VerbaPRODUCT GUIDEKeep your wordsVerba Recording SystemReliability and uptimeThe Verba Recording System provides several functions to increase reliability and uptime inorder to support mission critical environments. A brief overview about the most importantfeatures: Recording service survivability - all recording services in the system are able to dotheir job on their own, even if other service failures occur (e.g. the database servicegoes down, the recording service can still continue its operation).High availability – the system support HA deployment models, where none of thesystem components is a single point of failure. Depending on the applied recordingtechnology, the recorders are deployed in a redundant way to ensure the highavailability for the solution.The Verba Recording System is a software-only solution, installed on regular Intelbased PC servers. The configuration of the servers can also increase reliability:redundant disk arrays, redundant power supply, etc.Capacity and expandabilityThe Verba Recording System has outstanding performance figures due to the carefullydesigned system architecture and process optimization using Intel performance libraries andmulti-threading tools. A single Verba Recording Server is able to record up to 500simultaneous calls depending on the recording method, codec, etc. There is no limitation forthe number of Recording Servers in a single deployment. The following list provides someinformation about the performance of the system in real life scenarios:11 Largest archive:10,000,000 calls online searchable Highest volume:50,000 calls per day in one system Most phones:6,500 recorded phones on one system Highest performance:550 simultaneous calls on one server Most sites:Recording of 65 locations in one system Best compression:320 hours per 1 Gigabyte
