With the rapid growth of video data from various sources, there arise requirements for both online real-time analysis and offline batch processing of large-scale video data. Existing video processing systems fall short in addressing many challenges in large-scale video processing, for example performance, data storage, and fault-tolerance. We proposes a general cloud-based architecture and platform that can provide a robust solution to intelligent analysis and storage for video data based on deep learning. We have implemented the BiF architecture using both Hadoop platform and Storm platform. The proposed architecture can handle continual surveillance video data effectively, where real-time analysis, batch processing, distributed storage and cloud services are seamlessly integrated to meet the requirements of video data processing and management. The evaluations show that the proposed approach is efficient in terms of performance, storage, and fault-tolerance.
