To make sure that Cloud Archives is constantly available and accommodates for potential network outages and variations in video recording throughput, your network must meet minimum uplink throughput and communication port requirements.
|Uplink throughput to the cloud||30% higher than video recording throughput|
|Network availability||Minimum 99.9% guaranteed (SLA) by the Internet service provider|
|Network latency||Less than 150 milliseconds with one Azure data center: http://www.azurespeed.com/Azure/Latency|
|Communication ports||TCP port 443 (HTTPS) open|
|Firewall rule||Allow URLs *.blob.core.windows.net/|
Your network must provide a guaranteed uplink that is 30% greater than the video throughput recorded by all the Archivers or Auxiliary Archivers configured on the server on which you will install Cloud Archives.
- If your system has one Archiver that records 100 Mbps of video, your network must provide a guaranteed uplink to the cloud of at least 130 Mbps.
- If your system has two Archivers that record 100 Mbps of video each, your network must provide a guaranteed uplink of at least 260 Mbps.
