The role of storage in video surveillance systems has evolved, from a means of preserving evidence to an evidence search tool, and soon as the main data repository for predictive analytics. Old analogue systems are now being replaced with massive multi-camera IT systems.

Necessary storage volumes keep growing as video resolutions increase. 1K, 4K, and 8K megapixel cameras require such gigantic storage space that network video recorders (NVRs) can hardly handle more than a handful of them simultaneously.

This Quantum white paper explains how you can efficiently circumvent this situation, showing a progressive migration path from current state-of-the-art IP video solutions, up to tomorrow’s storage-centric architectures.
