We are using Axis network cameras and found the biggest issue was the storage space needed to retain 30 days worth of recordings.  We had to setup a separate server to handle just the cameras and the storage of their imagery.

As far as network overload it is all based on the settings on the cameras and what resolution of what and the fps.
