Seagate has this week introduced a new 20TB HDD specifically created for artificial intelligence enabled video imaging and analytic systems. Supporting applications that require heavy workloads to process and analyze multiple streams and thousands of hours of video data. The SkyHawk AI 20 TB hard disk drive (HDD) expands the line of already existing hard disk drives available.
Seagate has constructed the 20TB HDD with ImagePerfect AI firmware, allowing the storage to provide zero dropped frames while supporting heavier workloads. “An enterprise-class drive, the new SkyHawk AI 20 TB features high reliability with two million hours mean time between failures (MTBF) and a 550 TB/year workload rate, supporting over three times the workload of standard VIA drives.”
