BCDVideo Aurora Server Series: A full purpose-built video solution

Product Profile

The pressure small businesses face to upgrade away from outdated DVR video systems often results in the acceptance of low-quality, white-box servers. Latency and downtime plague cheap solutions with parts consistently becoming overwhelmed. While the use of cheap servers may have been acceptable a decade ago, they predictably fail when used in modern IP video systems.

More than ever, surveillance systems depend on high-availability operation. To maintain this “always on” approach, simply upgrading away from white-box servers is not enough. A simplified, reliable network is required. Without proper back-end technology, the entire video system will inevitably go offline.

Increase total system reliability

Implementing new high-performance infrastructure requires a comprehensive, purpose-built solution – all while remaining simple to manage and cost-effective; however, designing and deploying a complete end-to-end solution can become complicated, causing an increase in staff and integrator maintenance commitments.

When upgrading outdated video systems, pairing purpose-built servers with cost-effective, reliable networking is a solution any integrator can support. With a certified throughput of over 400Mbps, the award-winning BCDVideo Aurora Server Series uses the same enterprise SATA helium drives that high-availability NAS and SAN systems use at an economical price.

Edge-Core Networking

Aurora servers pair seamlessly with Edge-Core Networking to create a simplified end-to-end video solution for SMB. Each Edge-Core switch provides simple Gigabit PoE allowing them to leverage existing high-performance PCs by improving application responsiveness and file transfer time. Additionally, Edge-Core switches are built for simple set-up – no need for extensive network certifications.

The unique financial requirements of the small project market have led many integrators to settle for ineffective solutions. With BCDVideo Aurora Servers and Edge-Core Networking, a full purpose-built video solution is possible at an economical price point – all backed by a 5-year warranty.
