It does have all the hallmarks of an expensive and intrusive solution in search of a problem. Why does Auckland Transport need this - especially building a real-time licence plate database, and surveillance of social media?

Don't care, as long as the cameras are in public places. People can see you anyway, so whatever.

Seems odd that Auckland Transport are doing this rather than the Police....

Is it just me or is there a hint of Omnicorp in there somewhere?

I always think of The Life and Times of Tim before Robocop when someone says Omnicorp.

TA: All the data gathered by the cameras will be processed by HP cloud servers based in Palo Alto, California.

What could possibly go wrong? ; ).

This rang alarm bells for me too. Surely Aucklands surveillance data should be kept in NZ so it is subject to NZ laws.

It seems completely wrong that a US court could require HP to hand over Aucklands surveillance data to a US law enforcement body.

processed, not stored - and likely due to HP only offering this service out of there.

They are buying a tonne of 3PARs I believe (could be wrong), so lots of data will be stored locally.
