Vicon Industries Inc. of Hauppauge, New York, is replacing its line of RAID storage devices with new iSCSI SAN RAID models that use newer networking and storage technology. The new models feature multiple hot-swappable hard drives that provide secure storage of recorded digital video. Because the new units are designed for use in a storage area network (SAN), they do not need to be directly connected to or in close proximity to a recorder. The units exist as part of a network and can store video from one or multiple network recording devices regardless of location. The iSCSI protocol allows them to transmit and receive signals over regular Ethernet cabling and to transmit up to 25 times farther than previous generations of RAIDs. The devices are available with eight, 14, or 42 bays and provide up to 36 terabytes of storage.
