Thecus NAS support new WD Red SA500 SSD

New Western Digital SATA and M.2 SSD with up to 4TB can be used in every current Thecus NAS

Taipei, Taiwan, October 25th, 2019 – Thecus and Western Digital can look back on a close and successful partnership and now that WD, one of the world's leading hard drive suppliers, is releasing its first SSD series specifically for NAS, Thecus can't be more excited to announce that the new WD Red SA500 solid state drives are supported by every current Thecus NAS model.

The new WD Red SA500 SSD will be available both in SATA and M.2 form factors with initial capacities of 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB. These SSD are intended to be used for home and small offices and are storage optimized for caching in NAS systems to rapidly access the most frequently used files. Although SSD are now cheaper than ever, WD realizes that traditional hard drives still give us more “Gigabyte per dollar” so HDD are still recommended for bigger capacity storage. Furthermore, the highest capacity of the new WD Red SA500 SSD is 4TB which is usually not sufficient for most users of network attached storage.

WD Red SA500 SSD are specifically designed and tested for every-day all-day usage and have shown superior endurance for heavy read and write loads demanded by NAS to provide the highest reliability. They use a tiered caching structure to improve write performance and endurance with a DDR DRAM cache and a SLC flash write cache to buffer data before accessing the main storage cells based on TLC NAND flash. This result in an endurance rating of up to 2500 TBW (TB written) and the mean time to failure is listed as up to 2 million hours – more than 200 years. The new WD Red SSD deliver sequential read speeds of up to 560 MB/s and sequential write rates of 530 MB/s to be four times faster than normal hard drives – while using less power to be more energy efficient.

The WD Red SA500 SATA SSD in compact M.2 form factor are available with 500GB, 1TB and 2TB while the 2.5” model is additionally offered with 4TB.

After extensive compatibility testing with many different models, the WD Red SA500 SATA SSD are drop-in ready for every current Thecus NAS (and even many older models) to accelerate data transfer and provide a viable alternative for speed-hungry or impatient NAS users.
