To work well in a NAS environment (up to 8 hard drives in a bay network storage), these drives come with a special firmware called NASware 3.0 supposed to reduce vibration to extend the life of the units. WD uses a technology of material compensation to limit the oscillations of plates and vibration. The company offers three years warranty for these products against Red for Green only two models of the same size (5 and 6 TB). Note also that WD also sells Red Pro 5 and 6 TB (5 years warranty) for NAS bays can accommodate 8 to 16 discs.
  
Seagate, long stuck to 4TB, began to produce a small series of hard drives for 8TB tests among its main clients.
