Seagate SkyHawk 8TB Surveillance Hard Drive - ST8000VX004

Designed for NVR (network video recorders) and AI-enabled NVR systems, the 8TB SkyHawk AI 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Surveillance HDD from Seagate is well-suited for units with 16 or more drive bays.

Engineered for 24/7 workloads, or 8760 operational hours per year, this SkyHawk AI drive supports up to 64 HD cameras and 32 additional AI streams, or 16 AI channels.

Seagate's ImagePerfect AI technology helps to deliver zero dropped frames, while high reliability is backed by a workload rate of 550TB per year. Additionally, SkyHawk Health Management helps protect your surveillance storage by focusing on prevention, intervention, and recovery options.

Should you use this drive in a RAID, integrated RAID RapidRebuild technology helps provide faster volume rebuilds.

Seagate built this SkyHawk AI drive with storage capacity of 8TB and a 3.5" form factor, plus a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 256MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, all of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 235 MB/s.

Data reliability is further enhanced by 300,000 load/unload cycles, a 2 million hour MTBF, 1 per 1015 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, and an AFR (annualized failure rate) of 0.44%.

Please be aware that this drive comes in OEM packaging.
