For businesses, Rescue services are included with the purchase of certain drives, including:
- Ultra Touch (external)
- One Touch (external)
- Iron Wolf (internal)
- SkyHawk (internal)

Data recovery market
The data backup and recovery market has an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8%, according to ICT’s “Data Backup and Recovery Market Report.” In 2021, the base year of the report, the data backup and recovery market was estimated at $9.69 billion, with a forecasted revenue of $22.22 billion by 2030. Seagate is one player in the recovery market; some of its primary competitors include data recovery vendors Ontrack, Gillware, and DriveSavers.
The recovery market is also filled with services that provide rapid data recovery. A 30-day recovery window will not suffice for enterprises operating under a tight recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO). Businesses that need to quickly recover data will likely not be a match for Rescue services as their main recovery source. Seagate’s data recovery services are set up to help companies recover their drive data over an extended period of time..
