The WD Gold hard drives are launching in capacities up to 8TB and offer HelioSeal helium-technology for performance, ideal capacity per square foot, power efficiency and low power consumption for datacenter environments. As such, WD indicates that their new datacenter hard drives are optimized to help reduce the TCO of servers and storage systems, allowing IT administrators to overcome growing storage capacity needs without going over budget. WD Gold hard drives will also include a premium dedicated support line for customers worldwide.

One would assume 7200 RPM, especially with helium. WD marketing to hide the RPM is one of my pet peeves.

Is anyone else getting tired of an HD color for every season? They only need 3 grades (low-5400, medium-7200, high-7200+heavier frame). Other characteristics like retry-policy for RAID use could be set in software or via jumpers.
