Archive storage for video surveillance

Video surveillance creates unique storage challenges.

Organizations are increasing the number of cameras, moving to higher-resolution formats, and keeping media assets longer. This creates a large amount of data that needs to be archived yet accessible.

Until now, you had two options: Buy a video storage solution that is cheap… but slow. Or buy one that is fast… but expensive. Finally, there’s a better way.

Nearline Archive

The Qumulo Nearline Archive Series, the most efficient, highest performing active archive system in the market, answers the challenge of unified video surveillance data storage.

Qumulo’s solution has the economics of archive storage, nearline performance, and massive scalability in terms of capacity and the number of files it can manage.

The Nearline Archive series runs Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), the world’s most modern file storage system. QF2 can manage trillions of files and provides a single, scalable pool of external storage for video surveillance applications.

“Archives are places where only historians go. As businesses decide that all data is valuable and usable—for the business, not for historians—a new class of storage is required. Nearline archive storage today must exhibit the economics of the traditional archive but the performance of modern scale-out.

By focusing on proprietary hardware choices, legacy vendors lock themselves into low-volume, high-cost hardware that creates a fast OR deep mentality. Qumulo, by building enterprise performance, reliability, and scale storage on standard hardware, is using cloud technology to deliver a new class of storage, the Qumulo Nearline Archive Series, that is fast, scalable, AND inexpensive.”
