WD announces Re+ hard drives

The US maker of hard drives Western Digital (WD) has announced the new Re+ line of hard drives. The new line offers models with capacities of up to 6 TB and is designed for use in datacenters and storage systems.

The new Re+ drives come in the common 3.5-inch form factor and, according to Western Digital, offer the lowest energy consumption in this class. A Re+ drive needs just 6W of power when operating and provides its users with resistance against vibrations and 1.2 million hours of MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure), which makes the entire Re+ line very reliable. The drives, however, are designed to withstand loads of up to 550 TB per year. A single Re+ drive includes up to 5 recording platters and of course the latest SATA 3.0 standard is fully supported.

The Re+ line will be on the market in July 2015. Since it is still March, WD has not provided any information on pricing.
