Gulf Coast Countries Video Surveillance Storage Market Forecast 2017-2023

According to research, GCC Video Surveillance Storage market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during 2017-2023. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have experienced a setback in video surveillance storage market in the last two years due to decline in oil prices. However, the market is expected to recover from 2017 onwards. Expansion and construction of new hotels, shopping malls and public infrastructures across GCC countries would spur the video surveillance storage market in GCC countries.

Toshiba Launches Cloud-Based Percept NVRs

Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Group, a business unit of Toshiba Information Systems, Inc., has expanded its line of Percept cloud-powered network video recorders designed to enhance the management of IP video networks. Percept has a universal sign-on that lets users access their recorders from anywhere, with almost any device. This does away with the integration hassles common with IP networks, so tech support time is reduced, plus system authorization is better safeguarded by the elimination of improperly stored passwords. Percept NVRs make it easier to export, share, and download video to the cloud, and to monitor the health of the recorder remotely using Toshiba’s MySurveillix service.

Advances Propel Storage Technology To New Markets

LTO storage technology expanded its reach in 2016 effectively addressing many data intensive markets including cloud, entertainment, video surveillance, hyperscale data centers, High Performance Computing (HPC), and the Internet along with large-scale data intensive applications such as big data, backup, recovery, long-term archive, disaster recovery, and government compliance while positioning for the unknown appetite of the IoT. The LTO tape industry has been fueled by a decade of strong technological development and continues to play a major role for its traditional backup and disaster recovery services in addition to effectively addressing many new large-scale storage requirements. Demand for LTO tape is being fueled by unrelenting data growth, significant technological advancements, LTO tape’s highly favorable economics, low energy requirements, and the growing regulatory and business requirements to maintain “access to data forever.” Steady improvements have made LTO tape technology the most reliable storage medium available, now surpassing the reliability of HDDs by three orders of magnitude. Disk technology has been advancing, but LTO tape’s progress over the last ten years has been even greater.

VMS Vendors Invited To Video Storage Technology Roundtable At ISC West

As part of this year’s ISC West expo, BDT Products will host a separate technology roundtable for VMS software manufacturers. This technology roundtable will discuss viable video surveillance storage techniques and how VMS software vendors could enable the utilization of time-tested storage technologies. An industry that mimics the video surveillance market, Hollywood’s Media and Entertainment industry, has been using these types of video storage technologies for over a decade. Unfortunately, the video surveillance industry seems intent on learning things the hard way and has yet to embrace such long-term, viable, low-cost, storage platforms. BDT invites VMS software vendors to join them at ISC West, Las Vegas, NV, April 5, at 3:00pm. Contact Douglas Bass at to reserve a seat at the meeting.

Video Storage Solutions Showcased At ISC West 2017

Typically, a storage challenge for such situations but BDT will share their expertise and technology with visitors to booth 30110 at ISC West 2017 expo in Las Vegas.

HPC And Object Storage Helping Companies Intelligently Manage Video Surveillance Data

The adoption of high-definition cameras, increasing device connectivity, and the shift from analog to IP technologies are causing complex stores of video surveillance data to expand at an exponential pace. As the costs and complexity of video surveillance storage architectures grow at the same rate as the data itself, organizations are seeking new ways to intelligently store and manage these rising data volumes. However, many organizations struggle to adapt to the evolving storage requirements associated with exploding data volumes, advancing camera technologies, and an expanding number of cutting-edge use cases.

Cloudian Expands Cloud Data Archiving Options

Cloudian has come up with new cloud data archiving products to help organizations move on-premises data to the cloud. Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in hybrid cloud object storage systems, announced its HyperStore 4000 appliance, a high-density storage platform that meets the demands of explosive data growth and limited data center space with the performance of an on-premises solution and cloud-like prices.
