Fulham FC security system iPad
Private cloud plus wireless CCTV enabling remote crowd monitoring...
Fulham Football Club has rolled out a new private cloud-based security system that enables its staff to remotely monitor crowd activity using devices such as Apple's iPad tablet, allowing it to cut its server footprint down from 36 to six.
The new private cloud technology infrastructure links Fulham's Craven Cottage stadium and its Motspur Park training ground.
Previously the club used a network of six VHS recorders and 27 cameras to keep an eye on fans but this stand-alone storage infrastructure system was costly and difficult to manage and maintain, according to Nicolas Pendlebury, Fulham's head of IT, as tapes needed to be manually scanned and cameras checked before each match.
