System Description

network attached storage

Network Attached Video Storage (NAVS) Server or NAS provides the most flexible way to store video data from your cameras. It's easy! You can add many Terra Bytes of storage without disturbing your network or file servers.

The combination of NAVS and IP software creates a powerful and flexible Digital Video Storage system. Pricing is determined by the type of cameras and number of cameras attached to the network.

The network attached storage server is a totally integrated network appliance with the hard disks and modular thin server built into a small tower or rack enclosure. These fast, powerful network attached storage system allow for quick and safe installation, without impacting the network server. This high-performance appliance runs independently, therefore it will function even if the network server is "down" and provides excellent service to all the users. Choose from many different capacities, and models with built-in RAID controllers. 

Complete Network Support:  The NAVS Server comes network ready and connects to your Ethernet network switch. It's truly plug-and-play. The Server networks and manages hard disks on Windows networks.

RAID Data Protection: The NAVS Server supports RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring) and RAID 5. These NAVS systems support hot-swap drives, hot-swap fans and power supplies making this one of the most reliable storage systems available.

DVD-Recorder Support: All the NAVS systems Support built-in DVD-Recorders making it easy to archive the video to DVD discs. 

Easy, Seamless Sharing: The NAVS Server operates with unmatched simplicity right out of the carton. The server appears in the network neighborhood and can be mapped to a single drive letter. This is an independent network appliance, its operation neither affects nor is impacted by the network file server. The NAVS Server appears as a Windows 2000 server on your network, and can be accessed as such. It is ADS compatible. Hundreds of users can simultaneously access the hard drives with unmatched ease and simplicity.

Easy to Install and Manage:  Installation is very easy. Just plug in the Ethernet cable, plug in the power cable and turn on the unit. Load the IP software and select the NAVS system as the storage point. A Quick installation wizard, and a Web Browser are used to configure the NAVS Server. It allows you to set up security by individual and group. Your server is never out of date - you can download the latest firmware as it becomes available. 

Built to Your Requirements:  We will configure a system to your requirements. Select - capacity, tower or rack cabinet, the number of drives, RAID or just plain drives, hot-swap drives, hot-swap power. 

Sample NAVS System Configurations

The storage required depends on the number of cameras, resolution of the cameras, the frame rate, the amount of motion detected (if motion detection is enabled) and the duration of time the video is stored. For example if you store the video for 7 days and the cameras are set at 1 fps and resolution of 700 x 480, and we assume that motion is detected 50% of the time (this assumes that most of the motion is during the day and very little motion is detected at night), you will require about 70 GB of storage to hold the video from 8 cameras. If motion is detected all the time then you would require twice as much storage. Contact us for your specific requirements. We will calculate the storage required based on your needs and provide the right storage system.

IP Software

NetDVR or NetDVMS software from OnSSI can use secondary storage for long term video storage. These IP software products are sometimes referred to as Network Video Recorder (NVR) software. They are a Windows based application that manages networked IP cameras. In general the software allows you to view multiple cameras, record and retrieve video and monitor alarms.
