Western Digital Reveals New Storage Line

It is always great to see what they have at CES and this looks interesting.

WD has revealed a brand of premium storage solutions for
content creators and professionals. From producing the latest blockbuster film to
capturing the moment at a destination wedding to managing business-critical content,
the powerful SanDisk Professional portfolio is designed to deliver scalable,
high-performance, reliable solutions across industries globally.
Professional content is in constant motion. Content that's captured or created needs
to be saved, transferred, off-loaded, shared and archived. SanDisk Professional
offers a range of purpose-built tools to harmonize every step of that process.
"As a professional photographer and filmmaker, my livelihood depends on how I get
the job done. There is no room for error. I need the most advanced, reliable and
trusted equipment out in the field," said Lucas Gilman, adventure photographer and
filmmaker. "For years I've relied on SanDisk and G-Technology solutions because they
enable me to focus on the moment with confidence that my creativity won't be
interrupted, and without concern about whether or not they can keep up with my
technical needs."
Jim Welsh, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Solutions
business at Western Digital, said, "Our customers trust their life's work to our
products. We design and create solutions for every stage of the creative process,
harmonizing our customers' experience so they can save time and focus more on
creating. Expanding our brand family with SanDisk Professional allows us to offer
advanced solutions to people around the world who rely on the best technology
available for their inspiring work."
Born on the foundation of the company's world-renowned SanDisk(r) consumer brand and
its professional-grade G-Technology(tm) brand, the storage choice of Hollywood
professionals for decades, the new SanDisk Professional line features 16 modular
workflow solutions with professional-grade performance and enterprise-class
reliability that will include:

The new card is expected to be available this summer.
