Storage Architecture XProtect Corporate
This paper describes the storage architecture in Milestone XProtect Corporate IP video management software, and the new additions introduced in release 4.0 of XProtect Corporate. Milestone XProtect Corporate supports a unique storage architecture for video surveillance systems, which offers the system administrator or integrator the flexibility to design the storage system to meet the customers' demands for performance, reliability and price. Previous releases of XProtect Corporate supported a two stage storage solution, where audio and video could be recorded to one storage system and optionally archived to another storage system after a predefined time and schedule. XProtect Corporate 4.0 extends the existing storage architecture with support for multistage archiving, database encryption and video grooming.
