DNF Cloud Connection, a video surveillance archival solution offered by default to DNF Falcon Video recording and storage appliance customers can handle deep as well as active archives with ease.
To understand the technique behind DNF Cloud Connection in a better way, first let us understand what is the concept behind deep and active archives.
A deep archive is a storage location for data that will probably not be accessed again, but has to be kept for compliance audit purposes or for some other business reasons. For example, a bank statement of a person who is dead. Although, it is of no use; banks still need to maintain the record for auditing purposes and to present the transaction details when a situation arises.
An active archive is a collection of data that is too valuable for a company to discard, but is only accessed occasionally. For instance, an individual’s bank statement of previous year. The said transaction details can be used to access the credit history of the person.
Now, to those who are wondering how is a deep and active archive related to video surveillance, here’s a thought.
Let us suppose you own a departmental store and one of your employees has stolen an expensive item. This time he was unlucky and was caught with evidence. But as a store keeper, its your duty to see if the same incident took place say six to eight months before, then what would you do?
Normally, users will take the help of a DVR or NVR recording and search for video evidence. But what if the recording appliance doesn’t store the recorded videos of more than one month? Then you cannot prove the employee guilty for his/her past deeds of theft.
This is where DNF Cloud Connection proves extremely helpful. Whether it is a recording of above 2 months or 1 year, you can store it in an economic way DNF Cloud Connection.
So, whenever the need arises, you can just go to the virtual drive of DNF Cloud Connection secured on your DNF Falcon series of video recording and storage solution and search for the video.
Like said above, all falcon series video storage appliances support an optimal cloud connection for video archiving. Live recordings continue to be stored directly on the falcon appliance’s local storage, while archived footage can be written to and read from a secure StoneFly Cloud Drive hosted in Microsoft Azure or the StoneFly Cloud Business Center.
Users can retain video evidence till they desire or as per the company’s video retention policy. The said cloud platforms highly scalable and so users might never face capacity troubles.
