Earlier this year, we announced HC3 Video Surveillance and Security Solutions, optimized to consolidate video storage, video management, and analytics workloads. Scale Computing HC3 is an IT infrastructure platform with the performance, ease of use, and resilience required to support surveillance, security, and IoT requirements.
Video surveillance is critical to business security and monitoring, yet organizations’ IT teams can’t be everywhere, all the time. Users are shifting from analog video cameras, CCTV, and proprietary recording appliances to digital, IP-based cameras that stream data over IP networks. Managing the combined soup of traditional video management systems, monitoring, and new IoT technologies for video analytics and artificial intelligence continues to be a major challenge for organizations today.
Building server and storage infrastructure to support critical video surveillance needs is easy with Scale Computing HC3 Software and Hyperconverged Infrastructure Appliances. HC3 automatically handles hardware failures, making the system easy to manage from day one and easy to scale to expand resources when they are needed without adding more “islands” to manage. The result is a vast improvement from legacy video, where systems adding additional legacy server based VMS/NVR monolithic systems was expensive and time consuming.
Scale Computing’s HC3 Video Surveillance and Security Solutions benefits include:
- Integrated IT deployment for smaller surveillance systems when the current video surveillance does not meet the requirements of all organizations. For simpler deployments with a moderate number of cameras (tens to a couple hundred), running a VMS workload in one or more VMs alongside other IT infrastructure applications like AD, DNS, File and Print, etc. can greatly reduce the number of infrastructure systems to manage.
- Dedicated video surveillance infrastructure and storage. Running VMS software on top of Scale Computing HC3 hyperconverged and edge computing IT infrastructure provides the needed storage capacity and performance needs of high resolution cameras, regulations and legal requirements, and immediate access to historical data.
- Video surveillance delivered at the Edge and at remote branch offices when expensive bandwidth and IT staff are not an option. The HC3 platform is easy and automated enough for non-IT team members to manage through its entire lifecycle.
The Scale Computing team will be exploring the benefits of Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) for video surveillance and security systems in an upcoming webinar with Spiceworks. Join us Thursday, April 15 at 2:00pm EDT to learn how HCI is used to simplify management, remove layers of hardware, and reduce costs, as well as best practices for deploying VMS systems on the award-winning Scale Computing HC3. Register for the webinar here.
