Many industries are forced to store their video data for a long time (most notably, Law Enforcement). And to make matters WORSE, some are also forced to record constantly! Even just a few cameras recording 24 hours a day for 60 days can easily eat up dozens of Terabytes of disk storage.
Here is a product I just learned about that can minimize the expense of power-hungry disk drives. It is a compatible adjunct to Milestone’s Video Management software and is tailored to run automatically (better than a typical data backup application).
The product is from Rimage Corporation — more info is available at http://www.rimage.com/products.html
