iSCSI is a remote network storege solution used by many exacqVision customers. iSCSI, which is a Storage Area Network (SAN) protocol, allows users to consolidate storage using existing data center storage systems. iSCSI requires no dedicated cabling; it utilizes existing network cabling and infrastructure, and as such is highly cost effective.
All exacqVision servers - Hybrid, IP and third-party - can write to iSCSI storage units. Due to the increasing popularity of this storage solution with our customer base, we recently made an addition to our exacqVision server lineup that is specifically designed for use with external iSCSI storage.
The exacqVision iSCSI IP Camera Server comes in our standard 2U rackmount chassis, and is built with redundancy and iSCSI external storage in mind. Features include:
- Dual, removable 160GB enterprise-class hard drives in RAID-1 configuration for the OS and VMS application
- Removable power supply
- Dual redundant gigabit network cards
- Windows or Linux OS
- Up to 64 IP cameras per server
- Cost-effective system uses local storage for OS and VMS app only, and iSCSI for video storage
