The security industry has adopted a centralized storage approach for IP video surveillance systems.
Manufacturers followed traditional data center designs, assuming that it was best to use the standard

today, such as bandwidth, storage and maintenance costs, are the direct result of this centralized
storage architecture.

Here’s the problem: Data centers and most IT systems are designed for many users accessing data
servers in one location. This is called a “one-to-many” model, since each data center serves large
