  • Leverage open-standards technology to support massively scalable video surveillance deployments with more than 10,000 end points.
  • Accelerate access to critical surveillance data with sensor data retrieval rates of over 1GB/s per system and latency as low as 1ms.
  • Consolidate surveillance video ingest and retention onto the world’s leading scalable video storage platform while maintaining flexible on-disk retention periods of six weeks to six years in a singularly managed, enterprise system.
  • Achieve 300% greater performance efficiency and NVR scalability compared to iSCSI-based methods of CCTV video storage.
  • Enjoy the only bullet-proof solution to ensure no frame is ever lost, regardless of any hardware and/or software failures.

“Megapixel camera resolutions and increasing surveillance data retention periods are rapidly amplifying the scalability limitations of traditional storage technologies,” said Eli Gorovici, President and CEO, DVTel. “As the DVTel iSOC suite of products continues to receive wide customer adoption and industry recognition, we are increasingly engaged in projects where DDN solutions are uniquely positioned to address the scalability challenges of DVTel’s major customers.”
