Challenges for video surveillance storage

Video surveillance is a complex collection of constantly evolving technologies under pressure from new requirements, demands, and expectations. With more cameras, higher resolutions, and expanding demand for both longer retention periods and immediate access to data, traditional video surveillance storage technologies are meeting their limitations.

As video surveillance systems become more advanced and critical to an enterprise’s operations, the more important it becomes for companies to be mindful of how they manage their data, making sure it’s stored in a way that is simple, reliable, affordable and secure.

What to look for in a surveillance video storage provider

While the cloud is an ideal solution to help organizations affordably scale video storage capacity, not all cloud object storage is created equal. Here are some things to look for in your cloud storage provider:

Predictable Pricing–

Not all cloud provider pricing models are optimized for video surveillance. Look for a provider that doesn’t charge for data downloads (egress fees), data transfer/migration, API requests, or extra costs for long-term retention.

Instant Accessibility—

Some cloud storage data access SLAs are measured in minutes or even hours. Any video surveillance stream should be accessible in seconds, from any location.

Defense-in-Depth Security—

Look for robust, multiple layers of data protection, disaster recovery, and adherence to regulatory compliance.
