Tyco introduces RAID storage system

July 2016 Security by Industry Sector, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, IT infrastructure

Tyco Security Products has released a new version of the RAID storage system for VideoEdge network video recorders, which include enhancements in the NVR’s archived storage and improved battery back-up capabilities to significantly decrease system downtime.

The new RAID storage line of servers from American Dynamics allows users to extend archived storage to any VideoEdge network video recorder (NVR). With redundant power supplies and lockable, hot swappable drives, the RAID storage system provides its users with high reliability to store critical video and audio longer. An additional battery backup module comes with the storage server for additional redundancy. Each system uses RAID 5 to minimise video loss and maximise hard drive dependability. Designed for high performance video surveillance, the American Dynamics RAID supports iSCSI and fibre interfaces with quad iSCSI ports and dual fibre ports.

Ideal for mid to large-sized installations or cloud data centres, the RAID storage system provides a cost-effective, reliable storage solution optimised for video surveillance. Available in five different configurations including an 18, 36 and 48 terabyte system with a single RAID array and a 90 terabyte system with dual RAID arrays, users can extend their storage without the need for an additional recorder. For future expansion, users can add up to six additional expansion shelves and be scalable up to 112 hard drives with 672 terabytes of total storage. Each system comes with a three-year warranty.

The new RAID storage server uses an intuitive browser-based GUI for simple server management. Users can remotely manage network settings, fibre and iSCSI parameters and RAID volumes minimising time necessary for set up and maintenance.
