Seagate Technology Public Limited Company Delivers New Surveillance Hard Disk Drive Featuring Recovery Services
Sep 29 14
Seagate Technology plc took the wraps off the first dedicated surveillance hard disk drive (HDD) featuring Seagate Rescue(TM) services--the Seagate(R) Surveillance HDD. Engineered specifically for surveillance and video analytics applications, the Surveillance HDD is a world-class 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% 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. 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. 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 high data integrity possible.
