PRODUCT MESSAGING
Smart. Safe. Secure.
Seagate Surveillance-Optimized Storage
SkyHawk™ is built to keep systems in the field longer and reduce the need for
post-deployment support. With 1M hours MTBF and a 3-year limited warranty, the
SkyHawk HDD delivers an improved total cost of ownership (TCO) with reduced
maintenance costs. Plus, lower power consumption means a reduction in heat
emissions, meaning consistent performance.
The SkyHawk HDD is a best-fit for the following applications with a workload
rating of up to 180TB/year:
• Network video recorders (NVR)
• Embedded surveillance DVRs (SDVR)
• Hybrid surveillance DVRs
• Surveillance DVRs
Why choose the SkyHawk™ HDD?
ImagePerfect™ firmware supports 24×7 surveillance-optimized workloads tuned
to record ~90% of the time and play back video footage the remaining 10%, and
supports more cameras recording at higher resolutions than traditional drives.
Workload rating of 180TB/year allows SkyHawk to perform reliably in writeintensive surveillance systems—3× the workload rating of a desktop-class drive.1
Rotational Vibration (RV) sensors allow drives to maintain performance in RAID
and multi-drive systems, giving customers the flexibility to grow with the booming
NVR market and scale their systems when more storage is needed.2
Up to 10TB or 10,000 hours of HD video storage supports an increased number
of cameras and helps to ensure longer data retention periods are met.
1 SkyHawk surveillance drives are designed for always-on workloads of 180TB/year. For higher transaction workloads, see
Seagate’s enterprise-class drive offerings.
2 Rotational Vibration (RV) sensors and tarnish-resistant components are offered standard on capacities of 4TB or greater.
