Seagate Surveillance-Optimized Storage

Only Seagate has been making drives specifically for surveillance storage for ten years. SkyHawk™ is built to keep systems in the field longer and reduce the need for post-deployment support.

Key Advantages

  • 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 write-intensive surveillance systems—3× the workload rating of a desktop-class drive.
  • NVR-ready design allows 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.
  • ATA streaming support sustains recordings from up to 64 HD cameras for smooth, uninterrupted footage.
  • Up to 10TB or over 2000 hours of HD video storage supports an increased number of cameras and helps to ensure longer data retention periods are met.
  • 1M hours MTBF represents an improved total cost of ownership (TCO) with reduced maintenance costs.
  • Lower power consumption means a reduction in heat emissions, which improves reliability in surveillance solutions.
  • Tarnish-resistant components help protect drive from environmental elements, increasing field reliability.

Best-Fit Applications

  • Network video recorders (NVR)
  • Embedded surveillance DVRs (SDVR)
  • Hybrid surveillance DVRs
  • Surveillance DVRs


This drive is compatible with any server that accepts 3.5inx1.0in LFF SATA Drive.
