Poll: How Much Storage Do You Use For Surveillance?

Here's a poll. There's no right or wrong answer, and obviously one's response will be dictated by lots of factors - resolution, frame rate, compression levels, storage duration, etc. Just choose based on the average level you have seen in your recent work:

For those looking for more on storage, see our storage/bandwidth calculation guide and average storage duration statistics.

Feel free to share examples and details in the thread.
