WD debuts world's first SSD+HDD dual drive [T-break Tech (Middle East)]

(T-break Tech (Middle East) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WD today announced the release of the WD Black2 dual drive, a drive that fuses a 2.5-inch 120 GB SSD with a 1 TB HDD to offer a powerful dual drive solution. Perfect for consumers and service providers looking to upgrade notebooks, small form factor desktops, and single-slot and all-in-one (AIO) systems with both SSD level performance and HDD capacity, the WD Black2 dual drive connects through a single cable and fits into a conventional 9.5 mm slot.


"Our customers told us they like our Solid State Hybrid Drive technology, but our tech savvy users asked for more control of where they store their data," said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of WD's Storage Technology business unit. "The WD Black2 dual drives empower our customers to enjoy SSD performance and access high capacity storage in a no-compromise package. The WD Black2 dual drive is a direct result of our interaction with our customer base through WD Labs initiatives. WD devised its beta labs program to provide an exclusive testing arena for key customers and technology influencers of existing and emerging WD storage products.” The WD Black2 dual drive provides improved overall drive capacity, performance, and reliability, while offering the flexibility to choose how and where their data is stored. Utilizing the benefits of both flash and magnetic disks, WD Black2 dual drives offload data usage from the SSD to the HDD, which increases endurance and life of the SSD. The drive is free of caching algorithms and benefits from SATA 6 Gb/second interface speed. It measures a standard 9.5 mm, 2.5-inch form factor with legacy SATA connector, making it compatible with most major PC operating systems.
