Part III: Optimizing Video Data Storage in a Virtualized Environment – Scaling Local Resources

One of the factors that limits the overall performance of any IP video surveillance solution is how effectively software can utilize hardware resources. Traditionally, an application such as video management software or access control requires a dedicated server, which typically does not use more than 20 percent of available hardware resources. This leads to an investment in hardware that won’t be utilized throughout the life of a deployment.

Part II: Optimizing Video Data Storage in a Virtualized Environment – Reducing Latency

As virtualized storage solutions become more prevalent, ensuring efficient data management is critical. Virtualization often brings with it complexity and overhead that result in latency, which can negatively affect performance. When solutions are virtualized, data that is written/read from the disk interacts with both the physical and virtual hardware, and each hop that data makes before it reaches its destination increases the overall latency.

Optimizing Video Data Storage in a Virtualized Environment – Intro to SCRIBE
