Servers, PCs and Intel Atom Mini-PCs
Other distributors will try to persuade you that it is best to opt for a pre-built server whether that be pre-built for 8, 16 or 32 cameras. However, what happens when you have a mix of 1 megapixel, 3 megapixel and 5 megapixel on the same server? Does the pre-built server stand up to increased processing loads? Is there room for additional on-board storage?
In GVD, we believe in building bespoke machines on tried and tested platforms. We specify our IP video surveillance and security servers to perform to the exact operational requirements of the project in hand. This means we can use the correct processors depending on how many video streams you are recording and viewing. We can calculate the correct amount of storage for now and in the future for expansion. Using Intel processors and chassis, the correct mix of SAS drives for live recording and SATA drives for storage, we build machines to manage the IP Video project now and into the future.
Before we hand over the server to our customers, we bench and stress test the machines for three days. This ‘real world’ quality checking is vital in our opinion. Our experienced technical support team can replicate typical issues and scenarios in advance of the server being deployed on site. This ensures that there are minimal on-site issues and if there are; then our technical support team are able to solve these either remotely or on-site.
