Storage solutions provider Western Digital has launched a high performance hard drive, available with capacities of 500 and 250 GB, for demanding users in Malaysia, said the company.
The Western Digital (WD) VelociRaptor 1 TB [terabyte] hard drive is the largest capacity 10,000 RPM [revolutions per minute] hard drive on the market today, said WD sales director, Asia South, Margaret Koh.
"The new drive uses enterprise-class mechanics to provide 24x7 durability under high-performance workloads," said Koh. "Creative pros use write-intensive applications that manage large, dynamic files; for example, video editing and digital content creation and management, which ultimately put a strain on storage devices that use write-challenged NAND memory for performance enhancement. WD VelociRaptor's outstanding read and write performance across the entire disk capacity makes it a perfect match for the creative professional and enthusiast who wants to optimize their tools, enhance productivity, and increase storage space at the same time."
"With ever-increasing demand for greater capacity, the new 1 TB WD VelociRaptor drive delivers the ultimate combination of speed and storage for the power user," she said, adding that the hard drive comes in the IcePack enclosure, a 3.5-inch mounting frame with built-in heat sink - a factory customisation that fits the drive into a standard 3.5-inch system bay and keeps the powerful drive extra cool when installed in a high-performance desktop or workstation system.
