Western Digital Device Analytics (WDDA), is a new device analytics capability supported by Western Digital’s line of surveillance-optimized storage products. WDDA enables administrators to proactively manage storage and to maintain optimal performance to preempt unexpected failures.
Security is paramount in today’s 24x7 world and robust surveillance helps provide that security and peace of mind. Unfortunately, continuous surveillance recording can be interrupted by unexpected events, including power outage/disruption, surveillance equipment failure, network infrastructure disruption, and even storage device failure.
While rare, storage failure can occur, resulting in a reduction in the total recording duration and the failover recording may be compromised. If repair or replacement of the storage device is required, it may result in recording downtime, a short-term security vulnerability, and unexpected expenses incurred because of special support or services.

Features & Benefits
The new Western Digital Device Analytics (WDDA) provides for the proactive monitoring of the storage subsystem to preempt unexpected disruptions. When implemented in a surveillance solution, it analyzes the operational parameters and the data from the embedded device sensors. This persistent monitoring enables the detection of problematic operating conditions and reports such conditions to the system administrators; it also suggests predefined actions that can be taken to maintain optimal operation of the storage devices.
1. All HDDs continuously report WDDA operational data to the NVR
2. One HDD reports abnormal parametric data, NVR analyzes
3. NVR uses historical inference to recommend specific action
4. System administrator executes the recommended action
5. All HDDs report normal parametric data
6. System continues normal operation; problem avoided
Proper use of WDDA to proactively manage storage in a surveillance system can result in key benefits, including:
With Western Digital surveillance-optimized storage, surveillance is more than just seeing: It is looking ahead. Capture, store, and analyze data with edge-to-core solutions that adapt to new innovations. We offer an uncompromising line of surveillance solutions.
