).

    A PART OF THE INDUSTRY-LEADING FAMILY OF NAS HARD DRIVES, WD RED PRO ENABLES HIGHER STORAGE DENSITY FOR SYSTEMS UP TO 16 BAYS

    MANILA, Philippines, – Aug 24, 2015 – WD®, a Western Digital® (NASDAQ:WDC) company, and world leader in storage solutions, today announced the expansion of its award-winning WD Red Pro hard drive line with the release of 5 TB and 6 TB capacities. The WD Red Pro family is ideal for NAS (network attached storage) systems having up to 16 drive bays and serving businesses with more expansive storage needs than the standard WD Red drives.
