The Benefits of Hybrid-First Strategy for Surveillance 

Reducing data storage costs by over 80% when managing surveillance recordings – this is possible, even in an era of prevalent use of high-resolution cameras and extended data retention mandates globally. 

Adopting the hybrid-first approach, as enabled by Tiger Surveillance’s software solutions, addresses this challenge, while also providing better surveillance data accessibility, protection, and compliance with industry regulations.

The Easy Button

The seamless integration and flexibility offered by Tiger Surveillance’s flagship product  – Surveillance Bridge – make it the perfect option for organizations looking to upgrade their surveillance systems efficiently without interrupting their established procedures. 

 Compatible with all major video management software (VMS), the software can be installed on most recording servers in a matter of minutes, without even interrupting ongoing recordings. 

After installation, users simply point to the camera recording location and designate a target for replication – it can be any cloud, any tier and in fact any other storage option, as seen below. 

Real Problems, Real Solutions

Solving Your Industry Challenges

How the Bridge Technology Works

We Speak Surveillance

With significant expertise in on-premises deployments, Tiger Surveillance understands the factors that slow down cloud transformation as well as its tremendous potential for surveillance. The company’s flagship product, Surveillance Bridge, enables customers to adopt the cloud for unlimited capacity and disaster recovery thus optimizing costs & resources and extending retention times.

How We Solved This Public Safety Problem

The public safety state department was dealing with limited on-premises storage capacity that prevented extending video retention periods and so compromised public safety and criminal investigations. By leveraging Surveillance Bridge, they reduced on-premises retention to just 30 days and utilized cloud storage for archiving, ensuring compliance with retention mandates and effective investigations. The solution eliminated the need for costly upgrades and associated operational challenges.

How We Solved This Convention & Exhibition Industry Problem

The convention center was struggling with aging hardware, off-site data management, and limited backup solutions, hindering their ability to ensure the safety and security of their guests. Surveillance Bridge allowed them to transition to a leaner infrastructure, storing camera data securely in an off-site location while only keeping the most recent footage local. This reduced costs and complexities associated with maintaining an on-premises system, while ensuring valuable footage is always protected.

How We Solved This County Problem

The US county faced the challenge of retaining video data for up to 10 years to address election fraud claims. With Surveillance Bridge, the county extended their video surveillance retention period by seamlessly integrating their existing VMS with the cloud. They can now retain their data for 180 days locally, with a Disaster Recovery copy stored on a cloud archive tier for up to 10 years. The approach ensured compliance with litigation requirements, saved costs and enhanced data protection.

How We Solved This Airport Problem

The airport needed a reliable cloud infrastructure for their new cloud-based surveillance system to enhance security, passenger safety, and operational efficiency. Surveillance Bridge seamlessly extended expensive AWS EBS storage to lower-cost AWS S3 storage. The airport saved costs while storing data in a more durable object store, preventing data loss, system downtime, and compromised security, which could result in significant financial and reputational damage.

Achieve Unprecedented Availability, Scalability & Durability

Keeping up with an ever-increasing number of cameras, camera resolutions, and retention periods may require an exponential increase in local storage. High Availability and seamless failover are also becoming critical to business continuity for many organizations with varying surveillance needs.

Tiger Surveillance was born to be a powerful ally in optimizing already available assets, extending them to the cloud, providing unmatched disaster recovery capabilities, and gaining surveillance insights like never before – with remarkable flexibility and sensitivity to industry-specific challenges.

Integrated at File System Level

Integrated at File System Level

Unlike other solutions on the market that sit on top of the system or require additional hardware or virtualization, our technology integrates into the Windows file system. While your team is working, automatic policies operate transparently in the background to dynamically track local data and replicate it to the cloud.

Smart Stub File Technology

Smart Stub File Technology

Once recordings are moved to the cloud, stub files containing metadata only are kept locally. The VMS continues to record and playback to/from the local disk and always sees recordings as local so there are no changes in operations. Data is automatically retrieved from the cloud on demand.

Native File Formats in Any Cloud Tier

Native File Formats in Any Cloud Tier

The Bridge technology uses non-proprietary formats to ensure customer data is never locked into a single vendor for greater flexibility at no extra cost. Significant cost optimization is achieved by dynamically assigning infrequently accessed data to archive cloud tiers that represent as little as 5% of the cost of immediate access tiers.
