The client came to NorPix with a requirement for recording video from 2 cameras with a resolution of 9 megapixels at a rate of 290 frames per second or 2,500 Mbytes/second for a duration over 6 hours.
Recording at this rate amounts to over 54 Terabytes of disk space. Unfortunately, even today’s most advanced SSDs max out in capacities of approximately 4 Terabytes. As a result, the client’s application would require over 16 individual SSDs in one computer just to record from a single camera. Due to the expense of the multiple SSDs, the system was cost prohibitive for the client.
