Western Digital has introduced its new enterprise-class WD Gold NVMe SSDs designed to help small- and medium-sized companies transition to NVMe storage. The SSDs offer power loss protection and high performance with low latency.
The WD Gold NVMe SSDs will be available in four capacities — .96TB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB — in early Q2 of this year. The WD Gold NVMe SSD is designed to be, according to the company, “the primary storage in servers delivering significantly improved application responsiveness, higher throughput and greater scale than existing SATA devices for enterprise applications.”
These new NVMe SSDs complement the recently launched WD Gold HDDs by providing a high-performance storage tier for applications and data sets that require low latency or high throughput.
The WD Gold NVMe SSDs are designed using Western Digital’s silicon-to-system technology, from its 3D TLC NAND SSD media to its purpose-built firmware and own integrated controller. The drives give users peace of mind knowing they’re protected against power loss and that data paths are safe. Secure boot and secure erase provide users with additional data-management protections, and the devices come with an extended five-year limited warranty.
