Surveillance Overview

The demand for storage capacity to record Video Surveillance image is growing at an unprecedented rate driven by increasing high resolution cameras and longer data retention polices.

In recent years, video surveillance has shifted from analogue to digital data archiving; which recording streams via digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR) to external storages with RAID features data protection.

Furthermore, critical record would request infrastructure like storage area network (SAN) to achieve performance, scalability and reliability. Arena offers a complete range of DAS/SAN solutions to meet the critical requirement of modern video surveillance application; various features are tailored for it and various configurations can fulfill different demand.

Application

iSCSI Application for NVR

Mission:
With the growth of IP Camera in Video Surveillance, the digital video recorder have moved to Network Video Recorder (NVR), thus traditional CCTV integrators and users start to accommodate the network environment which are not familiar with before. Arena's iSCSI storage is a best fit for IP video surveillance, to help to store the large volumes of video images captured by IP camera.

Solution:
By using the iSCSI RAID with NVR , the IP cameras files would store into the iSCSI storage safely. The benefits of using iSCSI solution are.

Flexible Capacity of Video Data storing and Backup
The RAID System could extend its capacity through adding a new iSCSI RAID into the network switch or directly expand the drives by cascading to a JBOD (up to 118 drives). Finally, the user can set up a complex network environment with hundreds of cameras (In normal situation, one NVR is supported up to 16 to 32 cameras only) to share all video from one big storage pool with multiple NVRs and servers.

Low total cost of ownership
Moreover, the RAID units are connected directly through existing 1Gb network environment, saving another cost of a SCSI or SAS HBA installed into the DVR traditionally.
