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.
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.
BCDVideo’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS), powered by Scale Computing, utilizes the Scale Computing Reliable Independent Block Engine (SCRIBE) embedded in each node to manage all storage as one logical pool. The real benefits of SCRIBE come from the intelligent distribution of blocks redundantly across the cluster to maximize availability and performance for each virtual machine.
Advances In Infrastructure That Reduce Complexity: As BCDVideo closes out another expo attending ISC West 2019, one theme resonated throughout the show. System Integrators are looking for ways to deliver better solutions, leverage emerging technologies, and advance the capabilities of physical security infrastructures. One of the focal points for BCDVideo this year is hyperconvergence systems, or Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). Read more on why this truly is a game changer for the video surveillance market.
