The design of the exhibits, which feature pulsing and low-light conditions, proved too challenging, however, for traditional, closed-circuit TV technology. Additionally, the technology team sought a video surveillance solution that could be monitored remotely and modified easily to accommodate changing exhibition layouts. Annex executives also wanted to retain data-intensive video footage for up to a month eventually, which posed a storage capacity issue.
After enlisting the support of security firm ADT and All Covered, a Redwood City, Calif.-based technology services partner, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC invested in a leading-edge video surveillance solution featuring 48 high-resolution IP network cameras from Mobotix Vision Systems integrated with Overland's scalable, high-performance Snap Server 620 NAS line.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC leverages its unified security and storage solution to thoroughly monitor activity in its 25,000 square-foot facility while retaining data-intensive video footage for up to a month.

Ideally suited for this particular application, the Snap Server's small footprint combined with outstanding scalability and ease of use deliver exceptional storage capacity. The dual-core processor can be configured with four enterprise-class SATA II drives and up to 88 TBs to increase storage capacity as well as retain video footage for longer periods of time. Snap Server also comes embedded with GuardianOS(TM) 5.0 software, which includes heightened RAID 6 and 10 data protection, access security, improved heterogeneous file sharing and streamlined management.
