Advocates Economic Benefits of 'Green' NVRsBy: John Honovich, Published on Jan 31, 2010
We question the economic significance of IndigoVision's marketing campaign around 'green' NVRs.
Here's the core of their case:
- "In a RAID 5 system, typical power consumption for a video storage server and attached RAID disk unit would be 900W, whereas the latest green standalone NVR units typically consume around 50W.'
- "The storage requirements for a 500 camera system archiving continuous video at 4SIF 25/30fps for 30 days would typically be 300TB. With energy costs at US$0.10 KW/hr, this relates to an annual running cost of: Typical storage server solution: US$10,512 -- Standalone green NVR: US$2,365 And this doesn’t take into account the extra power consumption of the air-conditioning system!"
