The Avigilon Video Archive is a high-capacity video storage expansion solution for security and IT teams to cost-effectively retain petabytes (PB) of video and comply with video retention policies and industry regulations. Fully integrated with Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software and Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs), the Avigilon Video Archive simplifies the design, set-up and management of video storage.



Simplifies management of multiple petabytes of video data and provides system health status in the ACC dashboard or through Avigilon Cloud Services.


Delivers a cost-effective and scalable solution that grows with your organization, featuring enterprise-grade drives from 225 TB to 1.5 PB per NVR.


Built-in Erasure Coding technology outperforms traditional JBOD and RAID storage systems to deliver superior reliability and near zero downtime, helping to ensure video archives are preserved for swift on-demand retrieval and review.


Extends the storage capacity of NVRs seamlessly, and supports MultiPath Input Output (MPIO) to eliminate single point of failure while load balancing across redundant NVR connections.
