Quantum Introduces New Product Line for Video Surveillance and IIoT

By Ken Briodagh

In a recent release, Quantum announced the VS-Series, a storage platform designed for surveillance and industrial IoT applications. The VS-Series is available in a range of server choices, suitable for large and small deployments, the company said. Using the VS-Series security professionals can efficiently record and store surveillance footage and run an entire security infrastructure on a single platform.

Quantum’s VS-Series architecture is based on the Quantum Cloud Storage Platform (CSP), a new software-defined storage platform designed for storing machine and sensor-generated data. Like storage technologies used in the cloud, the Quantum CSP is software-defined, can be deployed on bare metal, as a virtual machine, or as part of a hyperconverged infrastructure. Unlike other software-defined storage technologies, the Quantum CSP was designed for video and other forms of high-resolution content – engineered for low latency, maximizing the streaming performance of large files to storage.

The Quantum Cloud Storage Platform reportedly enables high-speed video recording with optimal camera density and can host and run certified VMS management applications, recording servers, and other building control servers on a single platform. The VS-Series product line is being offered in a variety of deployment options; including software-only, mini-tower, 1U, 2U, and 4U hyperconverged servers.

“Buildings and cities have internet connected devices everywhere – cameras, badge readers, lighting, HVAC systems, and more – which creates a need to consolidate and manage this digital data in one place,” said Keith Bishop, Strategic Growth Manager for Data Enabled Business, Johnson Controls. “Being able to converge surveillance recording, VMS systems, and other building control applications onto a single platform means our customers can simplify their infrastructure as we help them create smarter and safer buildings and cities.”

 “As we worked with partners to design a platform for surveillance, we knew that streaming performance and camera density would be critical, as well as hyperconvergence both for efficiency and to consolidate the security infrastructure,” said Jamie Lerner, President and CEO, Quantum. “I’m pleased that we were able to bring this VS-Series to market so quickly – it demonstrates both the software-defined nature of the Quantum Cloud Storage Platform and how we can take our years of expertise working in movie and TV production and construct a platform with leading performance for the surveillance industry.”
