With the rise of AI applications in organizations, the efficiency of storing and accessing large datasets plays a crucial role in the performance and total cost of ownership (TCO). The Seagate SkyHawk AI 24TB is a specialized video-optimized drive crafted for network video recorders (NVRs) equipped with AI for edge security applications. It addresses the demands of modern systems, efficiently handling the analysis and recording of video footage while supporting GPU analytics simultaneously.

SkyHawk AI flexibly adapts to varied surveillance setups, handling up to 64 HD video camera streams and 32 additional AI streams. Specifically designed for NVR environments implementing AI in edge security applications, it can manage 10,000 hours of video and analytics. This includes the demanding workloads of AI-enabled 24/7 surveillance systems, ensuring seamless performance with Seagate’s robust ImagePerfect AI firmware and preventing any dropped frames.

SkyHawk AI is a reliable enterprise-grade solution, boasting up to 2.5 million hours of mean time between failures (MTBF) and a 550TB/year workload rate. This workload rate is three times that of regular surveillance hard drives and up to ten times more than desktop hard drives.

SkyHawk Health Management, available in compatible NVR systems, actively monitors environmental and usage conditions, suggesting preventative actions as needed. The tool also features RAID RapidRebuild, enabling volumes to be rebuilt up to three times faster than standard hard drives. The drive comes with a five-year limited product warranty and three years of Seagate’s Rescue Data Recovery Service.
