  • (1888PressRelease) December 01, 2016 - The City Hall of Gwangmyeong (South Korea) contracted another premium support license from the data storage vendor RAIDIX and its Korean partner ITServices. The city deploys 200+ HD cameras for public security and traffic safety purposes and continuously extends overall coverage and its video surveillance environment. Data received from the cameras is streamed to multiple media servers at the data center and forwarded to two ATTO switches linked via Fibre Channel 8Gb and running the RAIDIX management software.

    Gwangmyeong is a city in Gyeonggi Province housing a population of just under 500,000 people and running a highly developed urban infrastructure, transport system and retail/wholesale facilities including the world's largest IKEA store. Developing the CCTV network in line with the growing requirements, Gwangmyeong City Hall was facing substantial data storage challenges in terms of scale, performance and TCO.

    In the view of transition from older video formats to HD, Gwangmyeong City Hall was hesitating over adding more storage racks or employing costly enterprise arrays - when RAIDIX's partner ITServices came up with a better value proposition.

    The RAIDIX-powered resilient storage solution delivered two major winning points among others:

    Higher density and hardware savings: JBOD 4U60 instead of JBOD 2U12, 7U instead of A RACK (22U+)
    Direct Fibre Channel connection with no switch required.

    At the core of the data storage system sits the RAIDIX software engine. RAIDIX manages storage clusters and delivers advanced functionality to ensure optimal IOps and throughput, rock-solid fault-tolerance and universal compatibility with standard hardware. The solution supports shared SAN and scale-out NAS and major interfaces like Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and InfiniBand. As part of the solution, the RAIDIX architecture encompasses two high availability controllers working in Active/Active mode.

    The RAIDIX storage appliance connects to a JBOD that houses 60 disks and consolidates 244TB capacity in a single rack. While the majority of RAID controllers operate with either 16 or 32 disks, the RAIDIX technology supports up to 64 drives and survives failure of 3 disks in the same RAID-group (the patented RAID 7.3 level) or up to 32 disks in the array (the patented RAID N+M).

    Data integrity ensured by the triple-parity RAID helps Gwangmyeong reinforce public safety and traffic regulations. Continuous local tech support preserves the peace of mind for the customer's IT service and brings along the undisputed benefits of up-to-date storage technology.

    Moreover, RAIDIX enables elastic cost-efficient scalability - a feature most valued by Gwangmyeong's IT Dept. planning to enhance their CCTV coverage and the number of cameras by a factor of three in the coming years.
