Seagate Technology, one of the world’s leading storage solutions companies, has recently teamed up with IoT solution and service provider, Dahua Technology to deliver the next wave of highly intelligent video surveillance servers.

Through the DAHUA IVSS and Skyhawk AI (products of each company), Seagate and Dahua aims to make cities smarter and safer.

 

To make this dream of “Smart Cities” a reality, Seagate presented the Skyhawk and Skyhawk AI, the first drive created specifically for artifcial intelligence enabled video surveillance solutions. SkyHawk AI provides bandwidth and processing power to manage always-on, data-intensive workloads, while simultaneously analyzing and recording footage from 64 HD cameras and support 16 AI cameras with minimized dropped frames, reduced downtime and can withstand 24/7 operations.

On Dahua’s end, the company made an early start in AI applications and has since made several achievements in the industry with the launch of their IVSS series. Through this partnership, Seagate’s advanced technology complements Dahua’s data storage challenges with their facial recognition, ANPR, PFA and other advanced video analytics advanced features.  In addition, this strategic partnership between Dahua Technology and Seagate can boost the AI application across the surveillance industry
