April 22nd, 2016 | by Z. Gonzales

Storage giant Western Digital is continuously expanding its empire by covering as much as the market as it can. The company recently unveiled a new type of product that specifically targets business data centers.

WD’s new Gold drives were designed with small and medium enterprises in mind. The new drive will supposedly come with features that should provide a solution to the storage needs of these businesses.

The new drives are also said to have improved performance over the WD Re 4TB data center drives and up to 30 percent improvement in random write performance over its predecessor.

On top of these, WD is also providing a dedicated premium support which should allow WD Gold customers to reach the company’s technical support with ease.
