"Cold" HDD storage array

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with this systems? I know just 2 manufactures - Veracity and Xtralis.

This is tecnology, suitable only with CCTV systems, where around 99% of system working time is writing to HDD, and aroud 1% is reading from storage.

It's supposed to be less expensive and reduce hard drive failures as the drives are cold or powered down when not video is not being written to them.


Be careful about:


- 3rd party integration. Typically this requires custom development and cannot just work out of the box with any VMS

- Time delay to recall video from a drive that is cold. This can be a usability issue for investigators.
