Avigilon Control Center 5 Video Series – Episode 4: Fault Tolerance

Jun 4, 2014


“Fault tolerance is the ability for ACC to keep operating normally in the presence of network failures or server failures.” – Shaun Marlatt, software system architect at Avigilon. 

At some point, all security personnel will encounter problems with their servers or networks. ACC 5 was designed to withstand unforeseen issues with a user’s video surveillance system and protect their recorded footage and saved settings. In the fourth and final installment of our four-part Avigilon Control Center 5 Series, we explain how fault tolerance – the innovative feature inspired by internet cloud technology - keeps your video surveillance system running smoothly in the event of a server breakdown.

Told through the words of our key engineers and product managers, each episode in our Avigilon Control Center 5 Video Series highlights a unique feature of the latest version of our award-winning ACC software and gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration behind the innovation.
