ImagePerfect™ firmware is designed to ensure seamless video footage capture in 24×7 surveillance workloads that record video from 64 HD cameras.
SkyHawk Health Management actively helps protect your surveillance storage by focusing on prevention, intervention and recovery options.
NVR-ready design allows drives to maintain performance in multi-bay systems, giving customers the flexibility to scale their systems when more storage is needed.
ATA streaming support enables recordings from up to 64 HD cameras for smooth, uninterrupted footage.
Up to 10 TB or over 2,000 hours of HD video storage support an increased number of HD cameras and allows longer data retention periods.
1 M hours MTBF, 3-year limited warranty 3 represents an improved total cost of ownership (TCO) with reduced maintenance costs.
Lower power consumption means a reduction in heat emissions, which improves reliability in surveillance solutions. Tarnish-resistant components help protect drive from environmental elements, increasing field reliability.
SkyHawk surveillance drives are designed for always-on workloads of 180 TB/year. For higher transaction workloads, see Seagate’s enterprise-class drive offerings.
Contact your Seagate sales representative for further information.
SkyHawk surveillance drives are designed to operate under ambient operating temperatures of 0°C to 60°C and normal environments. Usage of drives in higher temperatures or other extreme environmental conditions will reduce useful life.
