How NetApp video storage will help your organization

At least 29 states are considering or have passed legislation mandating body-worn cameras for police officers. Police agencies are struggling to keep up with all of the video surveillance accumulated from their officers through these cameras. What's needed is an easy way to store and digest video and categorize, archive and manage it.

NetApp® Video Surveillance Storage solutions provide an easy way to maintain this data for extended periods of time with limited budgets. Police staff remain in control of the video evidence in-house and also have the ability to store copies securely in the cloud.

  • Support any number of cameras at any resolution.
  • Gain unprecedented capacity, speed and durability.
  • Simplify data retrieval, retention and capture.
  • Maintain productivity with high-availability storage.
