The right drive for the right job.
WD Purple drives have been engineered specifically for surveillance, so they're able to withstand the elevated heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations within NVR environments. An average desktop drive is built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. A disruption to a drive could result in a failure that impacts multiple users, your security archive, or even the entire system. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that's tested for compatibility in a wide-range of security systems.

Industry-leading storage. Surveillance you can trust.
Western Digital is a worldwide leader in the hard drive industry. With WD Purple surveillance storage, you have a drive engineered for high temperature, always-on surveillance systems so you can rely on quality video playback when you need it most. Whether you're protecting loved ones or monitoring your business, WD Purple offers performance you can trust.

Western Digital's exclusive AllFrame technology
All WD Purple drives are equipped with AllFrame technology, which improves ATA streaming to help reduce frame loss, improve overall video playback, and increase the number of hard drive bays supported within a NVR. Help make your surveillance solution future-ready knowing that WD Purple drives are ready for ultra high definition cameras. WD Purple capacities up to 6TB feature AllFrame 4K technology enabling high quality recording for up to 64 cameras. WD Purple 8TB, 10TB and 12TB capacities feature AllFrame AI technology that enables not only recording up to 64 cameras, but also supports an additional 32 streams for Deep Learning analytics within the system.

Enhanced workload rating
WD Purple drives with AllFrame 4k technology feature a workload rating of up to 180TB/year - up to three times that of desktop drives - to handle the unique demands of modern video surveillance DVR and NVR systems. WD Purple drives with AllFrame AI technology feature a workload rating up to 360TB/year to support the Deep Learning analytics that are features in AI capable NVRs.

Expand your view to 64
Each WD Purple drive is optimized to support up to 64 cameras. With so many options, you have the flexibility to upgrade or expand your security system in the future.

Designed for today's and tomorrow's surveillance solutions

With support for more than eight bays? and tarnish resistant components***, WD Purple drives deliver reliable operation in large scale surveillance systems in harsh environments.
