Western Digital WD360GD36GB Serial ATA Hard Drive

The exploding growth of enterprise data storage puts tremendous pressure on IT managers, who must accommodate ever-greater volume with ever-tighter budgets. This increased need for enterprise storage, coupled with the decline in IT budgets, creates a need for reliable, low-cost solutions. Enter Serial ATA (SATA), a new interface developed with enterprise storage in mind. Some hard drive companies design desktop-class hard drives with the SATA interface, but WD is going one better. To meet the demands of enterprise storage, Western Digital is the only company to combine an enterprise-class hard drive with the SATA interface to meet all the demands of the enterprise environment—reliability, performance, and reduced cost.

A New Breed Of Hard Drive
Serial ATA is poised to replace Parallel SCSI in the mid-range, but only if there's a drive that can meet the performance and reliability requirements of that market. That drive is the WD Raptor! The WD Raptor is a new class of hard drive that matches SCSI performance and reliability and provides simplified connectivity, all at up to 30 percent less cost than Parallel SCSI drives.


  • Built for speed, the WD Raptor has 10,000 RPM rotational disk speed and 5.2 ms average data seek times.
  • Built for reliability, it has a rugged, enterprise-class mechanical platform with high-end bearings and actuator.
  • Built to last, this Enterprise SATA (ESATA) hard drive is made for years of high-performance operation around the clock. MTBF has been calculated at 1.2 million hours.
  • Built for value, WD Raptor is priced up to a third lower than Parallel SCSI enterprise hard drives.
