IDIS Critical Failover aims to boost fault tolerance with multi-layered protection
CCTV product launch IDIS has launched IDIS Critical Failover, comprising five capabilities that fortify the fault tolerance of CCTV infrastructure. The new solution combines existing, improved and brand-new failover features for multi-layered protection that IDIS says can prevent downtime in a range of scenarios. Full redundancy of every component in your infrastructure is prohibitively expensive and adds unnecessary complication.
James Min, managing director, IDIS Europe If any part of video surveillance infrastructure fails, it s critical to first recognise the failure and then initiate appropriate alternative or redundant technologies to minimise loss of data, said James Min, managing director at IDIS Europe. Full redundancy of every component in your infrastructure is prohibitively expensive and adds unnecessary complication in most cases, and manual recognition and resolution costs precious time and risks gaps in footage. IDIS Critical Failover reduces both issues, through a multi-layered collection of capabilities spread across the devices in your infrastructure. embedded content IDIS Critical Failover consists of five parts: Temporary smart failover deals with network instability by recording to an internal recording session buffer (of at least 60MB) to prevent a break in the data sent to the NVR. Smart failover takes over for longer network issues, such as total failure of the link between camera and NVR, upon which the camera instantly begins recording to an internal SD card at original quality until half of the storage is used, adjusted to achieve a full 24 hours of footage captured on a 32GB card. H.265 cameras add support for SDXC cards, with a theoretical limit of 2TB. After network restoration all data is automatically transferred to the NVR. Taking the form of native RAID 1 or RAID 5 support within the NVR (DR-8364D) storage redundancy stores two identical copies of the data, so if one disk fails, data is retrieved from the second one. RAID 5 stores data and additional parity data in separate locations, providing same redundancy, more efficiently than RAID 1.
NVR Failover provides backup in the event that the NVR itself fails altogether. The primary and standby NVR continuously monitor one another and rapidly switch to the back-up during a failure, reducing risk of data loss and worsening failover response times. Native dual power supplies (DR-8364D) provide a redundant power supply in case primary supply fails, reducing risk of data loss and downtime.
