In the past, if you wanted to install a surveillance system, your options were rather limited. A few years ago, cloud video surveillance wasn’t the best option compared to some of the more established systems in the market, such as DVR and NVR systems. These systems required servers, hard drives, and a laundry list of additional hardware to operate properly, but with limited options, most organizations chose to use a DVR/NVR setup. With recent advancements in cloud technology, businesses and enterprises are now seriously considering moving past the bulky hardware and opting for cloud video surveillance and for good reasons. In this post, we will discuss the benefits an organization can expect when using cloud storage for security cameras and why you should not upgrade to a DVR/NVR system.
At Rhombus, we have a mantra about always finding ways to improve. From hardware and software to process and culture, we are never content with where we are and always keep an eye on where we want to be. We believe that if you’re not improving, you’re declining. When we recently sought to make improvements with data storage, we inevitably went deeper and took it as an opportunity to improve everything we do with customer data. We’ll explore some of those changes as they relate to how your data is protected from malicious actors (data security), how your data is treated internally to ensure you maintain control of it (data privacy), and how we ensure we never lose your data (data durability).
Due to recent events, the use of video security is becoming increasingly important. When examining hotels and those in hospitality, this could not be truer. Hotels exist to please and entertain guests and visitors, yet without specific measures in place, how can hotels guarantee customers will enjoy their stay? The answer is simple – with modern security cameras. With a video surveillance system, organizations can be proactive and security-focused, so that guests can receive an experience they will remember for years to come.
