Enterprise-class video storage for your business
Commercial surveillance requires the highest levels of trust and reliability, in a form factor that can endure intensive usage and extreme conditions. And new AI-enabled applications such as smart transportation and smart cities call for increasing capacity and performance.
Get the peace of mind that comes from surveillance-class storage that’s purpose-built for rigorous commercial use, with the performance required for smart video analytics. WD Purple drives are robust enough to handle 24/7 workloads — plus, they’re built with exclusive AllFrame technology to help reduce frame loss and improve video playback. And WD Purple microSD cards come with embedded card health monitoring (in compatible cameras) for predictive maintenance.
In a typical commercial surveillance system, such as the one illustrated here, video footage captured by security cameras in the field is transmitted and recorded by a gateway appliance — which could be either a network video recorder (NVR) or server. This video data can just be stored in the gateway appliance, or optionally (and additionally) be stored in the cloud. Video Management System (VMS) and video analytics software could reside on the gateway appliance and/or the cloud.1
Western Digital’s surveillance-grade smart video storage solutions are built to withstand temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations in harsh environments, and they’re tested for compatibility with a wide range of security systems. See below for recommendations for onboard camera storage and high-capacity gateway appliance storage.
