Changes to legislation are significantly impacting the market for enterprise data storage in video surveillance globally. For example, in Germany the maximum retention time for video surveillance has been increased from 24 hours to 48 hours, this effectively doubles the maximum capacity requirement of video surveillance data storage systems.
According to leading vendors in the market, end users are placing greater value on their video surveillance data. This is due to video surveillance increasingly being used for business intelligence applications, as well as evidence for defence in law suits. In both cases investment in storing video surveillance data for extended periods of time, or at a higher quality, gives the end user increased ROI.
Network attached storage (NAS) is forecast to increasingly compete with storage area network (SAN) solutions. Technological development of NAS is making it more comparable, in terms of performance, with SAN. NAS is also typically more cost effective to install and maintain compared to SAN.
