WD Purple Surveillance Hard Drive - 3TB

WD Purple drives are engineered specifically for surveillance to help 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. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that’s tested for compatibility in a wide range of security systems, and some of our latest models (WD22PURZ, WD42PURZ, and WD63PURZ) have improved power efficiency. Exclusive AllFrame™ technology helps reduce frame loss and improve overall video playback.

Western Digital's Exclusive AllFrame Technology

All WD Purple drives are equipped with AllFrame technology, which improves ATA streaming to help reduce frame loss and improve overall video playback, within a multitude of security video solutions.

Enhanced Workload Ratings

WD Purple drives feature a workload rating of up to 180TB/year1 - up to three times that of desktop drives - to handle the unique demands of mainstream video surveillance DVR and NVR systems.

Multiple Cameras, Multiple Streams

Modern recorders now support multiple video streams per camera. WD Purple drives support up to 64 single-stream HD cameras (6TB2 and above), and can also support many of the latest cameras that transmit multiple streams to enable basic AI functionality. With so many options, you have the flexibility to upgrade or expand your security applications in the future.

Designed for Today's and Tomorrow's Surveillance Solutions

With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours3, WD Purple drives are engineered for mainstream surveillance DVRs and NVRs that operate 24/7. With tarnish-resistant components3 and support for more than eight bays4, WD Purple drives deliver reliable operation even in harsh environments.

Proactive Storage Management with WDDA

Western Digital Device Analytics (WDDA) provides a wealth of storage device parametric operational and diagnostic data to the system; algorithms interpret the data and direct the system to alert system administrators of specific recommended actions to address potential issues. WDDA is intended to empower OEMs, system integrators, and IT professionals to better monitor and proactively manage supported storage devices to maintain optimal operation.

Three-Year Limited Warranty

As an industry-leading hard drive manufacturer, Western Digital stands behind their surveillance storage solutions with a 3-year limited warranty included with every WD Purple drive.

WD Purple Surveillance Storage offers exclusive AllFrame technology to bring you premium reliability and peace-of-mind when installing your home or small to medium business security system. WD Purple's exclusive firmware upgrades work with ATA streaming to reduce error pixilation and video interruptions that occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems. WD Purple Surveillance Storage is built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition surveillance security systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras. You wouldn't use a bicycle to transport cargo across the country because it's not the right tool for the job. You also shouldn't use a desktop hard drive in your surveillance security system because it wasn't designed for that application. WD Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be compatible in a wide-range of security systems. These drives are designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for the harsh 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment. Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals and are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.
