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.

Virtualization And Hyperconvergence: A Primer

The physical security world is constantly evolving. The migration from analog to digital triggered significant changes in both the market and required skill set to support these newer technologies. As we usher in the new year, additional changes are on the horizon. While virtualization is not a new concept, hyperconverged infrastructure is becoming more and more prevalent in the security market. This primer will focus on the benefits associated with virtualization and how it applies to hyperconverged infrastructure in the security industry.
