I have to come up with a plan to fulfill a request for up to 500Gb of space to satisfy a new video recording initiative. I am unsure of the video mix (as in what content is required to be streamed throughout the company, what content is critical in nature and needs to be backed up and what content is solely an archive, so my question comes in two parts;
1) What information do I need to determine in order to classify acceptable storage solutions for each type of video
2) What recommendations can be given for cost-effective storage solutions (eg cloud services, NAS device, USB hard drives etc)
I suspect the requester would prefer one single solution that fits all but I have to provide realistic options that address cost. Your help in determining needs and storage options is appreciated.
