In an effort to address the increasing demand for storage space, Western Digital Corporation has brought its new high-capacity and HelioSeal-powered hard drives to the country, upgrading the capacity of its existing storage solutions to 8 terabytes (8TB).
WD’s storage offerings, which include the WD My Cloud (My Cloud, My Cloud Mirror, My Cloud EX2 Ultra) and WD My Book (My Book for PC, My Book for Mac, My Book Duo and My Book Pro) will benefit from the new high-capacity hard drives.
In addition, Western Digital hard drives such as the WD Red, WD Purple, and WD Red Pro will also come in 8TB capacities, offering consumers with bigger hard drives to put in on their NAS or their custom PC.
With a little bit of RAID know-how, consumers can also double the size of their storage by configuring two new 8TB hard drives in RAID 0 to come up with a 16TB set up.
The 8TB Western Digital My Book is now available in the country with a sticker price of Php15,900. On the other hand, the My Cloud, My Book for Mac, My Book Duo, My Book Pro, WD Red and WD Purple 8TB configurations will be sold locally during the first half of 2016.
