“Storage was a huge problem because we needed to move off tape jukeboxes onto a high performance, hard-disk drive based platform that could manage multiple petabytes of footage. We wanted to collect data at high speeds, secure it in different locations and then retrieve it quickly.”
—Lt. Brandon Jones, Public Information Officer & Project Lead Designer, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
Maricopa County, the third largest Sheriff’s office in the US, comprises of state-of-the-art facilities considered to be among the most secure and technologically advanced in the country. As its legacy video surveillance system neared end of life, Maricopa County decided to evaluate technologies to meet its growing needs for highly reliable, real time data capture, storage and processing. Moreover, data growth presented significant challenges to implement a new system as the Sheriff’s office wanted to capture multiple petabytes of surveillance and sensor data from thousands of new IP cameras. Read their case study to learn how DDN® high-performance storage has helped Maricopa County record HD resolution surveillance footage at 15 frames per second, retain footage for a minimum of 60 days, and achieve 100% surveillance coverage across six facilities.
