There has been a great deal of talk about Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) in recent years. Authoritative sources are starting to highlight the business case for VSaaS or Hosted Video Storage.
As the SecurityInfoWatch article indicates, there are many different flavours of hosted surveillance storage. The argument runs that the advent of multi-megapixel HD cameras and the proliferation of these cameras have created an explosion of video data which all needs to be stored and managed.
The article suggests a hybrid video surveillance storage model using internal (i.e. in-house DVR, NVR, VMS-embedded server, NAS or other storage device) and external storage (i.e. cloud) usage being increasingly considered by larger enterprises. The cloud could be used for holding backups in this hybrid scenario, for example.
