High-resolution video camera technology combined with high-speed network infrastructure is enabling city officials to deploy metropolitan-wide surveillance solutions capable of covering a larger viewing area with a deeper level of detail than ever before. As more video is captured, city officials are using surveillance data to move past traditional security uses to make their cities smarter.
Using a multi-tier storage architecture enables Quantum’s solution to balance performance, capacity and cost across the entire infrastructure, providing a cost-effective approach to long-term retention of data.
Using a multi-tier storage approach, you can spend less of your budget on video storage so you can spend more on other tools in your workflow
High-performance video storage is designed for video applications and is capable of handling petabytes of data that can grow incrementally over time as needs change.
Even when a file has been tiered to a different type of storage, your data still appears in the original file system location, saving your IT department time and money.
As more cameras are added, video analytics are used to improve operations, and as retention times become longer, a multi-tier storage approach can scale to handle the need for more capacity.
“I’ve been in the industry for more than 18 years, at nearly every job, we’ve relied on Quantum for our backup. Quantum, in my mind, is the proven and rock-solid backup solution.”William Ormond
The QXS system had all the features and performance that we were looking for, saved us money over alternatives. The support from Quantum has been very, very good. We expect the new system to have the same exceptional reliability that we have seen from the platform over the last six years.James Thompson
