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.
