The Video Insight Server supports Automated Failover at no additional software cost. When utilizing the Video Insight Single Database configuration, a physical or virtual server can be designated as a Failover. This server will monitor the other servers and inherit the cameras of a failed device.

For example, if we have the five servers with one designated as a Failover, when one of the four stops writing information to the SQL database, the Failover Server will assume the role of the failed server and all camera traffic will now be associated with that server. Once the failed server is put back into service, restarting the primary server will move the cameras back to their original location.
