Seagate Technology, a world suplier in storage solutions, announced it has launched its Seagate Rescue data recovery services in Taiwan for the Seagate surveillance family of drives. The Seagate Rescue services will be delivered in partnership with ShinSoft, Everfocus, NUUO and key surveillance solutions providers in Taiwan.
Seagate is the first storage solutions provider to offer a complete protection plan that covers drive replacement and data recovery services. This protection plan covers data recovery services at a fraction of the cost of data recovery services purchased after the event, and keeps systems in the field longer and reduces post-deployment expenses.
Activated at time of purchase, Seagate Rescue services provide three years of data recovery for data that may be lost due to physical damage, corruption or accidental deletion. A fast and easy recovery process, Seagate Rescue services can typically restore data within two weeks depending on the type of recovery— with up to a greater than 90% success rate in data recovery.
Engineered specifically for surveillance and video analytics applications, Seagate’s surveillance drives are available in capacities ranging from 1TB to 4TB, with 5TB and 6TB configurations soon to be released in Taiwan.
“Over 50% of users who had an accident with their drive have experienced data loss,” said Balaji Thangaraj, vice president for research at Boston Analytics. “The Seagate Surveillance HDD with Seagate Rescue services provides consumers and system integrators alike with the critical reliability they expect in an easy, affordable solution, enabling them to gain peace of mind that their content is protected.”
“The video surveillance data is invaluable to the user to either meet industry regulations or leverage for content analysis or security— so when data loss occurs it’s an expense to the customer,” said Rex Dong, managing director of Asia, Seagate Technology. “We are delighted to offer Seagate Rescue services to Taiwanese customers with leading surveillance solutions providers like ShinSoft and address these issues head on.”
“As our customers continue to demand higher video resolution and reliability for their data, Seagate offers us comprehensive surveillance solutions, combining Seagate’s high-capacity surveillance drives and Rescue services,” said Tony Sung, director of business division of ShinSoft. “Seagate Rescue gives a clear differentiator to our surveillance portfolios, enabling us to offer our customers the peace of mind for the extra protection of their data. We believe that with the integration of Seagate’s surveillance storage solutions, we can better deliver both data. ”
