Seagate Releases New 8TB Drive For Surveillance

Seagate announced at the China Public Security Expo 2015 in Shenzhen, China the world’s first 8TB surveillance hard drive disk – the largest drive of its kind for surveillance applications in the industry.

The drive is designed for surveillance system integrators, end users and system installers. The 3.5-inch drive is engineered to run 24/7 and can store over 800 hours of high-definition content captured by up to 64 cameras simultaneously.

The drive incorporates rotational vibration sensors enabling it to reliably perform in systems with eight or more drives, as seen in network video recorder markets.

The new drives come with Seagate Rescue Service. This can typically restore data within two weeks depending on the type of recovery— with a greater than 90 percent success rate. Activated at time of purchase, the rescue plan provides three years of data recovery at the fraction of what it would cost to recover data.
