BCDVideo’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI-VS), powered by Scale Computing HC3, is a scalable, node/cluster-based infrastructure that enables a virtualized resource pool to leverage underutilized hardware resources for more efficient operations, higher performance, and a lower total cost of ownership. The HCI-VS makes it easier than ever before to both deploy and manage video surveillance infrastructure.
When designing a security system, network bandwidth requirements and storage space for archiving video are two very important parameters. By using the BCDVideo Bandwidth and Storage Calculator, both parameters can be calculated automatically.

Latency issues in write intensive applications As virtualized storage solutions become more prevalent, ensuring efficient data management is critical. Virtualization often brings with it complexity and overhead that result in latency, which can negatively affect performance. When solutions are virtualized, data that is written/read from the disk interacts with both the physical and virtual hardware, […]
BCDVideo’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS), powered by Scale Computing, utilizes the Scale Computing Reliable Independent Block Engine (SCRIBE) embedded in each node to manage all storage as one logical pool. The real benefits of SCRIBE come from the intelligent distribution of blocks redundantly across the cluster to maximize availability and performance for each […]
High-megapixel cameras can have a profound impact on the storage capacity of a network video system. As a security professional, one of the trickiest areas to address is how much storage will a particular customer site require? Calculating video storage can be a challenge, especially with the widespread use of higher megapixel cameras, which can […]
