Veracity CS-COMPACT8 overview

  • 1Description

The 8TB COLDSTORE Compact 8-Bay Surveillance Storage System from Veracity is a NAS disk array specifically designed for sequential surveillance recording. It accepts any make and size of 2.5" SATA HDD (up to 4TB) and supports almost any mix of HDDs. This system comes with eight preinstalled 1TB HDDs and 16 Milestone Arcus camera licenses.

The COLDSTORE Compact Storage System employs a combination of Linear Array of Idle Disks (LAID) and Veracity's Sequential Filing System (SFS) technologies. HDDs may be added on-the-fly or extracted at any time without affecting the recording of data. Due to the strictly sequential writing pattern, physical location (and extraction) of any particular recording for evidential purposes is simple. This feature allows the HDDs in the array to be managed by the end users themselves.

HDDs that are not in use are automatically switched off. This saves power and dramatically reduces the temperature, vibration, and wear. The system consumes as little as 16W even with a fully populated array of 4TB hard drives.
