Hardware Recommendations

When assessing the hardware specifications and amount of storage needed, we recommend that you please reach out to one of our Partners specializing in Servers and Storage, as well as the camera manufacturer you will be utilizing.

You may utilize the OnSSI Hardware & Storage Calculator to estimate requirements, but camera and server manufacturers will be able to provide the most accurate estimations of their hardware’s performance.
