Issue Description

How do I calculate the number of cameras that can be connected to the platform and determine the hard disk space that is required?


  • The live network uses 2285 V2 servers and 2600 TB storage.
  • 2 Mbit/s streams are required.
  • The streams must be stored for 30 days.


Solution

Each 2285 V2 server can connect to a maximum of 128 cameras.


  1. Calculate the storage space required by one camera to store 2 Mbit/s streams for 30 days: 1.1 x 2 x 3600 x 24 x 30/8/1024 = 696 GB.
  2. Divide the configured storage capacity by 696 to obtain the number of cameras that can be connected. Note that each server can connect to a maximum of 128 cameras.
