With educational institutions, retail outlets, pubs, public transport etc installing surveillance cameras, there has been a huge surge in the amount of data generated.
The tendency now is not to delete any data, since no one knows what data will be required when. According to 6Wresearch, Video Surveillance Camera market in India, which is dominated by analog surveillance cameras, is witnessing a shift towards IP surveillance cameras, on account of declining prices and demand for remote access. These have resulted in loads of data getting stored, requiring innovative technologies to handle them.
NetApp, one of the leaders in cloud storage, has been pioneering the unified concept. "The data fabric strategy unifies all different types of formats in which data is stored. That makes it easy to move them from one cloud to another, easily and efficiently," said Anil Valluri, President, India and SAARC, NetApp Marketing Services. Inline compression is another method that is adopted to compress the data so that more can be stored in lesser space. The Inline Deduplication technology even ensures that copies of the same data are stored only once, saving space to a huge extent, said Mr. Valluri.
