Infortrend Storage Supports 24/7 Non-stop Operation of 2,500+ CCTV Cameras for Seoul Gwanak-Gu District
The Office of Gwanak-Gu, the second most populated district of Seoul, has a CCTV Surveillance Center to take charge of the area’s surveillance work. Since its establishment in 2010, the center has expanded from an operation of 400 units of SD cameras to 2,250 units of FHD cameras plus 300 units of SD cameras at present. With the fast growth in scale, the center encountered these issues :
- Limited rack space: the equipment first took only 7 racks in the space of 14 racks in 2010 and now the devices fill up 16 racks, already exceeding the limitation of 14 racks.
- Increasing IT administration complexity: to overcome the challenges of surveillance VMS server virtualization, IT administration is becoming very complicated and often requires many people to come together to solve system issues.
- 24/7 non-stop surveillance operation: city surveillance has to run around the clock without interruption and this requires storage solutions with high reliability and availability.
Compact and High Performance Infortrend Storage is the Perfect Fit
The Gwanak-Gu Office was running out of rack space and this prompted the IT administrators to look for high density storage solutions with high throughput. Infortrend stood out from other competitors in the Gwanak-Gu Office’s selection process and was chosen for its compact form factor, tremendous capacity expansion, and high performance features, which were just the right fit for Gwanak-Gu’s needs.
