CCTV Storage

CCTV is an ever increasing market for storage, this is due to 2 main reasons, more and more installations are being implemented, the other is that the existing CCTV solutions are upgrading to High Definition.

CCTV is an ever increasing market for storage, this is due to 2 main reasons, more and more installations are being implemented, the other is that the existing CCTV solutions are upgrading to High Definition.

This combination results in an ever increasing market for CCTV storage solutions. Other factors include how busy an area is likely to be, because most of the cameras have motion detectors so the more movement the more recording and the more storage space required.

Broadberry can build and supply CCTV storage systems known as an NVR (Network Video Recorder) or DVR (Digital Video Recorder).

DVR - Digital Video Recorders

DVRs digitally compresses analogue video streams to a hard drive, on Digital Video Recorders, Digital means the technology used to compress the data is digitised and not the images being digital. In general DVRs tends to be used for small installations generally for analogue systems in small retail outlets/ small businesses etc which require a few cameras and the storage capacity requirements is low say up to 2 TB.

Digital Video Recorders generally don’t have more than 2 hard drives and are mirrored through software raid and video inputs directly connect to the DVR itself

NVR - Network Video Recorder

NVRs store data streams that have already been encoded or digitised at the camera and stores the digital images via an IP network. This means that an NVR can be located on anywhere on an IP Network. The cameras connect to the NVR via standard ethernet or in some of the larger installations 10Gbe.

NVRs also tend to be used in the larger installations is generally known to have more networking features and has a larger storage capacity and has more redundancy built in such as raid and redundant power supplies etc, Network Video Recorders tend to be use in larger CCTV sites.

Casino / Gambling CCTV Storage

Casino and Gambling Houses require high capacity NVRs / CCTV storage systems, this is due to the fact that Casinos are required to record at higher speed (25-60 ) frames per second instead of the standard 3-5 frames per second that standard CCTV applications such as shops and street CCTV require.

The CyberStore 436DSS and 445 JBOD solution give Casinos a storage solution that offers very dense low cost resilient storage. The CyberStore 436 has a raw capacity of up to 72TB native and 64.8 TB usable (raid 6) in a 4U rack space, available with standard ethernet ( this can be bonded), 10Gbe ethernet or fibre channel connectivity.

To increase the storage capacity the CyberStore JBOD 445 with a capacity of 90 TB native in a 4U Rack Chassis be attached very easily via the SAS external port on the raid controller.

The CyberStore 436 DSS offers lot of functionality including

Combined with the redundant PSUs ,the raid options and the scability of the the CyberStore range this is a ideal for the Casino / Gambling CCTV market.

Ready to Use

All CyberStore VS models are supplied with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or you can choose to go with Windows Server 2012 as a no cost option, but whichever you choose the unit is pre-installed and configured ready for use, we also setup and configure the RAID controller and drives for a real out of the box experience. All you need to do is install your chosen Windows based VMS, access control and/or video analytics software and you are up and running.


We understand the importance of proven reliability and maximum system uptime, so we have included many fault tolerant and system management features as standard into the CyberStore VS range of servers and storage appliances including:- Mirrored Solid State System and Application Drives, Dual Redundant Power Supplies, Hot-Swap Hard Drives with a choice of RAID levels, Hot-Swap System Fans, IPMI Remote System Management and complete RAID System Monitoring with failed component E-mailnotification.


An important factor when designing the CyberStore VS range of servers and storage appliances was expansion, with integrated features such as on-line volume capacity expansion, RAID level migration and the ability to add optional Attached Video Storage Expanders, allowing You to increase your storage capacity as and when you require.


We have a complete range of processor, memory and storage capacity options available, with standalone models ranging from 4TB to 136TB all with the ability to add optional Attached Video Storage Expanders allowing you to grow your video storage systems to hundreds of terabytes and beyond.


System performance was a key factor when designing the CyberStore VS range of server and storage appliances, we achieve this is by using only the best of breed system components including:- Server Optimized multi-core Intel Xeon CPUs, Solid State System and Application Drives, fast 6Gb/s RAID controllers and SAS 6Gb/s enterprise class video storage drives.
