Seagate Technology has unveiled a dedicated surveillance hard disk drive (HDD) featuring Seagate Rescue services—the Seagate Surveillance HDD.
Claimed as the industry first, Seagate Surveillance HDD is designed specifically for surveillance and video analytics applications.
The solution employs data recovery services designed to restore data from malice or accidental failure, keeping systems in the field longer and reducing post deployment expenses.
Worldwide over 413 petabytes of data are produced in just one day by video surveillance cameras installed worldwide in 2013. The data is invaluable for the company to meet industry regulations or leverage content analysis or security.
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.
A seventh-generation optimized surveillance HDD, the drive now expands to capacities of up to 6TB and can store up to 600 hours of high-definition (HD) content making it the industry’s highest-capacity drive designed specifically for surveillance applications.
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.
The drive 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.
Additionally Surveillance HDD is also engineered for low power consumption and heat emissions allowing solution providers greater design flexibility.
Seagate Surveillance HDD is available starting today in 1-4 TB capacities. Surveillance HDD in 5-6TB configurations will be available in by the end of 2014, the company said.
