How Much Storage Do You Need?

For most businesses, it is recommended to store footage from commercial security cameras for at least 30 days. For large operations, camera footage is often stored for up to 90 days, requiring a larger storage solution with more capacity. 

Storing more footage generally means using more physical space and hard drives, as well as more terabytes of space. The average 12-camera business surveillance system requires at least 8 terabytes of space to store 1080p footage for 30 days, at industry standard frames per second.
