Seagate caters to all the requirements that support the modern-day surveillance systems, which now have specific requirements that differ from regular IT storage. Surveillance companies are looking for high bandwidth and high I/O solutions. High I/O drives like Seagate’s groundbreaking MACH.2 multi-actuator hard drive design has gained prominence. Through MACH.2, it is possible to move more input and output through the unit more rapidly, and double the performance of data-intensive applications without sacrifices in latency.
Sameer Bhatia, Director Asia Pacific Consumer Business Group and Country Manager SAARC & India, Seagate Technology thinks surveillance is one of the fastest growing segments outside of the cloud and data centers, moving from being an endpoint application to an edge application. India has become one of the most prominent and fast-growing market within APJ region for video surveillance.
At Seagate, they understand that the drive capacity is a key consideration for high-quality surveillance solutions geared for multi-site environments due to increased storage requirements. He explains, “With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) and its ability to enable deeper analytics, video surveillance systems can now provide many additional benefits outside of their traditional applications including - heat detection, motion detection and other behavior analytics. A video-based security system is as good as the storage infrastructure behind it, and therefore, an efficient video surveillance system for an organization requires a robust and purpose-built storage infrastructure such as the offerings from Seagate. A notable example in this regard is the Seagate SkyHawk surveillance hard drive. Leveraging 24×7 workloads up to 16TB with drives designed for DVR and NVR systems, SkyHawk surveillance drives enable better performance in video surveillance environments via enhanced ImagePerfect and are equipped with drive-monitoring software - SkyHawk Health Management - designed for prevention, intervention, and recovery. These innovations help customers sail through their toughest challenges.”
