PROMISE Technology Inc., a global leader in the storage industry that develops solutions for the cloud/IT, rich media and video surveillance markets, announced today that its Vess storage series supports the new WD Red PRO line of SATA hard drives. The WD Red PRO line is specifically designed for NAS applications and features NASware 3.0 in addition to a unique vibration sensor design which enables the hard drives to be paired with for example the Vess R2000 to provide an optimized NAS environment experience with impressive reliability for end-users and owners of small and medium-sized business. "The new shock sensor design of the WD Red PRO line really improves the reliability and stability of the system which is a major concern for mission critical applications," said Eddie Huang, Vess Product Planning and Marketing Manager, PROMISE Technology. "The shock sensor design makes the drive itself more stable which is perfect to deliver optimal performance in densely packed, multi-drive environments like RAID disk arrays, especially when it comes to systems with more than 5 bays, like the Vess R2000, where drive stability is critical." The new WD Red PRO is available in 3.5" form factors to provide density and capacity-optimized solutions. For more information regarding WD Red hard drives, please visit www.wdc.com.
