Milestone certifies BCDVideo Nova Server and Storage Series with XProtect VMS

Product Profile

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has now tested and reported performance component certification of BCDVideo’s Nova Server and Storage Series.

IT infrastructure, server, storage and client platforms are integral parts of networked video management deployments, so any miscalculations of the server or storage requirements impact the success of a system's operation, causing system outages and downtime. To address this, Milestone worked closely with BCDVideo to ensure that their systems can be optimised for the Milestone XProtect® software portfolio, helping implementations to be specified, built and delivered as optimal systems for each customer's technical environment.

These tests identify that the system integrations meet minimum expected performance thresholds based on known benchmarks for best practice. The certification also measures the maximum number of cameras, at a given frame rate, resolution and codec that can be supported by the server and storage system. A summary report from the Solution Certification includes optimal configuration for a surveillance system using the Milestone XProtect VMS with BCDVideo. This contains the solution architecture, the performance results, use-case information, and detailed system configurations for the components of the combined solution.

“The BCDVideo storage solution to date is among the best VRP/NRP that Milestone has tested with the given parameters. With the video profile used for the tests, the system should easily support 150 cameras (storage limited). The system outperformed the given video simulator and testing had to stop with the given parameters: the maximum number of cameras achieved on the system was set at 150 1MP cameras at 10 frames per second and 60% video compression. It is noteworthy that this was achieved with only 32% of the system resource utilisation on the BCDVideo server,” says Jeff Burgess, President/CEO of BCDVideo.

Both system integrators and end customers of this best-practice, Milestone-certified system can rest assured that their video will record and archive successfully. BCDVideo’s enterprise-grade VRP solution has been designed for maximum performance on a Milestone XProtect platform with long-term value and performance in mind.
