Use of video surveillance in organizations across each vertical is growing, mounting up new challenges related to handling surveillance systems and storing the exponentially increasing volume of raw video footage. Many of the large enterprises use more than 100 cameras on an average, which are functioning 24×7 around the clock – with no end in sight. The number of surveillance cameras and the worth of video analytics are only projected to grow and so is the need for video surveillance storage. Commercial expansion triggers maximum investment in video surveillance; higher capacity storage media is a vital prerequisite for these system upgrades. With the advancement in storage technologies over the last decade and introduction of IP-cameras, the process of video surveillance became simpler and the demand for video surveillance storage amplified.
