The concept of cloud-hosted data has taken off in recent years, driven in part by businesses looking for easy solutions to off-site data hosting that is still easily accessible. Video storage in the cloud has become especially popular due to the large size of video files, which can make them impractical for local storage. In certain industries, businesses are legally obligated to store customer information for long periods of time, including surveillance video. Therefore, businesses with security data storage needs are increasingly taking advantage of the cloud to meet regulatory standards.
This approach, known as a Hosted Video Surveillance Solution (HVSS), is especially useful for small businesses, which may not have the resources required to host all of their data on site. Using HVSS, small businesses can store, for example, HD surveillance video locally with a network storage device, and store standard definition video in the cloud. Both are equally easy to access using browser-based video management solutions, and HVSS is also compatible with IP cameras and video hosting systems.
Overall, HVSS provides a great surveillance footage hosting solution for small businesses looking to meet legal standards cost-effectively. Data is stored locally and remotely, ensuring that if anything goes amiss in one location, backups can be located in another location.
