The advantages of SkyHawk

September 2018 Products, IT infrastructure

There are many reasons why surveillance storage needs to be correctly done with the correct equipment. It’s well known that up to 25% of users lose data annually and to combat this Seagate has specifically designed the SkyHawk range with the following features which work together to prevent data loss:

• The ImagePerfect firmware is designed to support 24/7 surveillance-optimised workloads.

• A workload rating of 180 TB/year allows skyhawk to perform reliably in write-intensive surveillance systems (three-times the workload rating of standard desktop-class drives).

• SkyHawk Health Management is specially designed software for HDD monitoring for prevention, intervention and recovery (works exclusively with Hikvision 4.0 recorders).

• Rescue Data Recovery Services allows the user to elect optional 2 or 3 year data recovery plan(s) in the event of HDD failure.

• ATA Streaming Support sustains recordings from up to 64 HD cameras for smooth, uninterrupted footage.

• Low Power Consumption means a reduction in heat emissions, which improves reliability in all surveillance solutions.
