Seagate SkyHawk Surveillance HDD (10TB) Review Discussion

4 posts in this topic

The Seagate SkyHawk is a HDD designed specifically for surveillance with firmware that helps to minimize dropped frames and downtime. The drive comes in multiple capacity from a small as 1TB up to a huge 10TB (currently the highest capacity surveillance drive on the market). Not only is the drive quoted as being able to handle three times the workload of a desktop drive, it is also optimized explicitly for NVRs and DVRs.

 

Seagate SkyHawk Surveillance HDD (10TB) Review

In the last graph (128K throughput) the vertical label is KB/sec. The SkyHawk's numbers range from 364,723 to 462,498 KB/sec. Or 364 MB/s to 462 MB/s. But Seagate's specs near the beginning of the article claim a max sustained throughput of 210 MB/s. Cache might speed things up, but this much of an increase seems doubtful.

I'm guessing the numbers are really Bytes/sec, or is the SkyHawk cache as effective as shown?

The figures shown are for a group of 8 Skyhawk HDDs in a RAID10 config inside a Synology DS1815+. We don't test the drive alone, since noone is going to have just 1 NAS drive.
