DataDirect Networks to Help Australian Metro Area Manage Video Surveillance Data

data-direct-networksDataDirect Networks has been selected to store video surveillance data generated by the Public Transport Authority’s network of surveillance cameras in Perth, Australia.

DDN’s video surveillance and storage archive system is designed to store up to 20 petabytes of data, the company said Monday.

PTA intends for the centralized video surveillance storage to help detect and prevent criminal activities in the metropolitan area’s rail, bus and ferry services.

The customer will be able to ingest video data from 1,800 live and recorded cameras, DDN says.

PTA also seeks to stop graffiti vandalism using its video surveillance and storage platform that is virtualized using VMware’s service.
