Seagate released a dedicated surveillance HDD featuring Seagate Rescue services. Engineered specifically for surveillance and video analytics applications, the Surveillance HDD is a drive that employs data recovery services designed to restore data from malice or accidental failure, keeping systems in the field longer and reducing post deployment expenses.
A fast and easy recovery process, Seagate Rescue services can typically restore data within two weeks depending on the type of recovery—with up to a greater than 90 percent success rate in data recovery.
Activated at time of purchase, the rescue plan provides three years of data recovery at the fraction of what it would cost to recover data lost due to anything from computer viruses to natural disasters and more.
“Over 50 percent of users who had an accident with their drive have experienced data loss,” said Balaji Thangaraj, vice president for research at Boston Analytics. “The Seagate Surveillance HDD with Seagate Rescue Services provides consumers and system integrators alike with the critical reliability they expect in an easy, affordable solution, enabling them to gain peace of mind that their content is protected.”
A seventh-generation optimized surveillance HDD, the drive now expands to capacities of up to 6TB and can store up to 600 hours of HD content making it the industry’s highest-capacity drive designed specifically for surveillance applications. Designed to scale video storage, the drive also incorporates options for rotational vibration (RV) sensors enabling it to reliably perform in systems with up to 16 drives, making it ideal for small-to-medium businesses, who typically do not have IT support, but where bulk storage for HD video and back up are highly valued.
Designed to support surveillance recordings from a number of cameras no matter their resolution requirements, Surveillance HDD supports up to 32 channels and easily handles the higher write workloads required by surveillance systems. The drive supports large streaming workloads for longer periods of time meeting industry archive and resolution demands.
These features, coupled with the optional R/V sensors and Seagate’s Rescue service, improve drive performance in multi-drive and RAID systems and increase the value of surveillance data by delivering the highest data integrity possible.
Boasting industry-leading reliability, the Surveillance HDD has a 1 million hour MTBF, (mean time between failure) allowing the product to be kept in the field longer while reducing the cost of field deployment and maintaining customer retention. The drive is also engineered for low power consumption and heat emissions allowing solution providers greater design flexibility.
