Understanding the ever-changing and expanding landscape of protecting high-security facilities with new technology and identifying the keys to building the right infrastructure to support it is critical for leaders in the government space. In this session, attendees will gain insight into how the task of protecting mission-critical environments is changing with the introduction of new technologies. Visual solutions, such as video surveillance cameras and door controls, are often prioritized over “back-end” technology such as storage, but this shouldn’t be the case. The backbone of any video surveillance infrastructure is storage, and intelligent infrastructure enables the modernization of data center and data storage needs. Illustrated with anecdotes of video storage challenges, the session will explore how modernizing video/IT storage architectures will save money, enable the implementation of intelligent analytics and reduce video losses, complexity and cost.
