EonStor GSc

The Perfect Companion for Archiving High-Resolution Surveillance Videos to the Cloud

With the growing number of high-resolution surveillance cameras, the requirement for storage performance and capacity have grown substantially. EonStor GSc Hybrid Cloud Storage Appliance has been successfully deployed for a large NVR integration project to archive videos generated by 2,000 4K cameras to the cloud on a daily basis.

EonStor GSc Family

The requirements are fully satisfied with just 4 units of GSc with dual-controller redundant design. Each controller delivers a throughput of up to 300 MB/s and connects to 250 cameras. If one controller fails, the other controller takes over to ensure non-stop video recording. Each camera produces 40 GB of high-quality video daily, with a total of 80 TB of video recordings for daily archiving to the cloud. In addition, a cache policy must be set up to preserve 50 TB of local space and retain 5 days of videos for fast retrieval.

In this project, GSc’s advantages are clear. As a high-performance local storage, GSc delivers no-single-point-of-failure design and high throughput that supports 24/7 massive recordings by large number of cameras. It also supports common access protocols and easily integrates with any NVR.

As a cloud storage gateway, GSc archives massive surveillance videos during off-peak hours to save valuable bandwidth and offers advanced cache policy settings of the cloud storage behavior. For example, you can set a policy to block temporary files generated by NVR to upload to the cloud, or you can set a policy to cache frequently-accessed videos in the local for faster access. GSc currently supports connectivity to major cloud service providers such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack Swift, and Alibaba Cloud.
