0107Keeping in mind the video storage challenges in the small business and consumer category, SkyHawkSeagate has launched a new linSkyhawk hard drive which is a rebrand of the previous Sv35 series video surveillance hard drive.
This has been launched under Seagate’s Guardian Series that consists of BarraCuda Pro desktop drive, the Seagate IronWolf for NAS applications and the Seagate Skyhawk for video surveillance systems.
These high-capacity disks, including the Seagate SkyHawk, come with a storage capacity of up to 10TB, which is a 2TB increase over the capacity of its previous hard drives in the small business and consumer category.
SkyHawk is efficiently designed for video surveillance systems. The new lineup has a spindle speed of 7,200rpm and comes with a storage capacity of up to 10TB for storing up to 10,000 hours of HD video.
It also comes with ImagePerfect firmware from multi-tier caching technology with an aim to maximise performance. The primary purpose of the firmware is to power down the drive when not in use in a bid to reduce heat generation and excessive power consumption. The HDD then powers up quickly to provide the uninterrupted recording.
The Skyhawk drives use rotational vibration sensors to help minimize read or write errors quite similar to that of IronWolf. Designed for modern, high-resolution systems running 24X7, Skyhawk drives also come with a data recovery services option.
The 10TB Skyhawk HDD also supports up to 180TB worth of data writes per year and has a three-year limited warranty.
The IronWolf series also has multi-tier caching technology, aimed to maximize performance, particularly when it comes to random writes. It provides an 180TB/year user workload rate.
