The DVSA Premium series, Bosch Digital Video Storage Array, is built for the security industry's most demanding digital video storage applications, providing high capacity, unlimited flexibility and unmatched reliability.

Bosch DVSA satisfies the ever increasing demands of CCTV for video - high speed recording, high performance playback, uninterruptable reliability and massive capacities. With complete RAID 5 protection and SATA hard drives, it is ideally suited for when the highest level of data availability is demanded.

The "Premium" models are fully featured RAID 5 disk arrays. With the focus on nonstop reliabillity all critical components (including the drive trays, power supply units and cooling modules) are hot-swappable within the cableless modular chassis.

Bosch DVSA "Premium"models are also designed for expansion. Dual-stack connectors allow for daisy-chaining the disk arrays for when extremely large capacities are required per DVR or NVR. Alternatively 2 DVRs can share a single DVSA disk array using the dual-host capacity, which improves the cost-effectiveness of the RAID-based solution.

In the event of failure, the Bosch Digital Video Storage Array sounds an audible alarm to notify a user. The units also ensure that system managers are constantly updated on status via a choice of channels, including email, fax, LAN broadcast, SNMP traps, MSN Messenger, ICQ and SMS messages. The choice of channel depends on the infrastructure in place and user preferences.

Up to 8 or 16 SATA drive channels are routed through the backplane board to the lockable drive trays installed on the front panel of the Bosch DVSA. The completely cableless, backplane-based design eliminates problems associated with cable connections and offers a higher level of serviceability.

Bosch DVSA supports multiple RAID configurations, each with distinct write policy, stripe size and optimization modes. Hot rebuild and numerous fault correction mechanisms ensure the highest standard of RAID protection. Each unit has a battery backup unit (BBU) installed to prevent data loss during a power failure. Combined with comprehensive firmware features, the Bosch Digital Video Storage Arrays ensure maximum reliability and exceptional data availability in today's data intensive video storage environments. A highly reliable storage solution is assured by factory burnin procedures and extensive selection process for hard disk drives.

The Bosch RAIDWatch Manager is a Java-based RAID management software that provides a user-friendly graphical interface for configuring and monitoring RAID systems. The program is specifically designed to manage Bosch DVSA.

Bosch RAIDWatch simplifies the otherwise complicated process of array configuration, giving system integrators a wide range of convenient RAID management options. The Bosch DVSA is equipped with an Ethernet port for local and remote management. The software gives system administrators fingertip control to instantly deploy, configure, manage and monitor multiple storage subsystems at local or remote locations. The "Install Once, Run Anywhere" convenience saves time and ensures continuous operation. With WAN/LAN support an operator can manage multiple Bosch DVSA from a single workstation.
