New offerings consolidate and simplify video surveillance infrastructure through software innovation, giving security integrators more choice, more flexibility, and a path to subscription and managed services
SAN JOSE, CA., March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Quantum Corporation (NASDAQ: QMCO), the leader in solutions for video and unstructured data, today announced the Unified Surveillance Platform (USP), a resilient, flexible and secure software platform for recording and storage of CCTV data. In addition to introducing this software platform, Quantum is introducing a new line of intelligent network video recording (NVR) servers. Smart NVRs combine Quantum Unified Surveillance Platform software with a purpose-built NVR server to create a next-generation integrated device for capturing and recording surveillance video. These new offerings expand Quantum’s video surveillance portfolio, which also includes hyperconverged devices from recently acquired Pivot3 video surveillance assets, standard NVRs and long-term retention solutions.
Quantum USP software simplifies video recording infrastructure and lowers total cost of ownership by consolidating server compute, storage, and networking resources into a single, unified, scalable system that hosts the video management system ( VMS) and other common security applications. Quantum USP software runs on any standard server to give security integrators flexibility in the server hardware they use and provides them with a path to subscription-based revenue and managed services with a model simple and convenient subscription license. Additionally, Quantum’s new smart NVR can run multiple physical security applications, unlike other NVRs, on a single server to reduce cost and complexity for security integrators and their customers. These new offerings expand Quantum’s portfolio of end-to-end solutions for video surveillance data capture, storage, analysis and retention.
“With the strategic acquisitions of Pivot3’s monitoring business and EnCloud’s hyperconverged software last year, we have expanded our customer and systems integrator base and our go-to-market offerings with proven technology. in the field for critical surveillance workloads,” Ross Fujii, Managing Director, Strategic Markets, for Quantum. “I am encouraged by the momentum we are seeing in this industry and the growth opportunity in CCTV data management. We are bringing even more differentiated value to the market with our USP software optimized for video data and Smart NVRs, both offered in flexible form factors of consumer models that provide system integrators and customers with the convenience and choice they desire.”
Quantum USP provides a resilient, flexible, and secure platform for mission-critical video
The Quantum USP is based on software technology that Quantum acquired last year from EnCloudEn. Quantum has developed and optimized the software to meet the unique needs of the video surveillance market, especially for organizations where video is critical to their security objectives. Quantum USP offers several unique benefits, including:
- Flexibility for system integrators and customers to use their choice of server hardware
- Convenience of subscription-based software license plans with varying terms
- Fast video capture and instant playback with intelligent cache management optimized for VMS applications
- Ability to create storage pools from mixed media types (HDD, SSD, NVMe, etc.) to meet application-specific performance and cost requirements
- “Write online/distribute offline” algorithm to keep pace with video ingest and avoid sensitivity to dropped frames
- Built-in data center-grade digital security to prevent unauthorized access and malware
- Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) through strategic use of open source, including an integrated KVM hypervisor, software-defined networking, and management console for easy deployment and management
Introducing a new range of smart NVRs to reduce costs and simplify deployment
Quantum Smart NVRs combine Quantum USP software with a purpose-built recording server to create a next-generation integrated device for capturing and recording surveillance video in small to medium-sized deployments. Unlike other NVRs, the Quantum Smart NVR offers several advantages, including:
- Ability to run multiple applications on a single NVR to reduce the number of recordings or other security servers required
- Built-in data center-grade digital security to prevent unauthorized access and malware
- Predictive health and resource monitoring, including VMS application event management
- Simple, menu-driven, one-click setup and management
- Available in ultra-dense 2U and 4U smart NVRs offering up to 960TB of capacity in a single chassis
“We chose to partner with Quantum because they offer best-in-class software for video surveillance storage that we believe will revolutionize the industry with its ingestability, resilience, and ability to run on any what a server,” said Rommel Roberts, CEO of ReddWare, a maker of hardware solutions specifically for the needs of the surveillance and physical security industry. “As a hardware manufacturer with roots in systems integration, we offer unique expertise and hardware designed for the needs of system integrators and their customers.
