If a disaster strikes where the GV-System, GV-Recording Server or GV-IP Devices are located, the recording data remain safe in a different location.

Features
  • Remote backup
  • Up to 200 units of GV-IP Devices supported
  • Up to 12 units of GV-System supported (32 ch per unit)
  • Up to 3 units of GV-Recording Server supported (128 ch per unit)
  • Up to 10 backup rules for working and non-working days independently for GV-System and GV-IP Devices
  • Support for backing up GV-System recordings according to event types (all types, motion or I/O trigger)
  • E-Mail alerts for low disk space, disconnection and file transfer failure
  • Online data analysis by Event Count, File Size and Time
  • Failover support (GV-IP Devices only)

Network and Hard Disk Requirements for GV-IP Devices

The server's backup speed and transmitting capacity vary depending on the number of Gigabit connections. The number of Gigabit network cards required to receive 200 GV-IP Devices and to support remote access of backed up data are listed below according to the resolution of the source video.

Also note the maximum number of hosts supported by a single hard disk to calculate the number of hard disks required.

Recommended Network and Hard Disk Requirements for Connecting to GV-Recording Server
When GV-Backup Center connects with GV-Recording Server, it will back up the recordings of all the channels connected to the GV-Recording Server. Each GV-Backup Center supports up to 3 units of GV-Recording Server, with each GV-Recording Server being connected under an independent LAN.
 
Hard Disk Requirements for Receiving Data from GV-Recording Server
To back up the recordings of 128 channels, it is required to meet the maximum bit rate supported by the GV-Recording Server and the maximum number of channels assigned to a single hard disk.
Number of GV-Recording Server Data Size per Ch Total Size Recommended HDD requirements Time required to transfer all files
1 unit (128 ch) 162 MB 20736 MB 1 TB 7200RPM HDD x 2 (SATA3) 03:10 min

3 units (384 ch) 162 MB 62208 MB 1 TB 7200RPM HDD x 5 (SATA3) 04:18 min
Note:
  1. The results were obtained using SATA3 hard disks with an average write speed of 100 MB/s.
  2. The results were obtained with video clip time set to 5 minutes. If the time required to transfer all files exceeds the clip time, file transferring to GV-Backup Center may not be able to keep up with recording.
Maximum Bit Rate Supported by GV-Recording Server (based on 128 Ch)
To back up all 128 channels of recordings from GV-Recording Server, it is recommended to install the following numbers of hard disks in the server of GV-Backup Center, in addition to the 1 hard disk used for installing GV-Backup Center.
