I am asking about a video surveillance storage solution as we have to store 100 terabytes/day of live video stream that is coming from 900 PTZ cameras. We also have to keep the recordings in storage for 90 days before archiving.

Software/Hardware used:
900 PTZ camera

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That’s a massive amount of data. You probably need multiple servers to be able to write the data at once, so you’ll probably want some massive NAS units. NetApp, and EMC both make a nice NAS which can scale to the size you are talking about.
