Large IP Camera System With No NVR, Just Install SD Cards In All The Cameras And Rely On That For Recording, Feedback?

Just looking for some insight here.

I have a new customer that wants to run all their cameras (2MP and 5MP) without any NVR's. They just want to install SD cards in all the cameras and rely on that for recording. They said that's what they have done at other sites.
