    Just like the Barracuda Pro and IronWolf/Pro lines the Skyhawk line of 3.5" hard disk drives by Seagate is part of their new Guardian series and currently includes models in 1/2/3/4/6/8/10TB capacities (4/6/8/10TB models support health management) which according to Seagate are optimized for use in digital and network video recorders (DVR/NVR) connected with up to 64 HD cameras. Just like the Barracuda Pro and IronWolf/Pro drives the Skyhawk is also a helium-filled drive based on the perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) that features a total of 7 platters (1.5TB in capacity each) that spin at 7200RPM along with a total of 256MB DRAM cache (1/2/3/4TB models only have 64MB). The Skyhawk line of HDDs also features Seagate's DVR/NVR tailored ImagePerfect firmware and ATA streaming support for seamless footage capture even from a total of 64 HD cameras, PowerChoice technology for reduced power consumption and Health Management which informs the user of imminent drive failure thus actively protecting your surveillance storage. Finally, Seagate covers the Skyhawk 10TB hard disk drive with a 3-year limited warranty and rates it for a workload of up to 180TB per year and an MTBF (mean time between failures) of 1 million hours.
