Surveillance Storage from WD is built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition surveillance security systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras. Choose a drive that is designed and engineered for home and business surveillance systems and enjoy the peace-of-mind you can only get from a surveillance-class hard drive.

Desktop drives vs. surveillance-class storage:

You wouldn’t use a bicycle to transport cargo across the country because it’s not the right tool for the job. You also shouldn’t use a desktop hard drive in your surveillance security system because it wasn’t designed for that application. WD Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be compatible in a wide-range of security systems. These drives are designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for the harsh 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment. Your Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals. Unlike Surveillance Drives, they are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.

Built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With a supported workload rate of up to 180TB/Year and support for up to 64 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance systems.

The Right Drive for the Job
