High performance and high capacity for computing

The Western Digital PC SA530 combines Western Digital’s state-of-the-art 96-layer 3D NAND technology with the proven SSD platform. It also incorporates nCache™ 2.0, a tiered caching technology designed to improve responsiveness for corporate and consumer workloads. nCache 2.0 uses a combination of both SLC (single level cell) and TLC flash blocks to improve endurance, increase efficiency, and boost performance.Writing data first to the SLC cache reduces write amplification on the TLC blocks.

With on-the-fly hardware-based encryption, the Western Digital PC SA530 (SED models only) provides complete end-to-end encryption to the storage, system and infrastructure. It supports password protection, AES-256-bit encryption, TCG-OPAL 2.01 standard and PSID.
