Quantum announced expansions to its storage solutions family and technology partner ecosystem for video surveillance and security. With the new Xcellis Application Director E, customers in low camera-count environments can now run video management systems (VMS) or analytic applications with directly attached storage. In addition, Arecont Vision, AxxonSoft and Digifort have joined the Quantum Advantage Partner programme, enabling them to test, qualify and integrate their VMS technology with Quantum storage offerings for enhanced customer benefits. Quantum will showcase these and other developments at Intersec 2017 in Dubai, 22-24 January, booth SA I-23.

Data storage for smaller environments

Xcellis Application Director E, a new model in the Xcellis Application Director product line, is a cost-effective video server and storage appliance for smaller-scale camera environments. This new entry-level offering:

  • is ideal for implementations ranging from ten to 25 cameras;
  • fulfils storage requirements from 18TB to 64TB (raw);
  • enables users to manage further data growth through integration into a larger Quantum QXS Series disk-based environment or Xcellis-based tiered architecture.

With the addition of the Xcellis Application Director E, Quantum’s product portfolio for video surveillance infrastructures can now scale from as few as ten cameras to tens of thousands. Xcellis Application Director solutions also enable VMS applications to connect directly to QXS Series disk storage or as clients in an Xcellis environment powered by Quantum’s industry-leading StorNext data management. As a result, users can access data without adding to network traffic for a more efficient video surveillance infrastructure.
