Two new SKUs are added- a 5TB (WD50EFRX) and 6TB (WD60EFRX) variant into its existing WD Red Series HDD lineups. What’s more is that WD also introduced a new series called Red Pro with 2TB (WD2001FFSX), 3TB (3001FFSX) and 4TB (4001FFSX) variants.
The Red series is made specifically for NAS purposes, mainly for SOHO purposes. In the end WD was able to cough up a solution for an affordable NAS-centric hard drives. As one would assume with the prefix, the WD Red ‘Pro’ is made for medium to large business environments that uses anywhere between eight to sixteen NAS bay Network systems.
