Adding Reliability to Digital Video Surveillance Storage

adding-reliability-to-DVS-storage-blog_main-gold-646x300Organizations across all industries are ramping up video surveillance in response to heightened physical security concerns and improved video technology. In turn, storing all of this surveillance footage has become a high-stakes activity because organizations require constant protection of its property, people and assets; if something goes wrong, security is compromised. As an IT professional, building a reliable storage infrastructure capable of supporting round-the-clock video surveillance has to be a top priority.

The Nexsan E-Series high-density storage system by Imation is a popular solution for video surveillance because it combines high-performance with reliability. In addition to efficiently managing terabytes of HD surveillance streams without dropping frames, E-Series includes three advanced features that improve reliability for IT professionals:

  1. Redundant components: By including redundant controllers, power supplies and fans, E-Series can keep systems running 24×7. This keeps your security system up and operational between a component failure and its replacement.
  2. ActiveDrawer Technology: This feature enables maintenance without interrupting system maintenance. New drives can be swapped in and out, and your security system stays operational all the while.
  3. CoolDrive Technology: This feature lowers system operating temperatures throughout recording to reduce the risk of losing a hard drive.

High reliability is essential for organizations that depend on digital video surveillance to provide always-on security. Here’s more on how you can build a storage infrastructure suitable for HD video surveillance.
