Get the inside scoop on how SkyHawk Health Management (SHM) enables your customers to proactively manage the health of their Hikvision NVR systems!
Give your NVR surveillance customers added peace of mind thanks to SkyHawk Health Management (SHM), recently unveiled at the China Public Security Expo. Now available on compatible Hikvision NVR 4.0 OS systems*, SHM is embedded software designed for prevention, intervention, and recovery on 4TB, 6TB, 8TB, and 10TB** SkyHawk drives. SHM helps your customers manage the health of their drives, and provides seamless access to data recovery services should a catastrophic event damage a drive.
SHM focuses on three key capabilities—prevention, intervention and recovery:
- Prevention: SHM monitors a wide variety of operating conditions and recommends preventive actions—such as temperature control and vibration control—to help protect your customers’ data.
- Intervention: SHM analyzes multiple internal performance parameters to determine drive health status; if drive health is deemed compromised, the NVR OS may recommend backup to ensure data availability
- Recovery: With optional access to industry-leading Seagate Data Recovery Services, customers can rest assured they have top experts working in a highly-secure environment to recover their data.
** 10TB will be available with next NVR 4.0 refresh
New Video Highlights SHM Benefits
To help your sales team and customers better understand the benefits of SHM, we’ve created a new video that conveniently summarizes how SHM’s prevention, intervention and recovery capabilities enable users to seamlessly manage the health of the drives—and gain access to data recovery services should a catastrophic event damage the drive.
Hikvision Emphasizes Added Protection with SHM
Explains a spokesperson at Hikvision, “As our customers continue to store massive amounts of critical surveillance data, they need to be able to take the necessary steps to manage storage health and proactively prevent data loss. Partnering with Seagate to integrate the SkyHawk Health Management software enables us to equip our customers with the tools they need to protect their data, monitor critical drive health and recover data in the case of a flood or fire.”
