Seagate Technology

Seagate Technology plc, a provider of data storage solutions, announced a new SkyHawk Health Management feature at the 14th China International Exhibition on Public Safety and Security 2018 in Beijing. SkyHawk Health Management (SHM) is the industry’s first embedded drive monitoring software designed for data prevention, intervention, and recovery with Seagate’s Skyhawk & SkyHawk AI surveillance-optimized hard drives in Network Video Recorder (NVR) and Digital Video Recorder (DVR) environments.

Developed by Seagate, SkyHawk Health Management was first launched last year and has seen rapid adoption by leading surveillance vendors including Hikvision, Dahua, Tiandy & Uniview.

Integrating RAID RapidRebuild technology

RAID RapidRebuild technology reduces system-level performance degradation so that the drive can be quickly brought back onlineSHM is built on proprietary AI algorithms that analyse drive parameters on an on-going basis and enable end users to manage the health life of the drive. With information on operating and environmental conditions, SHM recommends preventive measures and possible interventions depending on current drive health in order to help preserve customers’ critical surveillance data.

SkyHawk Health Management now integrates RAID RapidRebuild technology. This exclusive Seagate technology helps the user rapidly extract the intact data from the drive before beginning a RAID recovery. Only the unreadable data from the drive is rebuilt using the traditional RAID method. Critically, RAID RapidRebuild technology reduces system-level performance degradation so that the drive can be quickly brought back online.

Reducing outage risks

Already popular with surveillance vendors, this new version of SkyHawk Health Management integrates RAID RapidRebuild technology and can result in up to three times faster rebuilds, thus saving users lots of time and reducing outage risks. This gives vital peace of mind to customers seeking to protect data integrity in the RAID environment,” said Sai Varanasi, Seagate’s vice president of product line marketing.

RAID RapidRebuild technology’s feature is available through SkyHawk Health Management on compatible surveillance systems
