Addressing New Surveillance Challenges

Today’s video surveillance and physical security infrastructures can often scale to 1000s of hi-res cameras that simultaneously capture and analyze video to be stored securely. In addition, VMS products are now being used to index this content, enabling powerful video search and analysis capabilities. Available storage infrastructure not only handle this sheer volume of data with ease, but also delivers streaming performance and real-time access to data, regardless of whether it’s on disk, tape, or in the cloud.

The combination of camera counts, retention requirements, and an increase in analytic tools results in more and more data being stored. In order to contain costs, the storage infrastructure must take advantage of multiple technologies like disk, tape, and the cloud. Available video surveillance storage includes intelligent software that automatically and transparently moves data to the most appropriate tier of storage at the right time, providing a powerful combination of high performance and lowest total cost of ownership.
