Configuration for BlueIris

Post by DasMoritz » Fri Oct 09, 2020 9:02 am

Hello together,

first of all: Sorry for my bad english, I am from germany so please, don't fry me ;)

I wan't to build a machine for the BlueIris software, built on a used computer.
The system should work with 10 - 12 5MP Reolink Ip-Cameras, based on motion-detection by BlueIris.

Actually I have the following idea:

Fujitsu Esprimp P956 Refurbished with:

- Intel i7-6700 (3,4Ghz, Quad Core, 8 Threads)
- 8GB RAM
- 256GB SSD for Windows 10
- 4 TB WD Purple or something else for Surveillance
- no extra VGA-Card

The only purpose of the system is to run BlueIris and save the recorded files.
The system will run only with a LAN an power connection and should be administrated via RDP or Intel Active Management Technology (iAMT) - if possible?

In the same LAN is a HP Microserver runnig (Xeon 1240, 16GB RAM and 6TB of Storage) based on XPenology / Synology DSM which should be used as a backup for the recorded files.

My questions:
Could I use the above called system or is there something else, that is higher recommended?

Thank you very much,
Moritz

I think your system as noted would be just fine with the only tweak/exception that you may want a bit more RAM. BI in my experience doesn't require very much but RAM is cheap and I wouldn't put anything into production without at least 12GB.... 16 if you can swing it. Anything beyond that is gravy but overkill. I was going to comment on the disk space but you already mentioned a NAS on another system so if you're archiving to that, you really should be fine. 4TB for 10-12 cameras wouldn't get you too much history, though how many days you want to archive is up to you. You can never have too little disk space though!
