The rising demands for capturing and managing video surveillance data are placing new pressures on state and local governments, law enforcement agencies, and education officials. The challenges go beyond the expanding costs of equipment, storage, software and management time. Officials must also lay the right foundation to scale their capabilities, improve performance and still remain flexible in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of surveillance tools.
Find out what state, local government and education IT leaders need to know, and what steps you can take to:
• Improve performance and ROI on cameras-per-server for the dollars invested
• Optimize and simplify the management of daily surveillance processing, including the integration of facial recognition, redaction and analysis software
• Fortify reliability and dependability to reduce the risk of surveillance data retrieval failures.
Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted as a way for IT organizations to decrease costs, improve efficiency, and enhance business agility. NetApp has been helping companies succeed in cloud deployment to achieve tangible results since long before the term cloud entered the popular lexicon. NetApp has the people, technologies, and partnerships in place to help organizations evolve existing IT infrastructure into an efficient cloud-based service delivery model. The NetApp® Unified Storage Architecture and clustered Data ONTAP® operating system integrate all storage capabilities into a single, easy-to-use platform. By choosing NetApp when making the transition to a private cloud or a hybrid cloud, organizations will be able to meet their storage business needs now and in the future.
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
As organizations evolve from virtualized infrastructures to private clouds, IT management must measure success by the efficiencies of the infrastructure in providing end users with flexible and cost-effective services and service levels. NetApp® OnCommand® Insight storage resource management software provides service analytics that help enterprises manage the complexity of this transition. OnCommand Insight provides a holistic view into complex multivendor and multiprotocol storage services and powerful analytics to help organizations fully leverage the promise of cloud computing.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Today’s organisations are tasked with analysing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organisations are finding that in order to deliver analytic insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems. A data lake is an architectural approach that allows you to store enormous amounts of data in a central location, so it’s readily available to be categorised, processed, analysed, and consumed by diverse groups within an organisation? Since data—structured and unstructured—can be stored as-is, there’s no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.
If you're researching storage solutions for a small or medium enterprise (SME) you need to look at features, cost, reliability, service and support.

Business happens at the speed of “right now” across departmental, physical, geographical and organizational lines. Secure, anywhere, anytime access to the most up-to-minute business content ensures that employees, partners and customers can do business faster. Neither remote VPN access nor cloud-only sharing solutions provide the flexibility, security, and universal access required to support today’s business. What’s needed is a solution that offers the benefits of cloud-based file access along with the control and
manageability of local file systems.
