High-capacity, high-reliability, sequential video surveillance storage system


COLDSTORE is a network attached Sequential Array designed specifically for today's video surveillance systems which need very high capacity storage for mega-pixel IP cameras and/or long archive periods. Designed from the ground up for IP video surveillance, this sequential storage system achieves the following unique features :

• Massive 180TB capacity using around 60 watts – a 90% power saving versus RAID
• Very high disk reliability even using the lowest cost disk drives available
• No data loss on disk failure, with no rebuild required, and simple disk hot-swap
• Sequential filing system (SFS™) uses hard disks sequentially for easy location of data
• Uses any mix of SATA drive manufacturer, model and capacity




• Networked attached server running L.A.I.D.™ with SFS™ disk filing system
• Unlimited scalability with multiple CS units
• Embedded Linux OS on solid state memory

Data interface

• Dual Gigabit Ethernet

System interface:

• System control direct from 3rd party client application (SDK and network protocols available)
• Configuration via Veracity COLDSTORE Client application
• Management via front panel, Veracity client application, or 3rd party client application


• 15 x 3.5″ disks (lockable cradles included)
• Max. Capacity (with 12TB disks):
• Raw – 180TB
• Effective – 168TB (Normal COLDSTORE mode)
• Effective – 84TB (Sequential full mirrored-pair mode)

Software configurable alarm I/Os
