Quantum Corp. announces joint development initiatives with four Video Management System (VMS) prime providers to bring enhanced multi-tier storage solutions to security and surveillance customers worldwide.
The companies include; Aimetis Corp., On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc. (OnSSI), Qognify and Verint Systems Inc. which have joined the Quantum Advantage Program, and certified interoperability with Quantum offerings, including StorNext 5 data management and Quantum QXS hybrid storage.
Quantum’s multi-faceted validation testing with VMS partners such as Aimetis, OnSSI, Qognify and Verint ensures that customers have access to thoroughly tested and integrated storage solutions suited to their unique environment. Quantum’s multi-tier storage makes the combination of storage performance and data retention more affordable, enabling customers to retain surveillance data longer and incorporate real-time analytics into their surveillance program. This economical approach to storage leaves more budget available to spend on cameras and analytics, for a more effective video surveillance environment.
The data protection giant asserts that the company’s surveillance partner ecosystem has tripled in size over the last six months and now includes more than 30 partners which clearly reflect the shift in how the security community views storage.
Alongside, Quantum has continued to collaborate with others to meet the specific needs of the surveillance community:
- Axis Communications, to address the unique surveillance and security challenges found in many healthcare environments;
- Genetec Inc., to create optimized security solutions for transportation environments, including airports, ports and rail systems;
- Milestone Systems, to provide a fully integrated video surveillance solution for critical infrastructure projects.
Citing on the new partnership, Justin Schorn, Vice President, Product Management, Aimetis Corp. said, “Partners and end users can reference the tested configurations from the Aimetis certification process to help build a solution with confidence. Through the partnership with Quantum, we can offer validated configurations, which reduce risk and document expected performance under certain scenarios.”
Mulli Diamant, Vice President of International Business Development, OnSSI said, “Security systems are including more cameras — and higher resolution cameras — than ever before to better capture relevant situational information. Our partnership with Quantum lets us deliver scalable video surveillance and physical security solutions with the storage capacity and real-time access to handle the increased volume of data that these systems generate. In this way, we help security managers achieve their objectives with flexible storage solutions.”
“Quantum continues to expand its robust surveillance and security partner ecosystem by collaborating with the leading innovators in the VMS market. With these collaborations we are delivering a unique platform that supports the performance required for surveillance data analytics and enables significantly longer data retention periods while preserving project budgets,” concludes Wayne Arvidson, Vice President, Surveillance and Security Solutions, Quantum.
