Seagate unveils 8TB drive for surveillance applications
New HDD delivers highest capacity storage for surveillance
Storage solutions and components vendor, Seagate Technology has announced the launch of the first 8TB surveillance hard drive disk (HDD), the largest drive of its kind within its product line for surveillance applications.
Targeted at surveillance systems integrators, end users and system installers, the Seagate Surveillance HDD offers the highest capacity on the market, tailor made for surveillance storage to keep systems in the field longer and reduce post-deployment support.
"Seagate has worked closely with the top surveillance manufacturers to evolve the features of our Surveillance HDD products and deliver a customised solution that has precisely matched market needs in this evolving space for the last 10 years," said Matt Rutledge, Seagate's senior vice president, client storage. "With HD recordings now standard for surveillance applications, Seagate's Surveillance HDD product line has been designed to support these extreme workloads with ease and is capable of a 180TB/year workload, three times that of a standard desktop drive. It also includes surveillance-optimised firmware to support up to 64 cameras and is the only product in the industry that can support surveillance solutions, from single-bay DVRs to large multi-bay NVR systems."
