Quantum has released new product lines and capabilities to expand its video surveillance and physical security product portfolio, including a new line of network video recording servers, servers for building management systems and GPU-based video analytics and new capabilities for the VS-HCI Series, the company announced on Thursday.
“Our next priority is to ensure business continuity and site security,” said Jamie Lerner, president and CEO, Quantum. “Video surveillance plays a vital role in securing infrastructure and critical assets, and in protecting citizens. We’ve applied our years of expertise to build a comprehensive portfolio for surveillance, and we are responding quickly to the needs of our customers.”
Quantum has added new offerings to its existing solutions for shared archive storage for surveillance, based on its StorNext file system and the recently announced acquisition of the ActiveScale object storage solutions, including Network Video Recording (NVR) servers transforming the company’s VS-HCI Series.
NVR will supply customers with a range of affordable, reliable and high-performance options for surveillance recording and video management. Quantum’s VST mini-tower NVRs are designed to support the surveillance of retail stores, gas stations and small buildings and campuses.
Quantum has also introduced the VS2108-A analytics server to support the extreme graphics processing and parallel workload demands of video analytics. The VS2108-A will be configured with up to six GPUs in a compact 2U chassis and will accelerate results with leading video analytics software platforms.
The company’s new VS1110-A Enterprise application server utilizes the same virtual machine (VM) failover capability found in Quantum’s VS-HCI series. The VS1110-A server can be monitored remotely via a secure web-based portal, enabling facilities managers, integrators and Quantum support to proactively monitor this system anytime, anywhere.
In addition, Quantum has enhanced the capabilities of the VS-HCI series with secure, remote monitoring via a web-based portal. The VS-HCI series will provide hyper-converged infrastructure for surveillance recording, video management and building operations. The highly available architecture scales out as video camera counts increase and makes it easy to manage operations by running multiple physical security workloads on a single platform.
To support the company’s new offerings, Quantum announced that it had completed the acquisition of the ActiveScale object storage business from Western Digital in March 2020. With the purchase, object storage can be used as a tier for multi-petabyte surveillance infrastructure.
“Customers who adopt intelligent, scalable storage as the foundation of their new surveillance and security system leave more budget for cameras, analytics, and other tools dedicated to protecting people and property,” said Gavin Bortles, president, Kepler Networks.
