Approved Hard Drives

In consideration of the variety of situations methods that Digital Watchdog products may be deployed in, hard drives and other internal hardware are tested and approved by our product teams for use with the VMAX® Series and DW Blackjack® Series recording units. This assures that the system hardware is compatible and to mitigate any known hardware problems from previous model generations.

This article will list the hard drive storage drive models that are used in Digital Watchdog products.

**DISCLAIMER:  The list of approved hardware parts is subject to change at the discretion of Digital Watchdog.

**NOTE:  Products missing from the list below are either incapable of onsite hardware maintenance or may have reached an End of Life (EOL) status or an End of Support Life (EOSL) status.

Storage Drive Uniformity

There are instances where multiple hard drives can be simultaneously used by a recording server. for a This is typically done to increase the overall storage capacity of the server or to create redundancies with a RAID configuration to avoid data loss by creating a storage redundancy.  Additionally, the use of multiple drives is also acceptable for current models of VMAX standalones as well – as long as all of storage drives that are used are of a uniform size.

When using multiple drives in a single unit, it is recommended to use the same HDD model for all HDD enclosures to ensure that the disk storage capacity and read/write speeds are the same across all of the system’s storage drives. Differences in capacity and read/write speed can lead to issues

**NOTE:  It is typically recommended to avoid increasing the recording server size beyond the maximum storage capacity of the largest storage size among model stock option.  For example, the VMAX IP Plus 16-channel model can support up to 20TB of storage, but the VMAX IP Plus 4-channel model can only support up to 10TB of storage due to differences in hardware components.
