Why NetApp for video surveillance storage?

Fast, reliable, cost-effective surveillance storage

Driven by our rock-solid NetApp® E-Series storage system, NetApp® Video Surveillance Storage (VSS) solutions help you easily solve the challenges of increased surveillance-data throughput, retention, and retrieval. 

No matter what industry you’re in, losing access to your content is unacceptable, which is why VSS solutions are built on a fault-tolerant design to deliver greater than 99.999% availability.

And VSS is ready to grow with your needs. Not only did we design the solutions to scale transparently, all components are hot-swappable, so you can upgrade them as necessary without disruption.
