Micron announced a full portfolio of edge storage solutions for video surveillance that will enable new deployment models and reduce total cost of ownership for both commercial and enterprise use cases. The new industrial-grade microSD products will be available in 2018 and will leverage Micron’s 3D NAND technology, providing up to 256GB of ultra-high-density storage.
Seagate Technology plc announced its SkyHawk™ AI hard disk drive (HDD), the first drive created specifically for artificial intelligence (AI) enabled video surveillance solutions. Building on Seagate’s 10-year track record of delivering surveillance optimized storage performance, SkyHawk AI provides unprecedented bandwidth and processing power to manage always-on, data-intensive workloads, while simultaneously analyzing and recording footage from multiple HD cameras. Analytics on video surveillance hardware is growing exponentially, forecasted to increase from 27.6 million shipments in 2016 to 126 million shipments in 2021 (Cropley, 2017), as hardware manufacturers continue to include analytics sensors on network video recorders (NVRs).
Spectra Logic, a long-time video storage specialist, in an industry first is offering LTO-8 Type M media that provides a 50-percent increase in capacity from 6TB to 9TB native per cartridge using new LTO-7 media in an LTO-8 drive. This new technology reduces early adoption costs associated with new media and drives and establishes LTO as the lowest cost per GB data storage technology
Surveon Technology announced the new 2U 8-bay form factor NVR5408 that will be added to the NVR5400 Series. Featuring 8-bay hot-swappable hard drives and Intelligent Drive Recovery (IDR) for ultimate data protection. The NVR5408 supports 5MP video recording of up to 64 channels and SAS storage with up to 308 HDDs for 365+ days video retention, making it ideal for middle to large scale projects such as cities, factories, schools, or larger commercial buildings.
Milestone Systems has completed the Milestone Solution Certification of IBM’s Storwize and Tiger Bridge, a cost-effective online data storage system. Important considerations for storing huge volumes of video archives include simplicity, scalability, and affordability. IBM Storage, including IBM Storwize systems, provide a cost-effective platform for online storage.
CNL Software, the world’s leading pure play Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) provider is pleased to announce it has entered a technology collaboration with the leading developer of open storage platforms for video surveillance, Promise Technology.
March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, is pleased to introduce a new hybrid video recording platform able to support high-definition (HD) analog video in addition to all-IP and standard analog video channels. The new March Networks 8724 V Hybrid Network Video Recorder (NVR) provides organizations with the custom combination of video capture they need right out of the box. It enables them to get sharp HD video using existing analog infrastructure, while avoiding the cost and disruption typically required to replace coaxial cable with Ethernet.
Surveon Technology, the enterprise NVR solutions provider, announced it NVRs will start to support H.265 cameras. H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as HEVC) is a video compression standard whose predecessor is H.264, supporting up to 300fps and 8K, and ensuring to deliver video quality identical to H.264 at only the half of bit rate. Supporting H.265 cameras, Surveon NVR allows partners to save on their budget while extending the retention days of video without expanding the capacity of storage.
XenData, the global provider of high capacity data storage solutions, launches its CX-10 Appliance, which can manage a single hybrid file system across two storage tiers: 10 TB of on-premises RAID and unlimited Microsoft Azure blob storage. The appliance allows existing file-based applications to use cloud storage without the need for modification. The CX-10 has highly configurable RAID retention policies that determine which files are written to the cloud, local RAID, or both allowing users to set policy rules for different file types and folders.
With Homeland Security and Public Safety organizations exploring new ways to use big data and data analytics, data storage is no longer just a place to save information; it’s an enabler—a platform that can help government and law enforcement officials achieve better airport and border security. – Quantun’s Wayne Arvidson discusses video surveillance long-term retention storage strategies.
