SkyHawk AI 20TB NVRs HDD
This manual describes the functional, mechanical and interface specifications for the following:
Seagate® SkyHawk® AI Serial ATA +Rescue drive models.
These drives provide the following key features:
256 MB data buffer.
7200 RPM spindle speed.
Full-track multiple-sector transfer capability without local processor intervention.
High instantaneous (burst) data-transfer rates (up to 600MB per second).
Native Command Queuing with command ordering to increase performance in demanding applications.
PowerChoice™ for selectable power savings
Perpendicular recording technology provides the drives with increased areal density.
SeaTools™ diagnostic software performs a drive self-test that eliminates unnecessary drive returns.
State-of-the-art cache and on-the-fly error-correction algorithms.
Support for S.M.A.R.T. drive monitoring and reporting.
Supports latching SATA cables and connectors.
Top Cover Attached motor for excellent vibration tolerance
Worldwide Name (WWN) capability uniquely identifies the drive.
NOTE Seagate recommends validating the configuration with the selected HBA/RAID
controller manufacturer to ensure use of full capacity is supported
ST models. -ST20000VE000 and ST20000VE002
Bytes per logical sector – 512 (Default)
2.10.1 Annualized Failure Rate (AFR) and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
The production disk drive shall achieve an annualized failure-rate of 0.44% (MTBF of 2,000,000 hours) over a 5 year
service life when used in Enterprise Storage field conditions as limited by the following:
8760 power-on hours per year.
HDA temperature as reported by the drive <= 30°C
Ambient wet bulb temp <= 26°C
The AFR (MTBF) is a population statistic not relevant to individual units
ANSI/ISA S71.04-2013 G2 classification levels and dust contamination to ISO 14644-1 Class 8 standards (as
measured at the device)
The MTBF specification for the drive assumes the operating environment is designed to maintain nominal drive
temperature and humidity. Occasional excursions in operating conditions between the rated MTBF conditions and
the maximum drive operating conditions may occur without significant impact to the rated MTBF. However continual
or sustained operation beyond the rated MTBF conditions will degrade the drive MTBF and reduce product reliability.
