Pivot3 has launched new automation and intelligence enhancements to its Acuity software platform to address the system administration, maintenance and availability challenges within large-scale video surveillance deployments, the company reported on Wednesday.
“The sheer scale of these deployments presents new management challenges for security personnel to keep systems up-to-date and operating at peak performance and efficiency. Pivot3 is meeting this growing challenge with expanded automation and intelligence capabilities to provide customers with peace of mind, knowing their system is operating at its utmost level of resilience and performance,” said Ben Bolles, vice president of product management, Pivot3.
Pivot3’s intelligent system health and best practices analysis features will reduce cost, provide constant system uptime in large multi-petabyte environments and enable customers to automate end-to-end system life-cycle management processes.
The company’s platform will be built upon Pivot3 Intelligence Engine, which has integrated automated system management capabilities such as performance optimization, data protection, auto-healing, system health monitoring and analytics that are shared to Pivot3’s Support Cloud.
Pivot3’s system will automate systems administration and maintenance tasks to reduce operating expenses and enable organizations to expand and improve their physical security posture with fewer specialized IT skills.
Pivot3’s Intelligence Engine will feature system-level upgrade orchestration and best practices analyzer for large-scale environments. The Upgrade Manager will perform end-to-end system updates by automating system administration tasks to improve life-cycle management of large-scale systems and reduce required specialized skills to run these sophisticated deployments.
The Health and Best Practices Analyzer will automatically verify system health and detect anomalies to lower the risks and liabilities associated with video evidence recording and access. The system will also ensure that best practices are integrated.
“Pivot3’s differentiated expertise in automating the management of very large, highly resilient infrastructure deployments reduces the dependence on specialized IT skills and ultimately lowers cost of ownership. This is very important to our extensive list of federal, state and local government customers, both in civilian and defense agencies,” said Bruce Milne, Pivot3 CMO and VP of Business Development.
