I am looking for video surveillance management & video storage/archiving advice. I am replacing 19 very old video surveillance DVRs (4 analog cameras each) with encoders so that I can centralize the recording and archiving of the video for insurance needs. We are looking to keep the videos for up to a year.
I have reviewed video management systems like Milestone and Onssi as well as the server/NVR storage options. But am unsure if I they are my only options.
The storage requirements appear to be over 120 Terabytes.
Are heavy duty storage devices my only option?
