Western Digital

We are thousands of people worldwide working to enable you to store, collect, access, and use a vast and growing body of digital information. Our 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; and in the digital video recorder in your home. We also make media players that enable you to enjoy your digital content on the biggest screen in your house – your TV. Our 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, we 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, we expect to accomplish great things as we build the new WD to be the world’s leading storage solutions provider.
