Is There Such A Thing As A VMS With ONLY Edge Storage?

I had a customer ask a question today that I didn't have a great answer to. The client has quite a handfull of cameras (~400) and wants to get rid of their current Salient system. They're interested in installing cameras with edge recording capabilities and want a VMS that can manage the cameras and the streams without needing a central recording server and storage. When playback is needed they want to have the VMS pull the video from the cameras directly across their LAN.

They understand that recording this many cameras to the cloud with something like Verkada/Arcules isn't going to work. Remote access is needed, but they're hoping to only use that LAN->WAN traffic when someone would call up a camera stream on a phone remotely.

I know many VMS's support edge recording in various ways, but are there any that will do what the customer is asking with no central storage?
