  • Page 6: Solution Overview

    Introduction Solution overview The purpose of this guide is to help you understand the benefits of using a Dell EMC storage solution with ISS SecurOS. The solution includes both hardware and software elements for video surveillance. The storage platforms include physical hosts that are running SecurOS Enterprise Video Surveillance Manager.
  • Page 7: Key Objectives

    Introduction Key objectives The configurations documented in this guide are based on tests conducted in the Dell EMC Surveillance Lab and actual production implementations. These are the key objectives of this solution: Measure the sizing needs for specific system requirements so that an implementation can be correctly sized and the appropriate Dell EMC products can be matched to a customer's requirements.

    Configured components capacity nodes. Current releases of OneFS offer a new protection option, +3d:1n1d, which means the cluster can survive three simultaneous disk failures or one entire node failure plus one disk. OneFS also provides an option that continually evaluates the cluster and sends an alert if the cluster falls below the suggested protection level.

    The Dell EMC Surveillance Lab tests focus on storage-related factors with the following objectives: Determine the bandwidth for various Dell EMC storage arrays using FC and iSCSI. Determine the bandwidth for various Dell EMC storage clusters using SMB. Determine the best configuration parameters for Isilon and VNX storage options.
  • Page 23 Testing and validation NIC Failure test We performed the hard NIC failure test by removing one NIC cable from the active node that was involved in active recording. After the NIC failure, writing to the same node failed. When the network fails, the server must recognize the failure, then it must establish a new connection.
