NAS storage is serious business, not just for the enterprise market, but also for personal and SOHO NAS. NAS for SOHO/Personal is HUGE! There’s Synology, QNAP, Thecus, Drobo, Buffalo- even Seagate has their OWN NAS lineup.

Considering that before WD RED arrived, no1 really catered to this market, people pretty much picked 7200.xx Seagate drives and/or WD Blue/Green ruled everything. NAS usually maintains a lot smaller footprint over desktop systems and for a lot of applications and uses it was more convenient, depending on what NAS you’re choosing to vary from 1 to up to 5 NAS bay drives.  WD introduced the red series specifically catering to the NAS storage lineup. While they’re not really full-fledged enterprise drive, they had error correction and they were cooler, far more than load/unload cycle and Power-on rating, followed by error correction which seemed to make a lot of sense for personal headless server/NAS for personal or SOHO use- file sharing, back-up… list goes on.

Its just a matter of time the other hard drive manufacturers (the ones that are still around making drives under their own brand name anyways) would catch up.

…and Seagate brought in their NAS HDD with a 4TB capacity drive!
