Security and Surveillance

Storage Solutions for CCTV and Video Surveillance

The capacity to support video surveillance applications grows exponentially due to increased camera resolutions, longer data retention as well as security through data replication.  Consistent and stable recording throughput is also crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped and all areas under surveillance are being monitored and safe from potential threats. The move to Networked Video Recording is founded on the transmission of digital camera feeds over IP based Storage Area Networks with the Network Video Recorder (NVR) being responsible for compression and storage of video streams to disk. The NVR(s) can be located anywhere on the network and make use of highly scalable RAID based storage arrays using either iSCSI or Fibre Channel storage area networks.

 In a large system with typically 90 days of recordings, the limitation on the NVR server will be its storage, not its processing power. It is important therefore to choose a storage solution that provides seamless scalability in both storage performance and capacity together with a flexible choice between high performance SAS or high capacity SATA disk drives. With so much valuable data being recorded it is also important to consider data security and reliability to ensure the failure of one or more disks does not result in data loss. RAID 6 protects against multiple simultaneous disk failures, redundant power supplies, controllers and hot swapable disk drives also provide the best data protection. With advanced data management software (DMS) such as snapshot and remote replication is it possible for users to analyse video data locally without  disturbing the master data copy. A reliable external Storage Area Networks (SAN) is a sure way to achieve performance, scalability and reliability. Infortren, Dot Hill and Promise offer a range of networked storage solutions specifically tailored to meet the unique demands of CCTV and Video Surveillance.  

For home and smaller business surveillance, a simpler, more cost effective solution is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) accompanied by a reliable, intuitive and easy to manage GUI. The Synology Surveillance Station delivers intelligent monitoring and video management tools  to help safeguard all the important locations in your life.

  •  SimulCache™ – Performance for video workloads CCTV systems present a very different data workload to IT based systems. A huge amount of video data is transmitted continuously from cameras to the NVRs. In contrast, the amount of data coming from the NVR to the users is very low and sporadic. The NVR workload is constant and hence the rate of writing data to disk is constantly high, not periodic as with typical IT applications. The processing overhead for writing the video streams to disk is therefore an important factor in the overall NVR performance. Dot Hill’s networked storage arrays employ SimulCache: a unique patented data caching architecture providing exceptionally high bandwidth video write performance that can allow a NVR to handle many more camera streams in a highly available RAID confi guration. Combined Scalability, Data Security & Reliability Employing SimulCache RAID performance with the best-of-breed NVR server software on the market today will allow for hundreds of camera streams to be recorded using more modest NVR server hardware.
