Western Digital Offer Mobile SSD With 560 MB/s Speeds

Western Digital has introduced the G-DRIVE mobile SSD R-Series – an solid state drive with transfer speeds up to 560 MB/s. The idea is that this allows content creators to save and edit large photo, video and music files when working in the field.

Available in capacities up to 2TB, the drive is about a third of the size of traditional 2TB portable hard drives, which frees up space for other valuable production gear without compromising speed or capacity.

Additionally, Western Digital released a new SDK for its G-Technology 12-bay G-RACK NAS solution. Utilizing the SDK in the G-NAS OS App Portal, G-RACK some twelve third-party partners now have the capability to develop customized app functionality that can run natively on its dual 6-core Xeon processors.

A handful of key strategic G-Technology partners have already developed customized solutions running directly on the G-RACK, including Archiware, Avalanche.io, and axle Video.
