New iSCSI Video Storage Arrays from Bosch Designed for Maximum Protection of Recorded Video

Highest reliability and scalability for even the most demanding video surveillance applications

  • RAID-DP technology for uninterrupted system reliability in the event of double-disk failures.
  • Scalable and easy-to-manage network video solution for storage up to 96 TB

    Bosch Security Systems announces the release of the DSA-N2B40 iSCSI Video Storage Array Series, offering maximum reliability and scalability for even the most demanding video surveillance applications. The DSA Series is the second generation of Bosch Video Storage Arrays engineered as part of the company's global partnership with NetApp.

    The DSA-N2B40 assures maximum protection of recorded video with RAID-4 or RAID-DP technology. RAID-DP technology delivers uninterrupted system reliability even in the event of double-disk failures. Redundant hot-swappable power supplies and cooling fans provide additional safeguards from disk malfunctions. The system also features real-time health reporting and advanced warning of potential issues.

    Designed as a scalable and easy-to-manage network solution, it enables users to easily add capacity when more storage is required - up to 96 TB. One base unit can be connected to up to six disk shelf expansion units to form a storage stack. Each stack is a single system to monitor and manage, requiring only one IP address.

    Offering a lower cost-of-ownership than RAID-5 storage solutions, the high performance DSA-N2B40 Series features four gigabit Ethernet ports that enable up to 256 concurrent high-speed iSCSI connections. Like all Bosch/NetApp disk arrays, the DSA-N2B40 Series is fully integrated with the Bosch Video Recording Manager 2.0 software for faster setup. The Video Storage Arrays are also compatible with the Bosch Video Management System 2.x.

    The DSA-N2B40 Series of iSCSI Video Storage arrays is part of Bosch's extensive professional CCTV recording and management portfolio, which ranges from very straightforward 4-channel CCTV recorders, through hybrid surveillance systems, to high level Video Storage arrays for the most demanding CCTV applications.
