Strand | Network Architecture Solutions: Enterprise Model

system diagram overview

Strand's software management system provides seamless integration to meet the changing needs of unique network architecture requirements.

Enterprise Model

Deployment of Strand Enterprise Software is recommended for multiple-site, campus architecture environments where video traffic is routed to one or more centralized servers.

Enterprise applications support network redundancy. Because surveillance video is truly 'sequential' in nature, Strand does not utilize the traditional storage array methodology used by our competition. Rather, Strand writes full frame Mjpeg images to alternating hard drives or alternating servers in an enterprise environment creating optimal redundancy. Strand then seamlessly interlaces the archived images during playback. Instead of the basic RAID redundancy, Strand provides server, network and physical redundancy. If images are sent to two Strand servers, one server can be destroyed and you still have immediate access to your camera images. In addition, Strand's redundant archiving methodology allows the load to be distributed across all available hard drives and servers in the system, reducing stress on the individual components.

  • Server configuration can be customized based upon network design.
  • Redundancy options can be configured to record every other frame to alternating drives within a system for redundancy in the event of a drive failure or alternating servers for redundancy in the event of a complete server failure.
  • Unlike RAID, users get nearly the full capacity of their hard drives for video storage without the overhead of distributed parity or dedicated parity drives
