Smarter Storage: How Cloud Video Surveillance Provides On-Demand Scalability

February 14th, 2023

In today’s fast-moving, security-sensitive climate, businesses require a scalable system to support the needs of their growing business. Whether data back-up is required by law, or solely for risk-mitigation, cloud video surveillance solves many data retention challenges typically found with on-premise systems. In this blog post, we’re going to share how cloud security can provide businesses with a higher capacity, flexibility, and cost-effective storage solution.

Cloud VS Solves Compliance Concerns

Insufficient back-up of your data can result in a compliance violation. For example, business owners in the cannabis industry must provide 24/7 surveillance with at least 40 days’ worth of storage. If the recorder is damaged from a break-in, or the hard drive fails, the price of data loss is significant. In an extreme case, it can result in fees, jail time, and possibly cause a business to shut down.

Alibi Cloud VS provides a smarter way to store your data evidence. Because it's stored off-site featuring triple redundancy, you always have a secure back-up in place. As a fully scalable security system, simply increase or decrease your storage to meet compliance demands, and only pay for what you need.

Cloud VS Offers Multi-Site Storage Flexibility

Traditional security systems may seem like an affordable option at first glance, but over time causes limitations. Because on-premise systems come with fixed storage capacity, adding more storage requires additional servers for each new location. In some cases, you may need to upgrade to a whole new system altogether. This can lead to a costly and resource-heavy endeavor.

Cloud VS removes the burden of multi-site storage with a cost-effective hands-off approach. Unlike traditional security systems that require equipment for each site, Cloud VS eliminates the need for expensive equipment from the get-go. Once you deploy the camera-to-cloud solution, your data is uploaded directly from your camera to our off-site data center. Increase up to 25 cameras at a time from a centralized interface, and scale up with unlimited users and storage.

Cloud VS Protects Data Storage Assets

Business owners face a multitude of data threats. This can include everything from inventory loss due to disgruntled or careless employees to shoplifters to network failure. In today’s world, a security system must have sufficient back-up to preserve and store data. With a traditional system, this often requires an IT team to set up and maintain a RAID storage array to back-up your mission-critical video evidence.

Alibi Cloud VS provides a convenient way to stay secure with on-demand, storage scalability. With Cloud VS, you have the flexibility of unlimited storage and the ability to scale up or down at any time. Whether data back-up is required by law, or solely for risk-mitigation, Alibi Cloud VS eliminates data retention limitations typically found on on-premise systems, with one cost-effective solution.
