Optimized for DVRs and NVRs, SkyHawk™ surveillance drives are tuned for 24x7 workloads in capacities up to 10TB. Equipped with enhanced ImagePerfect™ firmware, SkyHawk helps to minimize dropped frames and downtime with a workload rating 3× that of desktop drives while supporting up to 64 HD cameras.
Network video recorders (NVR)
Embedded surveillance DVRs (SDVR)
Hybrid surveillance DVRs
Built Tough. Stays Cool. Surveillance-optimized firmware improves reliability by up to 30% over traditional desktop drives.
3× the workload rating of desktop drives―up to 180TB/year.
SkyHawk drives use less power and generate less heat for extra-long lifecycles.
SkyHawk drives are ideal for the booming NVR market and RAID environments. Rotational vibration (R/V) sensors along with low power consumption and heat output ensure consistent performance in multi-drive enclosures.
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
Great workload allows SkyHawk to perform reliably in write-intensive surveillance systems - 3x the workload rating of a desktop-class drive
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
ATA streaming support sustains recordings from up to 64 HD cameras for smooth, uninterrupted footage
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
