    WD Purple™ drives are engineered specifically for surveillance to help withstand the elevated heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations within NVR environments. An average desktop drive is built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that’s tested for compatibility in a wide range of security systems, and some of our latest models have improved power efficiency. Exclusive AllFrame™ technology helps reduce frame loss and improve overall video playback.


      Designed for AI video analytics, SkyHawk AI supports up to 64 HD cameras and 32 additional AI streams while offering capacities up to 24 TB. It delivers zero dropped frames with ImagePerfect™ AI and has enterprise-class workload rates at 550 TB/yr for high reliability. When integrated into compatible NVR systems, these drives provide overall system reliability increases due to SkyHawk Health Management (SHM). In addition, SkyHawk drives include a robust three-year Rescue Data Recovery Services plan.
