The VSS product line is ideal for large to enterprise sized businesses that require the functionality of Network Attached Storage (NAS) and/or iSCSI to store video. The VSS products are a perfect fit for video surveillance installations that require a year or longer of video retention. The VSS products are highly customizable and can be engineered to satisfy any combination of camera count or retention schedule.
Video surveillance archivers utilizing ZFS based backend storage benefit from all the advanced enterprise level storage features provided by Cutting Edge Networked Storage Video Surveillance Storage (VSS) systems. ZFS based VSS systems allow multiple Video surveillance archivers to share a centralized storage resource that can be dynamically configured to provide write intensive storage as well as maintain flexibility to reallocate storage resources as storage requirements change. If the required storage needs of one or more Video surveillance archivers increase, unused storage from other shares can be deallocated and reallocated to the shares that require more storage in seconds without any downtime or performance degradation on either the share being reduced or increased. The flexibility of online data volume resizing coupled with enterprise storage features provides Video surveillance users with a competitive storage solution.
ZFS is a 128-bit file system that provides virtually limitless storage capacity while providing extreme data integrity via self-healing check-sums, atomic writes and transactional copy-on-write I/O operations which eliminate silent data corruption. The Cutting Edge VSS products have built in support for Server Message Block (SMB) version 3.02 which provides full support of Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Active Directory Services (ADS) authentication. Using ZFS technology; the VSS products provide disk redundancy via mirrors or disk groups with up to triple parity ensuring data protection and system up-time. Performance can be further increased by utilizing a SSD cache tier which can also cache frequently used data.
