Seagate SkyHawk helps Rasilient eliminate dropped frames in IP surveillance
Because unwanted gaps in video surveillance data can have significant consequences, dropped frames are a key challenge with IP surveillance. Rasilient Systems, using Seagate SkyHawk drives, have come up with the perfect solution.
No Frame Drop technology
Rasilient’s patented NFD (no frame drop) technology eliminates recording gaps and helps drives self-heal. But they struggled to find an HDD suited to 24/7 video recording and retrieval – fortunately, Seagate’s development of surveillance-specific drives solved that problem!
To put SkyHawk through their qualification process, Rasilient set up 1,000 2-MO simulated cameras, streaming for 72 hours at 25 FPS at HD quality. "To make the test even harder and stress test the system even more, we increased the recording bandwidth to 2.1 GB/s. In the meantime, we simulated a disk failure by pulling a drive out of a live system, and again, no frame was dropped. SkyHawk is definitely a contributing factor to this success."
Lower disk failure rates
Seagate SkyHawk drives now form an integral part of Rasilient’s solution; in the words of Bing Wan, Director, Middle East Operations at Rasilient Systems:
"[SkyHawk] allowed us to lower the total cost of ownership and achieve great performance in largescale deployments. After switching to Seagate we have lower disk failure rates and have achieved a remarkable NFD during our solution partner certification with Milestone Systems Xprotect VMS"
