Western Digital Launches WD Purple Ultra Endurance microSD Card For Security Cameras

Western Digital has introduced the WD Purple SC QD101 Ultra Endurance microSD card to optimize storage for Artificial Intelligence-enabled 4K security video cameras. The WD Purple SC QD101 microSD card features 96-layer 3D NAND technology. It delivers a cost-effective combination of ultra-endurance, high-performance storage, and a wide capacity range of up to 512GB. It is available in capacities of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB for the growing security video market. This microSD card is ideal for backup/failover on-camera storage and continuous recording. With the help of the card health monitor in compatible cameras, it provides the ability to gauge the remaining endurance and preemptively service the card if needed.

Enterprises can leverage WD Purple microSD cards for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems, low bit-rate recording. This microSD card is robust with humidity resistance and an operating temperature of -25°C to 85°C.

According to Western Digital, customers are looking for high-endurance, high-capacity, robust, on-camera storage for a variety of public safety and AI analytics use-cases as security cameras typically use a long, continuous recording. This WD Purple microSD card will help handle these exciting new and varied visual workloads at the edge. This long-lasting, cost-effective storage solution fills a gap for low-end and broad mainstream surveillance camera applications previously serviced by retail and commercial microSD cards. This WD Purple microSD card is ideal for mainstream recording, and on-camera backup storage if a camera loses its connection to an NVR and is designed for 24×7 continuous write workloads.

Western Digital’s WD Purple portfolio of storage devices are designed with specifically-chosen attributes to deliver reliable performance in mainstream security video systems that operate 24/7. These purpose-built solutions offer high quality and long-lasting storage for workloads that consumer microSD cards and desktop-grade hard drives are not specifically designed for, adds the statement of WD.
