OVERVIEW

Engineered for the Extreme Demands of 24/7 Surveillance Systems


WD Purple™ surveillance storage features Western Digital’s exclusive AllFrame™ technology, so you can confidently create a security system tailored to the needs of your business. AllFrame technology improves ATA streaming, helping to reduce errors, pixelation, and other video interruptions that could happen in a video recording system.

WD Purple drives have an enhanced workload rating that supports systems built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. WD Purple 8TB, 10TB, 12TB, 14TB, and 18TB capacities feature AllFrame AI™ technology that enables an additional 32 streams for Deep Learning analytics within the system.
