|Seagate Unveils New Surveillance Hard Disk Drive|
Seagate Technology introduces the first dedicated surveillance hard disk drive (HDD). Made precisely for surveillance and video analytics applications, the Surveillance HDD employs data recovery and restoration services designed from malicious or accidental failure.
This device is equipped with Seagate Rescue services which can help restore data within two weeks at a success rate of greater than 90 percent. This system provides a data rescue plan of up to three years, but for the fraction of the cost.
The seventh-generation Seagate Surveillance HDD can store up to 6TB of data which is equivalent to 600 hours of high-definition (HD) content. Easily, this makes it highest-capacity drive designed specifically for surveillance applications in the industry.
It is also designed to scale video feeds and has options for rotational vibration sensors to make it perform well with systems of up to 16 drives. This feature works well for small-to-medium businesses that do not have IT support, but highly value bulk storage and backup for surveillance HD videos.
The Seagate Surveillance HDD can support recordings from several cameras, despite resolution requirements. It can also support up to 32 channels even if they have high write workloads. Even in the long run, this hard disk drive improves performance in multi-drive systems and delivers the highest data integrity possible.
The Seagate Surveillance HDD also has a 1 million hour mean time between failure, which allows it to be used without error for a long time. It is also designed to run on low power and reduce heat emissions. At present, the 1 TB to 4 TB versions of the Surveillance HDD are already available. By the end of 2014, the 5 TB and 6 TB versions will be released.
