Video Security and Surveillance providers are being challenged by increasing requirements for higher resolution (HD), longer retention (more storage capacity), higher frame rates from more cameras (higher Mbps throughput), and advanced features such as video search and facial recognition.
Additionally, video surveillance workflow is highly event driven; meaning demands on underpinning server and storage infrastructure can vary widely. A system that normally performs 99% of its I/O as writes may suddenly require priority retrieval or analysis of archived video. To properly support this environment, the underlying storage system must be high-performance, and dependably respond to such workload shifts immediately—without impacting video capture performance.
Last, but not least, not every organization requiring video-surveillance systems can provide a data-center grade environment with well-regulated power and filtered, temperature-controlled air.
