Western Digital are thousands of people worldwide working to enable you to store, collect, access, and use a vast and growing body of digital information. Their reliable hard drives and solid state drives, marketed under the WD and HGST brands, are everywhere that digital information and content is found: in the cloud, supporting your mobile digital lifestyle; in business and personal computers; in external storage devices; in the digital video recorder in your home; and in sophisticated medical, military, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing and telecommunications systems. They also make media players that enable you to enjoy your digital content on the biggest screen in your house – your TV. Their customers range from some of the largest companies in the world to individual users like you.
With the acquisition of Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST), now a wholly owned subsidiary of Western Digital Corporation, they have expanded R&D resources, a broader product portfolio, greater manufacturing scale and a larger geographic footprint. With two successful independent subsidiaries, WD and HGST, they expect to accomplish great things as they build the new WD to be the world’s leading storage solutions provider.
