HCI vs NVR: The Pivot3 Advantage

May 1, 2017

Modern Network Video Recorders (NVRs) are based on Direct Attached Storage (DAS) technology, and were designed to mimic obsolete analog VCRs and DVRs. But most IT organizations have evolved to virtualized servers and shared storage infrastructure (SAN), and stopped using DAS decades ago due to its highly inefficient operation and critical susceptibility to downtime and data loss. Many security implementations, however, have continued to rely on aging and inadequate DAS architecture for increasingly sophisticated video surveillance systems. Pivot3 Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) brings the best of both worlds, merging the resiliency and efficiency of SAN with the simplicity of DAS, and optimizing performance for challenging workloads like video surveillance.
