Hikvision tops list of enterprise storage providers
February 2018, News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring
Hikvision has been ranked as the world’s largest provider of branded SAN, NAS and external DAS storage used in video surveillance in 2016, with the largest estimated market share of 22,1%, according to the latest reports from IHS Markit (IHS Markit, Technology Group, Video Surveillance Intelligence Service, May 2017 and Enterprise IP Storage Used in Video Surveillance Report, October 2017).
“This is the first time Hikvision has been ranked as the number one provider in the enterprise storage business. That speaks to the success we’ve had in the video surveillance market, especially in large-scaled projects with city-wide storage demands,” said Keen Yao, VP at Hikvision International Business Centre. “As our customers continue to see the great value of employing surveillance data to boost end-users’ businesses, enterprise-level data storage is becoming an increasingly important part of a solutions approach to data-centred needs.”
Yao explained Hikvision’s growth in storage capacity by increased customer demand for valued data. For instance, retail customers use video to observe customer patterns and preferences as well as employee performance to make better business decisions and improve management. City authorities use video to analyse traffic, reduce congestion and increase commerce.
In addition, data retention times are also increasing. For example, due to regulatory requirements, many companies and authorities are keeping surveillance data much longer, and that is putting even more demand on storage infrastructures.
Hikvision has established an extensive, well-developed line of enterprise storage products, combining high data density, modularised design, video management, data safety, and device management features.
