50 Security Business / / March 2019 potential points of failure, which also contributes to overall reliability. In light of the increased role of video in providing intelligence, whether for security or operations, it is also important to note that sur- veillance-optimized drives are more capable than their lower-cost cous- ins of supporting AI streams that contain the knowledge tied to every frame, which is used for deep learn- ing applications while simultaneously mized for high performance with both seek- and write-caching firmware, and this increased write functionality sig- nificantly contributes to favorable per- formance and drive longevity. In addi- tion to writing at a very high speed, these drives also enable users to read back video and data at a high speed at the same time, rather than having to choose between reading and writing the data at any given time. Power consumption is another area where these solutions excel by offering energy-conservation fea- tures, such as the ability to place any drive within a system into power-sav- ing mode when it is not actively in use. is significantly enhances system cooling efficiency, boosting overall system reliability. With fewer drives required to provide needed storage capacity, there are fewer Video Surveillance managing video streams. is knowl- edge enables information to be located more precisely and efficiently to enable more intelligent decisions. Health Monitoring Drive health monitoring is also important for continuous data integ- rity and reliability. at said, integra- tors should make storage solutions that include custom features to intel- ligently deal with potential issues part of any security solution to ensure maximum uptime and availabil- ity of video. To monitor drive health, so- ware analyzes parameters to gather information on operating and environmental conditions, such as temperature, vibration and other factors. Armed with this data, its AI algorithms rec- ommend preventative measures and potential interventions depending on a drive's current health. If the drive has deterio- rated, the solution may recom- mend a full backup to prevent video and data loss. Drive health monitoring empowers users to prevent, intervene and recover from potential anomalies, ensuring long-term durability and the abil- ity to operate in harsh environ- ments, withstanding a variety of temperature changes. ■ » Jessica Burton is Global Surveillance Product Manager for Seagate Technology.
